I have a Medion Laptop (using Vista) which will not boot up. Message states that boot configuration is corrupt and displays:
$WINDOWS.~BT\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WINLOAD.EXE and STATUS:0xc000000f
I tried using the Recovery Disk and the Applications and Support Disk that came with the Laptop but neither will start before the above message. Is this terminal?
Thanks for reply Jockie. Sorry to be a bit dim but which key is reboot? As it is I do not require any of the contents of the drive so perhaps there is a program that I could download onto a CD on my desktop and use that to wipe the laptop Hard drive.
I was getting as far as the "expand" step on reinstalling Windows Vista where it froze on 0%. After many attempts to start again in desperation I pressed every function key from 6 - 12 and suddenly the install disk started up again and success fully installed. Many thanks. Now I have another problem. See new entry.
