    windows failed to boot: error 0xc00000f


    i have a virus on my pc, which caused it to give me a boot error. i currently have windows 8 pro installed and have misplaced the install cd somewhere. i have a question about booting windows 8 pro x64 with windows 8.1 pro x64. will it work? will i be able to do a rescue operation? any advice would be gratefully appreciated. thanks

    Download "Who Crashed" from majorgeeks.com Then run it to tell you in plain English what and where the fault is. That error can be anything. You need to post the whole text from the Dump Log, what is going on.

    Thanks guys, although my question was still not answered. Will I be able to boot a win 8 pro using a win 8.1 install?

    Will I be able to run that even though my computer won't boot?

    You have to try and boot into safe mode, or put the drive in an external enclosure and use another computer to review the Dump Log on that drive.
