Hp pavilion 23-q149c
The computer says it needs to have recovery tools used such as a disk or USB stick. When I set this up originally I downloaded everything from the cloud. Now I can't get past this recovery it says "Recovery your PC/device needs to be repaired. The operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors you will need to use recovery tools if you don't have any installation media like a disk or USB device contact your PC administrator or PC device manufacturer.

IN this state , Your PC needs to be repaired

 

This error is received when a critical system file is missing or has become corrupted. It could also happen, when the Boot Configuration file BCD is missing some required information or has become corrupted. You can even see this message when you are upgrading to a higher version of Windows. The error codes mentioned, could vary from 0x0000098, 0xc000000f, 0xc0000034, 0xc0000225, 0xc000014C, etc. You can use the error code to find out the reason your computer will not work.

 

For instance here are what some of the the error codes stand for:

  1. 0xc000000f – An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data
  2. 0xc000014C – The Boot configuration data for your PC is missing or contains errors
  3. 0xc0000225 – Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible
  4. 0x0000098, 0xc0000034 – Boot Configuration Data file missing required information or does not contain a valid OS entry.

The error message will usually include the suggestion that you will need to use the recovery tools on your installation media like DVD or USB to repair and recover your Windows installation.

 

To fix such errors, make sure you disconnect all external devices before you commence. Then you will have to insert your installation DVD or connect your USB to your laptop, restart your computer, and boot from the CD, DVD or USB drive, and select Repair your computer. .

 

Next, select Troubleshoot. Select the Reset This PC option. This should normally resolve your issue. A Refresh or a Reset PCusually fixes this problem. Do note that using Reset PC option will delete your data, so we trust you have backed up your data.

Regarding this and entirely out of my curiosity:

 

I have very recently upgraded my SSD to a larger one. I changed the size of the OS partion, naturally, and tried to keep recovery partition unaltered, at the end of the disk.

 

Needless to say that despite recovery parition remaining on the SSD, test recovery attempt with F11 upon booting finishes with dreadful 0x0000225 error.

 

I am not concerned too much about it though, as:

 

  • I intend to keep old SSD unaltered
  • I have created recovery media already

 

And still, I was wondering whether there is anything I could do on the current (new) SSD to fix this situation (for completeness)?
