Startup error 'Boot error:0-00'

Q: Startup error 'Boot error:0-00'

When the machine would normally be going to the Windows startup screen, instead it shows two lines of print separated by a blank line, white print on a black screen:

Boot error: 0-00


Select partition to boot, 0-3:_

the underline at the end of the second line is a flashing cursor. It remains with this showing until I enter any character, and hit 'RETURN', whereupon the normal boot process resumes. It doesn't matter if I enter one of the four requested digits or something else, any character will do. While this seems simple enough, it worries me - I don't like partition problems, especially since I'v seen Windows 7 repeatedly simultaneously convert normal partitions on up to three drives at once into completely unreadable garbage that no partitioning software can read. While there seems to be no consequence from this behavior, I've become very skittish since witnessing what Win 7 can so completely foul up. I've had this boot error before, and the only thing that removed it was completely repartitioning and reformatting the drive involved. Does any body recognise this? I've been working on and in computer systems since they were called 'numerical calculators', back in the fifties, and I've never seen this until two years ago. Both times I've seen this start, it's begun at startup from a cold boot, after a long series of drive changes, otherwise I know of no other common factor. I know I'm getting old and stodgy, but I really don't like this. The error stays with the drive, transferring to any other machine intact. Anybody got any ideas on a.) prevention b.) a non-data destructive cure?

Greetings,

I am a first time PC builder. After assembling and installing Windows 7, occasionally I would have a boot error on start up, Windows wouldn't boot because of "recent hardware or software changes". The times it won't boot, my 250 gig ssd won't be appearing in bios. Other times, it would boot fine. I realised my SATA port of the SSD was 6. I changed it to port 1 which was working with my hdd for storage. Now it won't boot or read my ssd at all. Do you think this is a faulty ssd or am I doing something wrong? What's weird is that if it doesn't show in bios and I have a boot error, I can boot from Windows 7 disk, and attempt to install Windows on my ssd. I tried to reinstall Windows on the ssd (on the same partition because I couldn't figure out how to partiton a drive from the ssd on a boot disk) and it wouldn't boot from the start. I have a

I am running Windows 8 on an Asus laptop. Two days ago it was doing updates and restarting. It did this 3 times, and on the third restart I received the blue error screen. It stated "Recovery

It gives me three options at the bottom [press enter to try again, press f8 for startup settings, press esc for uefi firmware settings]. If I press enter I get the same screen just with a bit more text. f8 does nothing. Uefi takes me to the boot menu. I have been trying to boot from a dvd r with a flash operating system in order to recover my data before it is reformatted. However, it does not seem to recognize the disc. When I select to boot from dvd rom, it tries, then on the black screen appears text saying restart and select boot device or install boot media and press a key. I tried taking disc out and putting bavk in, then pressing a key, nothing, same message. Please help.

My laptop randomly started getting this error on windows startup. It says "your PC encountered an error and needs to restart." But it doesn't restart. It says it's "preparing to repair" (or something along those lines) then the screen goes black and stays like that for hours. I can't create a boot disc or flash drive as I have no other PC available.
Note: I can't launch BIOS because it doesn't display what key to press.. I've been trying f1, f2 and delete, as well as some others. Nothing has worked.

guys,
I cloned a previous hdd that had startup problems to a new hdd b'cos of bad sectors. They new hdd did not work either so I did a clean install afterwards. during the clean install, the installation will not let me delete a small partition (1.44GB) that was supposedly reserved by the system (I found out later that this probably have some boot info -the result of my previous cloning).
Now my issue after the clean is that an "Boot failed..." error message appears just before Windows starts. I cannot even pause it to read all the message b'cos it's so fast. Nevertheless, Windows starts alright and I am able to do everything afterwards. How do I clear this message? When I deleted this small partition, windows failed to start so I restored it. I have attached an image of the disk partition. Thank you.

A:Boot Failed error at windows 7 startup

It's your original OEM REcovery partition which likely won't run after reinstall but you can try queuing it up from boot using the key given on first screen to see.

