Hello Everyone,
I have a problem where I turn on my pc and get error code 0xc0000225. It's and Acer desktop I bought July (2013) for a little B-Day present :D. But now it stopped working. I can't take it to a repair shop because
1. I'm not a fan of them
2. They tend to take like a week :I
I need it soon I'm only using my other laptop. I make like intro/outro's for people and I have one person who asked me a week ago which I feel bad about. Plus all my school work is on there and my dad also has his job documents nothing can be erased on there.
Thanks for your time,
Heshanth:)

Step 1: Start from your installation or recovery CD.

To do this you will probably need to press a key before you boot, this will most likely be something like F12. for more information about booting from cd look here. (link: Start Windows from a CD or DVD )

Step 2: Choose the correct recovery options. (gallery)

Click on “Repair your computer”
Click on “Troubleshoot”
Click on “Command Prompt”
Click on “Advanced Options”




Step 3: Enter the correct commands.


  1. Diskpart
  2. List volume
  3. Select volume=2 (replace “2″ with the number that is associated with the “ESP” label)
  4. assign letter=Z
  5. exit
  6. bcdboot C:\windows /s Z: /f UEFI (replace C: with the volume letter that is named “OS”)

If that's really the case, then just download the floppy version of the storage driver from your motherboard site and have it ready on USB or optical disc, extracted from the .zip.

Also, check bios about AHCI or IDE mode being the same for Windows as when you installed it.
