Windows Boot Manger - Failed to start - Hardware\Software change might be cause.
Posted on 2010-01-02
I have built a pc and had it working fine. Then I deciide that I would purchase a duplicate hard drive and setup raid0/striping. I went trhough the BIOS and correctly(after seeing video from evga) setup the array. I then installed with no troubles the Vista OS from dvd 64bit. Then tried to install drivers, MOBO driver went ok, when i tried to install vista 64bit vga driver got a message that it wasnt recognizing that I was running 64bit os. Checked in computr properties said os was the 64bit also noticed that the performance, that vista checks automaticly, didnt show any improvement for the hard drive. I attempted then to flash BIOS ! mistake ! lot o error.
When starting up I get windows boot manager "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. Status:0xc000000e Info: Unexpected error has occured."
When starting from windows os install dvd, to attempt clean install, I get same boot mngr different message this one says the same fail to start recent hardware\saoftware change.But then says "File:\windows\system32\winload.exe Status:0xc000000e Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt."
I since have succesfully and correctly flashed to new version. But still can not get anywhere just a circle of the same errors.
Have attempted several times to start from scratch and delete dard drives, change arrays, start install without raid, clear mobo boot referance...nothing???
Please help me!
