windows\system32\winload.exe is missing or corrupt RRS feed

  • Question

  • Help!!

    I've read the posts on this page but nothing has worked. I've tried the factory reinstall disks, but the message is still the same "windows\system32\winload. exe is missing or corrupt" with a status "0xc000000f". One thing I will mention is , my brother in law did the first attempt at the Vista reinstall and has told me that he deleted the partitions on the harddrive (so there is no info on this drive).

    I really need the laptop up and running, so please help.
