    winload.exe file missing or corrupt


    I started my computer and the following error code came up right after boot:

    Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the
    cause. . .

    File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    Status:0xc000000f
    Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is
    missing or corrupt.



    The only thing that I did was install the new Windows Updates that they
    provided the night before. I cannot get into windows or system restore or
    'revert to previous configuration' and I have tried to boot off of my
    Windows Vista DVD but it will not let me.
    Hopefully someone can help me.

    Set your system to boot from CD.
    bios setup access keys. Go to:

    After to have already installed Mac OS X on my portable one (in dual boot
    with Windows Vista and Fedora 8) and having under way Seen Windows in order
    to control that all it was working, I have found a rather strange error.
    Just I have received the message that follows: " (winload.exe error)
    -----
    <answer>
    It releases the hunting to the problem. After a Pò of googolare and some
    test with some live-disk gnu/linux, the problem comes found in one absence
    of the flag of boot of the partition windows united to a wrong settaggio of
    the archives of configuration of the bootloader of windows. As far as the
    reactivation of the flag of boot the roads they are multiple:
    ....
    Diskpart way { - you start the disc of installation of Seen Windows; -
    selected the information for localization; - you start the restoration
    procedure; - you start the prompt of the commandos; -
    "DISKPART list disk";
    - "DISKPART select disk n";
    - "DISKPART list partition";
    - "DISKPART select partition n";
    - "active DISKPART";
    - "riavviate DISKPART
    exit" and. }
    To this point it does not remain that to correct the archives of
    configuration of the bootloader of windows: - you start the disc of
    installation of Seen Windows; - selected the information for localization; -
    you start the restoration procedure; - you start the prompt of the
    commandos; - "bcdedit.exe /enum" in order to visualize the running
    archives; - "bcdedit.exe /set {default} device partition=C:" in place of
    "C:" inserted your partition windows; - "bcdedit.exe /set {default} osdevice
    partition=C:" in place of "C:" inserted your partition windows; - riavviate.
    Seen Windows hour would have to be started without some problem.