But since you probably have no need for it anyway, it would normally be deleted during install using the Custom install>Drive Options shown in Step 7 of Clean Install Windows 7.

Your current config has no System flag which is likely fatal. If you try to repair it with the Active flag on Recovery partition you may have problems. I would try to Mark C Partition Active and run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts with System Active flags on C.

If this won't work then you can try running the 3 repairs with Active flag on Recovery, but I would instead reinstall to finally get rid of that and all other partitions during Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

If it starts with System flag on C and you want to recover the Recovery space use Partition Wizard bootable CD to Delete it then resize C to the left as shown in Partition Wizard boot CD Resize Partition - Video Help.

Hey everyone,

Here is some background. I recently did a fresh install windows 7 home premium 64 bit on my machine using a 500gb Seagate HDD. The problem I am encountering is when I restart the computer, for necessary program restarts when installing new software, I get the "select proper boot device error" on the fresh install of Windows 7 that I just completed. How am I getting this error using a brand new hard drive with a fresh install of windows? This is very confusing.

I am installing windows again to see if I encounter the same error.

Edit 1: Alrighty this thread http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...e-problem.html saved me so much time and effort.

Learned a lot about dual and multiboot systems and realized that was the problem. I had a previous version of windows 7 on an old drive that was still plugged into the mobo. Needless to say my "fresh" install of windows was sharing boot files with the other version of windows 7 on a different drive. Needless to say anything affecting either drive caused the system not being able to boot.

Simply removed the drive, did a fresh install on the new seagate, and problem solved. I'll be monitoring the situation to see if anything new develops, but for now I seem to have figured it out.

Hey Win7 forums,

Recently, my computer has been freezing while doing various things (games, web browsing, whatever.) The computer will sotp responding for a few seconds, then the screen will turn black, and after another 5 seconds, it will turn on again with a popup "AMD display driver has successfully recovered from a crash"

Now, after doing this once or twice, the computer will BSOD, with the error "ATIKMPAG.SYS"

I am completely unable to turn the computer on, as it BSOD's on startup, and then repeats its self-booting cycle.

I've updated the BIOS, (that bricked the whole thing, so i took out the BIOS battery and reset it)
I've made sure all Windows updates are installed.
I've tried MANY different driver versions. 12.10, 13.1, 13.4 beta, etc. The weirdest thing is, the last time I had updated was months ago and it was working just fine, and it was the most recent update, and then all of a sudden this starts to happen.

I've also thoroughly googled it and tried what it's suggested but that hasn't worked.

I don't know what else to try. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Error: ATIKMPAG.SYS. Bsod on startup, unable to successfully boot.

Can you boot into Safe Mode ?
If you can, Uninstall The elements of ATI/AMD display driver (including the Catalyst Control Center) from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling to free up the leftovers. Now install another version of the display driver and observe the situation. Is it just the same? If so, it is nothing but a failing GPU. Change the GPU. In the mean time use the onboard graphics.

Okay guys, this has me stumped.

I'm fixing a computer (Toshiba Satellite L500) for a friend because he uses Frostwire, he accidentally downloaded a hidden virus and it fried his HDD basically.

So the only option was to do a fully factory reset as this is an older Toshiba system and they didn't supply any restore disks -.-

So i into the Windows 7 restore wizard and it asks for an admin password, and i know what all the passwords are because i set up the computer for this bloke, so i call him up and he agrees that he's not changed any passwords so it must be this ridiculous virus screwing about.

I managed to get around this by a direct recovery to Windows Vista through a disk, installed vista and everything was going smooth. obviously there were not drivers installed but no need because i should now be able to restore the original windows 7 system through the hidden recovery partition on the HDD.

And i did, i went through everything fine, no admin passwords needed, then halfway through the Windows 7 recovery, it fails saying there is an error in the HDD...

I try to restore again and it prompts the message no bootloder. Then i try to recover to vista through disk, gets halfway through this installation and then fails...

Now it wont boot to anything (even a recovery) and prompts the message F2-F200-0002...

A bit of digging said this can be solved by holding 0 on boot-up, but 'no it can't' in this case.

Don't have recovery disks...

