    Cloned SSD will not boot, shows winload.exe error 0xc000000e


    I cloned my HDD to a SSD, when booting up, i get a winload.exe error 0xc000000e. I tried recloning 3 times using Macrium Reflect free and Acronis, same error. I also try plugging my SSD into the same SATA slot and playing around with the boot order, same thing.

    In the past i cloned HDD to HDD using the same software and I don't remember running into this issue.

    any1 have a clue?

    Please see page 343 onwards
    https://updates.macrium.com/reflect/...user_guide.pdf

    If you are sure you have cloned the whole of the drive and therefore have the same partitions as on the original hdd - the efi fat partition from which the boot is commenced - then I recommend the use of the Macrium WinPE rescue environment

    You make this WinPE if you have not already done so as here - from the same guide link as above - please see page 300

    So return the original drive the HDD to the computer - take out the cloned SSD
    make the USB WinPE rescue install

    Take out the HDD - replace the coned SSD in the same SATA port.
    Boot from the rescue environment and follow the procedure to repair the boot.

    The most likely cause is the problem of the boot files.

    Have you compared the cloned SSD partitions to the partitions on the HDD to ensure they are the same, apart from the total capacity difference.

    Was Windows 10 on the HDD installed on UEFI firmware with GPT partitioning of the drive - or was it by any chance legacy mode on MBR
    and is it a dual boot
    OS: Win10 Enterprise x64 & Win 7 Home x64

    even if 10 is on one of the WD HDD and 7 on the other, and you have only cloned the 10

    Have you compared the cloned SSD partitions to the partitions on the HDD to ensure they are the same, apart from the total capacity difference. - yes I have they are the same/in the same spot. But my SSD does have some unallocated space.

    Was Windows 10 on the HDD installed on UEFI firmware with GPT partitioning of the drive - or was it by any chance legacy mode on MBR - I used MBR because Windows 7 does not support GPT i heard and my bio does not support UEFI. Windows 10 was installed on 1 HDD and Windows 7 was installed another HDD. I only cloned the Windows 10 portion because i'm not taking out the Windows 7 HDD from my pc, only the old Windows 10 HDD.

    if it matters, I originally installed Windows 7 first then install Windows 10 for dual boot, so I believe the bootloader or something relies on my Windows 7 partition, I don't think my Windows 10 SSD/HDD can boot without that partition unless I uninstall Windows 7 and do clean install of Windows 10 only.


    One thing i noticed that for winload.exe, i check both my Windows 10 SSD and HDD, i don't have the winload.exe file in that destination. But I do for Windows 7 HDD.

    I tried those steps, some wasn't applicable to my computer and some didn't work. For example, when i did bootrec /fixboot . I get access is denied. I restarted my computer anyways to try, I no longer get the winload.exe error 0xc000000e, but I get something new: computer black screen with constant loading circle.

    I guess worse case scenario, i try reinstalling my Windows 10 on my SSD.

    The answer is to run the macrium rescue environment, that with your dual boot situation will on repair boot - as I linked you to the page - sort your problem out.

    That of course presumes that your present clone is on Macrium
    The only change to what I posted before is that you use the repair boot explained on page 341 onwards - MBR system

    i followed your guide, after a few tries I am able to successfully boot into my Windows 10 SSD and Windows 7. However, I lost my bootloader screen when I choose which OS to boot to (I have to go into my bios to select which drive to boot manually), it also created a system reserved partition on my Windows 7 HDD which i never had/seen before when I go into my computer, and it changed my drive letters.


    EDIT: was able to hide the system reserved partition in Disk Management and renamed my drive letter.

    Well it usually works perfectly
    Can you now boot into 10 if so and you still have the original install on the HDD then try this
    You boot into 10
    you then open a cmd prompt with admin rights
    you then issue these cmds

    bcdedit /export c:\oldstore
    bcdedit /createstore c:\emptystore
    bcdedit /import c:\emptystore /clean
    bcdboot c:\windows

    that presumes that in 10 the drive is shown as C
    remember that on a dual boot when you boot in 10 the drive letter is shown as C for instance and windows 7 is on another drive letter, but then when you boot into 7 - that is shown as C and 10 is on a different letter

    For instance on this computer 10 when I am booted into it is C and 7 is D
    but when in 7 the letters change
    So in 10 open This Computer and check what letter is shown for 7
    you then add the cmd

    bcdboot e:\Windows
    or as I said whatever letter is 7 whilst booted into 10

    Then exit out of cmd prompt and reboot

    Sometimes the boot timeout is set to zero in msconfig so you don't get the boot options.

    are these commands supposed to fix the bootloader screen not showing both my Win 7 and 10?

    I don't have that anymore for either win 7 or 10. in Win 10, it only shows 10. when i'm on win 7, it only shows 7. for example:

    Yes they will do
    so to repeat in case you need it
    you boot into 10
    you check the drive letter allocated to 10 -on my example C
    you open File explorer - this computer and check the drive letter allocated to 7
    you the use the cmds listed
    changing the drive letters as necessary
    So if in 10 - the drive letter for 10 is C and the drive letter for 7 is E then the cmds are as shown
