    hi, i have red this thread and i followed the correct steps installing windows 7 on to usb and implemeting it on UEFI zotac barebone pc, when i boot from usb i get error: "an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data 0xc000000d" I attached screenshot.

    I also tried using this tool Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way but end up getting same error.

    Hello Vadimo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I don't see a screenshot attached in your post
    Is that a 64-bit or 32-bit Windows 7 you are using?

    It will only work with a 64-bit Windows 7.

    As a test, see if you are able to boot from the UEFI USB on another 64-bit UEFI PC that has no issues with booting to Windows.

    If not, then there's an issue with the USB, and may need to recreate it.

    If so, then there may be an issue the hard drive.

    Excellent. I think now it is clear what you get at the end. Thanks for changing it.

    No problem. You have helped me out so often, so it's normal that I do the same for you.

    How do I check whether I correctly installed Windows 8 in UEFI or not? Is it from Disk Management or other way?

    By the way, look at my partition. Are there problems?
