0xc000025 - Trying Recovery System via Recovery Manager: Windows failed to start.

Name: Pavilion dv4-2161nr

Prod. Number: WA691UA#ABA

Windows 7  64-bit

 

  I splitted original Hard Disk Partition in three partitions.  I formatted those two not containing O.S.  Now I want to format the partition containing the O.S.

  1)  If I choose "Recovery System", will it format all three partitions?  Or will it format the partition I choose to?

  2)  I tryed "Recovery System", but it failed.  What can I do?

     2.1)  I made Recovery DVDs when first used the PC.  It loads but it never runs.  It's like theres no AutoRun, and there's no ".exe" to execute when I open the first DVD Recovery via Windows Explorer.  What am I missing?

     2.2)  I tryed Recovery System via Recovery Manager.  System shuts down and starts reiniciating but it gives the following message "Windows Boot Manger: Windows failed to start.  A recent hardware of software change might be the problem.  Status: 0xc000025.  The boot selection failed because a required device is inacessible".  What can I do?

 

     Regards,

     Rafael.

Boot from the first recovery disc to start recovery, it is a bootable disc.

 

Yes recovery may have a minimized recovery option, from what I have heard it only writes toi the C drive.

Re: 0xc000025 - Trying Recovery System via Recovery Manager: Windows failed to start.

Thanks once again, Mumbodog.

 

1) I booted from DVD. 

     a)  I tryed Recovery System from disc and it failed: something about Image. 

     b)  I tryed Recovery System from hard drive and it failed: black screen for 6 hours.

     c)  I tryed Factory Reset.  "Reformatting the Windows partition of your had disk drive" began but it stopped at 23%.  I tryed it again and it stopped at 23%.

 

Any guess?  What can we do?

Test the hard drive then the memory modules, post back the results.

Re: 0xc000025 - Trying Recovery System via Recovery Manager: Windows failed to start.

I tested the Hard Drive and it passed 100% ok.

I tested the Memory and it passed 100% ok.

 

My PC runs a Win 7 Home Premium.

I've just run a Win 7 Ultimate CD Installation.  It formatted the System Partition, but I couldn't get Win 7 installed because when I filled in my Product Key it said the Product Key wasn't right.  Is it because Product Key for Win 7 Home Premium wouldn't work on a Win 7 Ultimate installation?

 

I hoped the Hard Drive would be ok after it had been formatted while I tryed Win 7 Ultimate installation.  So I tryed once again to boot with HP Recovery Disc.  It stopped at 23% once again.  Until 23% there are all noises that get me thinking PC is running ok.  When it get up to 23% all noises just stop.

 

Any ideias?

 

And thanks once again.

Rafael.

Yes, the keys are specific to the version.

 

Only thing I can suggest is to use DBAN to nuke the disk, then use the recovery DVD's to attempt recovery install.
