hello...this is where my nightmare begins. I turned on my pc, and it would not let me get past start up, saying
file :\Windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe
status : 0xc00000e9 Info:
Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing, or corrupt

I tried a few things, mostly the startup repair option that it would (recommend) to me next to the start windows normally option. this did absolutely NOTHING, and the problem continued. so I said ok, I give up, and decided to back up everything and completely reformat and reinstall windows....I did this, it installed successfully so I was happy....then the real nightmare started.....IT DIDNT FIX THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!! I couldnt believe it...even after completely reformatting, I could not get past start up...the syste repair option still does nothing, even with the disc in...and im starting to lose all hope. tried reinstalling it a bunch of times....but now it wont even do that correct all the way through, keeps coming up with errors talking about files either missing or corrupt...so my pc is stuck in limbo...i wiiped partitions and tried again alot of times....but nothing...now it doesnt even recognize windows 7 as being installed at all.......SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!! :'(


also um....please read this before replying

Hi, I've just looked through the other thread you gave the link for and was suprised that only one person suggested it might be due to a failing hard drive.

Run the hard drive diagnostics from the manufacturer to make sure your hard drive is in good health. It seems to me that this is the most obvious reason for all the problems.

Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturer's diagnostics for ISO (CD) not the one for Windows.
When the download is complete right click the file and select Extract Here and burn the image to a CD.
In Windows 7 right click the extracted file, select Open With, then select Windows Disc Image Burning Tool then follow the prompts. For all other versions of windows (if you do not have an ISO burner) download this free software. isoimageburner
Boot the PC into the Bios setup and set the CD/DVD drive to 1st in the boot sequence. Insert the disk in the drive then reboot and the disc will load into dos.
Excelstore
Hitachi/IBM
Samsung
Seagate, Maxtor & Quantum
Western Digital
Toshiba/Fujitsu
If you have a Toshiba/Fujitsu hard drive I would suggest the use of the diagnostics from the Seagate link as this will work on all makes of drive and on any OS.

wow I must be really screwed. downloaded and burned to CD the one I needed from WD, and ran the quick scan from boot. this almost auotomatically failed, then asked if I wanted to do a full media scan so i said yes.....took a break, watched the final episode of Lost (which i think could have been better) and came back to check on it and it literally just says

Too many errors found - please contact technical support error / status code: 0225

is there anything else i can possibly do?
