    Windows recovery, missing/corrupt critical driver error 0xc000000d


    I upgraded my Toshiba laptop automatically from 8.1 to 10 when the software came out (months ago) - have had no issues with it.
    Then I was using my laptop it flashed blue and turned off. It now comes up with with recovery - your pc/device needs to be repaired (see image) - I'm able to access the recovery settings - have tried refresh, system restore, automatic repair, nothing works and seems to get worse. I've searched for the last day forums and most people seem to have boot/bcd errors and so don't work for this problem. I have a lot of personal files/photos that haven't been backed up for about a month and want to save them! Please help. I've downloaded the Windows 10 iso to a usb - but have only get semi regular access to a Mac so unsure if it's bootable. Any help would be greatly appreciated - sorry if this is the wrong place for the thread.

    First option.
    Try to get a live linux boot disk and boot from that to make a backup of the files you need.
    (Always have this option open to recover files in cases like these.
    You can try elementary OS or Ubuntu :
    Download elementary OS
    Get Ubuntu | Download | Ubuntu

    Once you get them, Follow instruction available, Make that into a USB, boot from it, Live save your files to where you need and then you can proceed with windows error fixing or clean install with out worries.
    Tool to make bootable linux usb :
    UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads

    You can also use the live disks to replace the missing/ corrupt file inside your windows directory.
