Windows 10: recovery from oxc000000e

    recovery from oxc000000e

    I made an image file of my hard drive, and used it to install everything on a second drive. If I have a hard drive failure, I can install the second drive and immediately have an operating computer.

    This approach worked fine. To keep the drive current. I put it in a external drive enclosure, and copied word documents, etc. , added a few files from scratch, and now the second drive is more current than the drive in the computer. It still worked ok when connected to my computer.

    I tested it again today, and have a oxc000000e error. I checked into making a startup repair USB, assuming I could make it using my normal hard drive, but I get the impression the repair USB would contain everything on my normal drive (word documents, pictures, etc.) I might as well create a new image file and use it, loosing data that was only on the second drive.

    Am I correct, or can I just make a win10 repair only USB? I put the second drive in the external drive enclosure and everything looks fine.

    What normally causes the oxc000000e problem? Maybe I need to unmount the drive instead of just turning off the external drive enclosure power.

    Hi, I'm not sure what you mean by a startup repair USB disk.

    Run Startup Repair in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials
    Startup Repair can be run
    a. from within a reasonably working Windows installation (which might seem a bit strange, I suppose)
    b. from the same set of options when booting from a bootable Win10 installation disk.

    Note too that Macrium Reflect (a disk imaging program) includes a quite comprehensive Fix Boot feature, also available when using its boot disk.

    Thanks for the useful information. It looks like I have boot sector problems, and I need to use the software to fix it.

    Regarding Macrum; I have been thinking of using it. I currently use Terabyte Image for Linux (works ok with win10), which works fine, but does not have the bells and whistles provided with Macrum. Terabyte had another app which allowed me to return to windows from Linux, but I don't remember how to use it. I tried Linux years ago, but prefer windows.

    I still wonder why I have 0XC000000e problems with the extra drives. Fortunately, I don't have it when using my C: drive.

    I'd try Macrium's Fix Boot first. You could also run a disk test just to be sure.

    I make no comment on the prime-expert software- it was the article content that seemed relevant. According to the article you'd need to buy that, which wasn't something I was specifically recommending.

    Problem solved

    The Prime-Expert Emergency Bootkit paid version works! Some steps were not clear to me, but the writer was obviously more of a technical person than a tech writer. It was well worth the $18. I have a number of drives which I can mount, and I have about 4-5 0xc000000e failures over a few years using them. Fortunately my normal C: drive has not been affected.

    Norton Security thinks it is a bad site, and I finally switched to Windows Defender and deleted Norton to download. However, Norton also thinks my amateur radio club's website is dangerous, which is totally wrong.

    Thanks for your suggestion.
