Greetings TSG people! Today, after a crash while using MS Paint I've got black screen before loading Windows that says: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause... File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occured while trying to read the configuration data.
I have no Win7 dvd, but I have Windows Repair Disc in my USB Flash. From the menu I tried "Startup repair", but it told that "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".
I tried a solution from the web to use /FixMbr , /FixBoot and /RebuildBcd (Bootrec.exe) by command prompt, even though it gave no results.
I had this problem four times and I used System Image Recovery, but it loses all data after image date and I really don't want to do this again! I am really tired and desperate, please help me to find the right solution to get pass this error! I tried many websites and no luck there, so please, don't send me links "where to go", but help me practically.
Excuse me for any gramatical mistakes, I'm using iPhone.

Sincerely, tomzzz

Today, after numerous site visits and experiments with command prompt - received new error. File:\Windows\System32\config\system Status: 0xc000014c Says that system registry file is missing or corrupt.

What now ?