A few suggestions, you have probably already done most of this...Did you use a different SATA cable when trying a different port?Was the other SATA port you tried a red one (1,2,5 or 6)? If i'm looking at the right manual there are some black ports that can't boot.Did you try changing the drive's power cable as well?Are you on the latest BIOS version? Not very likely to help but might be worth checkingIf you go into SATA Configuration in the Main page of the BIOS is SATA Configuration set to Compatible or Enhanced and is Configure SATA as set to IDE or AHCI (I think this option only shows up when the first option is enhanced but its not very clear). AHCI is the more modern version that didn't work with older operating systems, it will work with Windows 7 but normally it is recommended to install with it enabled rather than doing it later. If it isn't already AHCI and you want to try that option you would need to follow the instructions here first - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976In the same place there is also meant to be an option SATA Detect Time Out, it may be worth increasing this if possible as maybe the drive isn't always ready in timeIt could still be a problem with the drive even though it passes the tests, if you have a spare drive you could try cloning the whole boot drive to it and see if it works any better. True Image is easy to use but im not sure the trial version will do it, or clonezilla is free and a bit more complicated.

Are you by chance running a modified Kernel (ie a non original MS OS)?

ntkrlstaforce.exe isnt a "standard" OS file?


"from a malware blog site"
you're using a modified kernel (NTKRLSTAFORCE.EXE). That's not supported by anyone. Since all kaspersky versions provide extended protection with deep ties into the kernel, expect it won't work.
so basically, if you're using a modified kernel:
-if it works: good for you
-if it doesn't: s***s for you

Hi to all,

Around 5 days ago, some sort of error, cropped up while installation of Kaspersky Anti Virus on my laptop, and after that everytime, I turned the system on, I faced the blue screen error.

Then, i formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows XP. It was running fine for two days. Suddenly, it started giving error "Logonui.exe application error" at startup displaying something similar to "The instruction at '0x0037149c' referenced memory" something.. It had to buttons - Cancel (for debugging) and Ok.. I pressed cancel/ok/close button. It always cropped up. Until after a series of pressing buttons, my log on screen came. After logging in, all my icons and taskbar gone. So, i opened Windows Task Manager and run "explorer.exe". After everything came up, Some Data Execution Prevention error cropped up. Whenever i tried clicking "Close Message", it always came up again with a separate window for the "Send Error Report to Microsoft" dialog box.

Whenever I connected to internet, the link under my Internet started blinking very fast. I even left it without any internet application open, but it still went on. I saw the properties window of my connection. It went on and on. And in return, everything went slow. Internet surfing and downloading. And one major problem occurred that, whenever I leave my internet open for a short while, it shows the blue screen of error and restarts.

My sister's PC had been corrupted in lots of unnecessary programs and apps.
I deleted those craps. Windows Action Center then prompts me to update my windows, and I did.
PC restarted and POOF!!!, I am seem to be forever stuck in the Startup Repair Loop.
So I tried System Restore, but it's giving me the error code stated above (error 0x80070003).
I also tried System Image Recovery, and it's not also of help. Also, checking Hardware Options didn't help.
Lastly, I tried the Command Prompt option and it gives me nothing.

So how can I possible fix this error? ((

This is a family member's laptop. It is a Dell Inspirion N4110 running Win 7 Home Premium x64
They gave it to me complaining that the shutdown button restarts the computer and will not actually shut it down.
So I checked its preferences, they were fine. I went into the registry and changed the value from 1 to 0. That didn't work. (I changed it back)

I noticed on start up there is an error (it still pops up) that says there was a problem starting c:\users\blah\AppData\Roaming\homsp.dll The specified module could not be found.

The I decided to run a virus scan. Their McAfee had expired so I uninstalled it along with some odd software from a company called SysTweak or something and installed AVG and Malware Bytes. Those full scans came back clean except AVG found something and removed it but it wasn't of any significance to this issue.

I decided to check Windows Update, it wouldn't run. So I tried to restart it in Services and it wasn't there. After some piddling I found a program that supposedly fixed the problem for you. It was called Fix WU. I got it Softpedia. After running it the Windows Update service was back. I was able to install some updates and thought all was well. Then there were more updates. I tried to install them and got an error 80246008.

