Help when I start up Windows Vista Home Premium I get then error

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
1. Insert Windows Vista Installation DVD
2. Click Repair your cumputer
3. Click Fix start up problems
Status: 0xc000000f

I have tried all of the above. Have DVD.
I am very experienced.

No doubt that you have already looked but will give you something to look at until someone can help.

Scroll down to the posting on this thread by Divine Logix dated and timed Thursday, May 24, 2007 2:01 PM - looks like a probable cure. Fairly complicated, but as you are "very experienced" you shouldn't have any trouble

Thanks everyone

None of them work

What exactly have you tried?
Start up repair?
Running Chkdsk /f from a command prompt?
Checking that Winload.exe is pointing to the correct partition where Vista is loaded?
Copying winload. exe from one machine to another?

None worked you say, sometimes you need to run Start up repair more than once. Have you tried using the Command Prompt option from the DVD. Here's a guide
