winload.exe file missing or corrupt
I started my computer and the following error code came up right after boot:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the
cause. . .

File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Status:0xc000000f
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is
missing or corrupt.



The only thing that I did was install the new Windows Updates that they
provided the night before. I cannot get into windows or system restore or
'revert to previous configuration' and I have tried to boot off of my
Windows Vista DVD but it will not let me.
Hopefully someone can help me.

<BabbleFish translation>
After to have already installed Mac OS X on my portable one (in dual boot
with Windows Vista and Fedora 8) and having under way Seen Windows in order
to control that all it was working, I have found a rather strange error.
Just I have received the message that follows: " (winload.exe error)
-----
<answer>
It releases the hunting to the problem. After a P˛ of googolare and some
test with some live-disk gnu/linux, the problem comes found in one absence
of the flag of boot of the partition windows united to a wrong settaggio of
the archives of configuration of the bootloader of windows. As far as the
reactivation of the flag of boot the roads they are multiple:
....
Diskpart way { - you start the disc of installation of Seen Windows; -
selected the information for localization; - you start the restoration
procedure; - you start the prompt of the commandos; -
"DISKPART list disk";
- "DISKPART select disk n";
- "DISKPART list partition";
- "DISKPART select partition n";
- "active DISKPART";
- "riavviate DISKPART
exit" and. }
To this point it does not remain that to correct the archives of
configuration of the bootloader of windows: - you start the disc of
installation of Seen Windows; - selected the information for localization; -
you start the restoration procedure; - you start the prompt of the
commandos; - "bcdedit.exe /enum" in order to visualize the running
archives; - "bcdedit.exe /set {default} device partition=C:" in place of
"C:" inserted your partition windows; - "bcdedit.exe /set {default} osdevice
partition=C:" in place of "C:" inserted your partition windows; - riavviate.
Seen Windows hour would have to be started without some problem.

Re: winload.exe file missing or corrupt
Booting from the DVD works fine, but who do we talk to in order to get the
problem fixed? If the error only occurs when updates are installed, then
there has to be some corruption in the update. I have turned off Windows
Update until Microsfot finds a solution...

Re: winload.exe file missing or corrupt
I will be disabling Windows Update until a resolution is found. It appears
that my Pc runs fine until after I install the latest Updates. I can restore
from the DVD with no problem, but it's a hassle to have to do so after
Microsoft Updates

Re: winload.exe file missing or corrupt
This is seriously messed up as I have had to do this twice in the last week
now. After the first time it happened I had to do a complete rebuild of my
main PC as I could not get any of the repair options to work on the install
DVD.

I have now installed both 32bit Vista Home Premium & Ultimate as I am
totally fed up with this on 2 different HD's as this way if one goes down
you can boot the other OS to copy the file across (after a lot of wrangling
with security etc etc).

Definately broken after an update from MS last week. Sorry do not know which
one but suspect it may have been the one which is supposed to help MS detect
illegal copies of Vista (and yes both my copies are fully legal and
activated).

You guys need to look into this

Re: winload.exe file missing or corrupt
Updated to say that instead of copying the winload.exe over again I tried to
do a disk check on the volume instead from my other Vista install and that
has fixed it so looks like an issue with Vista either not caching this file
properly or the update has broken it by being too draconian in thinking that
if you have a dual boot vista system it is not legal!

Re: winload.exe file missing or corrupt
I have the exact same problem and unfortunately I have had to resort to the
same solution.. I have disabled auto-update until a solution is found..
