Winload.efi is missing or corrupted! Please help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I have recently been unhappy with the performance of my PC so I just decided I would wipe the hard drive and start over again. But when I was going through the process it gave me this error:


    Your PC needs to be repaired

    The application or operating system could not be used because of the following errors:

    File: \windows\system32\winload.efi   is missing or corrupt

    Error code: 0xc0000001

    After doing all the suggested things nothing had worked. I then proceeded to do what I can and know to fix this and have gotten no results.

    Here are some things about my PC you probably should know:

    Manufacturer: Toshiba

    Model: Satellite C855D-S5900

    Processor: AMD E-300 APut with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.30 GHz

    Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB

    System Type: 64-bit Windows 8.1

    And also no external or internal changes were made to my PC except at one point I had a RAT but I removed it.

    Thanks for your time and concern!
