I’ve only seen the error “Windows error 0Xc000000f windows failed to boot, Windows\System32\winload.exe is corrupt or missing” once. From the reading I did found out I would need to run a repair on Windows. I went to here and downloaded the Vista repair iso.
- You will have to burn the cd and boot from it.
- Selected your language.
- At the bottom right (or was it left) I clicked the Repair option.
- Windows will do a quick scan then came back and say it found an issue with my startup files and asked if i wanted to repair and reboot.
- I chose ok and reboot was successful!
I hope this helps you with the “Windows error 0Xc000000f windows failed to boot, Windows\System32\winload.exe is corrupt or missing” error.
