    Issues with Dell XPS 18, Windows 8.1


    I recently tried dual boot of android and windows 8.1. I somehow managed to mess up the bootloader for windows and potentially the HDD partitions.
    Windows won't boot, giving the error code 0xc0000225.
    I ran a few "solutions" via google and have managed to change the error to 0xc000000f.
    Can anyone help?
    Can I attach photos to posts?

    Dell XPS 1810
    500gb HDD
    3gb RAM
    Windows 8.1 Home


    P.s. is there an app for this forum on android?

    I tied a few solutions and now I get the error 0xc000000f. Please someone help. I've tried everything to save this rig. What am I doing wrong?

    The partitions look correct for the XPS default, so I think you have screwed the boot path.
    If you have the original MS Windows DVD, boot with it and try the repair boot option.

    Alternatively, you could download and try to fix the path problem with Easybcd.
    Last resort, as I see it still there, would be to return the Computer to the Dell factory settings. That would mean a complete loss of all your private material.
