|HP 2000-351NR Laptop with an AMD E300 APC 1300MHz, Dual Core CPU. 4 GB of RAM (PC3- 10600). Windows 7 Home Premium.|
I have been handed a laptop with an issue that I have as yet been unable to solve. It seems that the owner of the laptop decided to do a system recovery without having recovery software on a disc or flash drive. Once he did the recovery a Windows Boot Manager window opens up and says "Windows failed to start. To fix the problem put in Windows installation disc and run Repair." After this, it says File: \Boot\BCD, Status: 0xc0000225, Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
I put in a Windows 7 Home Premium disc that I had and ran the repair option. It found two partitions of the exact same size (79989), one listed as C: and the other as Unknown.On the unknown, it found a problem and fixed it, but the system did not boot up and the above mentioned screen showed up again. When I tried to run it on the C:, it says that it cannot be run and wants to send Microsoft the error report.
Short of getting in contact with HP and attempting to get a recovery disc, I am at a loss as to how to correct this problem.
