    Hello, I am just a casual "gamer", but I came across to a booting error.
    File:\\Windows\system32\winload.efi
    Error code:0xc000000f
    If I could get any help regarding this error that would be much appreciated. Sorry if I made any mistakes english is not my main language.
    If you need any extra information about the computer tell me.

    First of all, no one other than you has any idea what hardware you are running. It would help if you posted ALL of your exact system specs. If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, post the exact brand, model# and service tag# Remember you are posting in a hardware forum; posting the type of hardware is pretty much a given.

    From the error you posted, the efi partition on the hard drive has become corrupt and or the drive itself is failing. You can try and repair the boot files using a windows install usb however the very first thing I would do would be to pull the drive and copy anything important ie docs, pics, etc. Once the data is safe, you can attempt to repair and or replace the drive.

    The other thread was closed as a duplicate Chuck so I moved your post here to the original thread.
