    Error 0xC0000225

    During install the initial text progress bar goes to 100%, the screen
    goes black, then I get the following error:

    Unextected error has occurred
    0xC0000225

    and some text regarding recent hardware or software change, insert the
    install disk, boot and hit repair.

    This occurs during install,
    ASUS laptop
    ATI Graphics
    AMD Athlon 64
    512MB Ram

    Have tried both 32bit and 64 bit installs.

    Re: Error 0xC0000225

    That error code is often due to the BIOS not being recognised as fully ACPI
    compatible. Do you have the latest BIOS update on the laptop?

    I think this problem may be associated with APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller, not ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface).

    I got the problem described above, and I enabled APIC, which I had disabled for XP Pro only. Following this, Vista installation CD booted just fine.

    Yeah. APIC option in bios fixed this for me. I had disabled it to
    install a version of Linux that I wanted to test and forgot to re-enable
    it during a vista(actually server 2008) test install. After enabling it
    Windows Install started right up.

    i reformatted my computer, but in the progress of that i notice no files
    was actually being installed but the bars / percentages keep going until
    it says reformat was complete. it then restart and re-boost like usually
    so it can get the new setting going. But then i come to this error where
    it say cant boot up file window32, error 0xc0000225. Its similar to this
    http://forums.techarena.in/vista-set...all/561943.htm

    So yeah, its probably because the reformat wasn't actually instilling
    files because it was blocked by something in that thread, apic or w.e.
    Thats why it couldn't boost up because no files was actually installed.
    So how do i fix it? the thread said something about enabling apic in
    bios. I take a look at my bios when it the comp first starts and i see
    it enabled. But i couldn't able to high line on that and make adjustment
    to either disable or enable. It was in a blue color which doesn't allow
    you to go to it so how can i change the apic to disable or enable just
    to see if it works if i disable. Or another way i could do it to get the
    reformat function.

    Because the reformat progress run but there wasn't any files being
    installed so that's probably something blocking it so help me out. My
    computer is a new 2007 bought Fry's computer. Its vista and its a
    desktop.

    I just had this problem after using Acronis 10 to clone a Vista Hard
    drive.

    Not only did the new, larger, hard drive generate the 0xc0000325 Error,
    so did the source drive! So now I had no way to boot the frikken
    computer. No restore media either (this is a cheap Toshiba from Best
    Buy).

    I had put three unholy days of work put into the stinking thing getting
    it all configured for a highly impatient customer. Cloning was the last
    step after updating, removing fruit salad, restoring files and setting
    up Contact, Email, and Web editing software. I was suicidal!

    This is what saved me.

    http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/window...disc-download/

    They're hosting the recovery media for both Vista 64 and Vista 32. It's
    a bittorrent, so you'll have to get a torrent client if you don't
    already have one. I use Vuze, others may know of a better one.

    Got the .iso file (~130Mbytes) burned the CD, started the computer from
    it, and Bliss, oh Bliss! The Vista Recovery Environment asked if I
    wanted to run Recovery (not Install!), detected Hard drive problems,
    asked if I wanted to restart so it could fix em'. I hit OK, the computer
    restarted, and everything is working!

    Even if you don't have a problem now, I highly advise getting the .iso
    files in case you need them down the road. Maybe because your recovery
    CD gets lost/hosed, or because you bought a cheap computer that only
    puts an image of the original HD install back.

    Best download I ever did!