I'm in no way a expert on such things but I did notice something you found.
SysTweak

Their is no way of knowing all the things a program like that has done. If I had to repair this computer I would start with a repair install.

Give this a good read.

Repair Install

Then I would install MSE for a anti virus and use the built in Windows Firewall.

Little note: If you didn't use McAfee's online removal tool their could of been left overs of McAfee on the computer when you installed AVG and that would be just more problems.
Any anti virus program you remove I recommend using their own removal tool found online.

Hello,

I am in quite a dilemma with my current computer. I have recently purchased a new computer chassis which I transferred all my components to with no new additions.

On startup I was being sent to the Marvell Adapter 98xx which I had never encountered when my components were in my original case. The adapter was saying:

Virtual Drives: None Detected!

Physical Drives: Patriot Inferno SSD (which already has windows installed on it)
Western Digital HDD

It would then proceed to another black screen saying please select proper boot device etc etc.

I have since tried all the different SATA configurations, IDE, AHCI, and RAID. I tried all of these with the Marvell Adapter both on and off. I have tried all of the modes with both drives in each combination possible (SSD in 6Gb port/HDD in 3Gb port , SSD in 3Gb port/HDD in 6Gb port, SSD & HDD in 3Gb port, and the original SSD & HDD in 6Gb port)

I have reset the CMOS in a hope that It may resolve the issue, I have also pressed F8 (boot menu) and selected the SSD directly for startup considering it has windows installed on it.

Originally when the issue started I was able to enter the Marvell adapter and I created a virtual drive with both of my drives. This still resulted in me being sent to the "Please select proper boot device screen" and so I deleted that virtual drive.

In conclusion I have run out of ideas and I am stumped as to what I should do (as I have found similar sce... Read more

Hey again to anyone viewing the thread. I have found out what the issue / resolution was.

In the end I just booted with the windows 7 disk in the dvd drive which enabled me to get past the error and into system repair. The issue in the end was a corrupt MBR section in the 1TB HDD. The system repair removed the corruption and removed the partition.

After that I was able to start up my computer like usual but the HDD had lost its info. Luckily with the program "EASEUS partition recovery" I was able to retrieve the lost data that was originally on my drive as system repair only removed the data instead of deleting it.

Hey guys

Quick summary, the installation of Norton SystemWorks froze on my comp when i was instaling it, so i cancelled it and pretty much forgot about it. When i rebooted a few days later Windows wouldnt load.

I did some reading (correct me if i'm wrong) and i found out it was becasue of Norton GoBack ( i didnt even want it on my system in teh first place). It alters your boot files and i'm guessing when it froze it was in the prosses of changing those files.

So far i've tried everthing I could and had no luck fixing it.
I tried the NOrton fix (A file that unInstalles go back from dos) but it didnt work since the installation was not complete in the first place.

I tried plugging it onto another system as a Slave but it doesnt even show up : /

Heres the big problem i ran into;

hi, you say it does not recognise the system recovery disk, have you accessed the BIOS, by pressing f1, f10, f10 or del then go to boot order and make sure the cd is booting first then the hard drive. Also in the bios check if the cd-ROM is detected.
Is it possible to access safemode through f8? or can you only choose the two options displayed?
I think it might be that your hard drive is failing,
Also make sure the BIOS setup doesn't inhibit wrting to the boot sector
Check this to see if the hard drive is failing.

The story begins yesterday (around 2 pm) after my screens just went black. I sat there for a while and waited before just turning the computer off and restarting it. It booted back up just fine and so i decided to run my AVG PC tune up to check for any errors, and it came back with "You have not run DSKCHK in over 5 months." So through AVG PC Tune Up I selected thorough scan and hit OK. It told me i needed to restart the computer to begin the test so i hit OK to restart, but it didnt. I proceeded to put my computer into Turbo mode for no real reason what so ever, and then i restarted the computer. It booted up into the DSKCHK scan and i let it run.
