0xe0ef001 = open file error

 

This usually means a problem with the hard drive or the restore discs (if you are using discs)

 

Test the hard drive.

Re: how do i fix error code 0xe0ef0001?

hi there

i think i solved this problem and here is the solution

first you must know there is many reasond to get this error

1-dvd's could be scratched

2-dvd rom could be corrupted

3- or you had a problem in your hard disk drive(propably it could be a MBR problem)

by the way MBR means Master Boot Record of the hard disk drive

so

we need to erase or reset the Mbr

 

follow these steps

 

1-download and burn hiren's boot cd

2-back up your data if necessary >>>if your windows was totally corrupted you can use mini xp from hiren

3-boot from cd

4-choose dos programs

5-choose mbr tools

6-choose mbr work utility

7-reset EMBR by pressing Num 3 and confirm

8-reset Mbr by pressing Num 4 and confirm you will get a warning that the hard disk will need to re partitioned

9-press E to exit

10-now you can try your clean dvd's to make a recovery process

 

Best of luck

and i realy made and it works 100%

hope it helps all of you
