    Windows suddenly wont boot, error code 0000001 and 0000225

    So today I restarted my PC and suddenly windows gives error 0xc0000001 after the windows logo has been there for a while. I had a backup from the morning so I recover it, and now it gives error 0x0000225 inmediately after BIOS screen. I read this:

    BSOD 0xc0000225, 0xc000000e, Missing Winload.efi After Copy Or Migration › Knowledge Base

    And do the reparations (aparently frequent after a backup restore). But the same happens, after a while I get code 1 or 98 or 225...

    It seems like a problem with the boot right? I had to format a couple of months ago and I definetely DONT want to go through installing and configuring my stuff all over again.

    Please help me out, because I'm starting to panic...

    Use a windows 10 iso build 1803 >
    (Start with startup repair > if startup repair fails > report into the thread whether it did or did not create a srttrail.txt
    (Next system restore > start with the oldest system restore point and keep repeat to the newest restore point > if system restore fails or if there are not restore points advance to the next step)

    For all of these commands please use a camera or smartphone camera to take pictures and post images into the thread:

    Open command prompt with title bar: Administrator: X:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe and prompt: X:\Sources>

    Type these commands. Comments will be in parenthesis.

    1) bcdedit /enum
    2) bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    3) C:
    4) dir
    5) D:
    6) dir
    7) E:
    8) dir
    9) (Look for the partition drive letter in step #2 and the windows drive in dir results for the drive letters) (The windows drive typically displays: perflogs, program files, program files (x86), users, windows, etc) (The drive letters most of the time are the same for the boot partition and the windows drive) (This drive letter will be used in multiple steps) (Choose the drive letter for the next step, for example B: )
    10) B: (change B: to the applicable drive letter)
    11) cd \windows\system32\config
    12) dir
    (It should display similar to : bbi, bcd-template, components, default, drivers, elam, sam, security, software, system, vsmidk, journal, regback, systemprofile txr, etc.)
    13) cd..
    14) cd..
    15) cd..
    16) x:
    17) diskpart
    18) list disk
    19) list volume
    20) select disk 0
    21) detail disk
    22) list partition
    23) select partition 1
    24) detail partition
    25) select partition 2
    26) detail partition
    27) select partition 3
    28) detail partition
    29) select partition 4
    30) detail partition
    31) select partition 5
    32) detail partition
    33) (If there are any more partitions then continue in the same fashion with select and detail)
    34) select disk 1
    35) detail disk
    36) list partition
    37) chkdsk /r B: (change the drive letter B: to the applicable drive letter seen in step #2)
    38) (This may take many hours and typically displays ETA)
    39) (reboot as necessary to run the command and reboot after the command has completed to recheck the boot)
    40) (reopen command prompt)
    41) sfc /scannow /offbootdir=B:\ /offwindir=B:\windows (change the drive letters B: to the applicable drive letters)
    (this may take a while to run)
    42) (reboot and check the boot)
    43) (reopen command prompt)
    44) bootrec /fixmbr
    45) bootrec /fixboot
    46) bootrec /scanos
    47) bootrec /rebuildbcd
    48) (reboot and check the boot)
    49) (Please make sure to take pictures and post images of all commands and results )

    Startup repair fails, srtTrail.log (or txt) only says bootres.dll is damaged or corrupted.

    I have no restore points.

    My typical C windows drive is D in recovery environment.

    Using list volume in diskpart the only flag seems to be for the EFI partition, and it's flagged as hidden.

    Chkdsk returns ok, no problems.

    sfc founds no problems.

    Fixmbr command runs well, scanos returns 0 found, and fixboot returns with access denied (maybe that's the problem?).

    Bcdedit /enum returns 2 entries, Windows Boot Manager (\EFI\MICROSOFT\BOOT\BOOTMGFW.EFI) and other pointing to my OS (d) with no description, and in en-us for some reason (my os is in spanish).

    bcdedit | find "osdevice" obviously returns partition=D:

    bootrec /rebuildbcd returns ok.

    Please post an image of:

    1) D:
    cd \windows\system32\config

    2) diskpart
    a) list disk
    b) list volume
    c) select disk 0
    d) list partition

    3) bcdedit /export D:\BCD_Backup
    cd boot
    attrib bcd -s -h -r
    ren D:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    bootrec /RebuildBcd

    4) If the above commands fail to fix the boot then make sure that there is only the D: drive connected to the computer and all other drives disconnected.

    type: bootsect /nt60 D:
    if the above command does not work then type: bootsect /nt60 all


    Bootsect Command-Line Options | Microsoft Docs

    If the above steps do not fix the boot the next plans are regback pending the image and/or replace the boot sector.

    Will catch up with you later in the day.

    I miraculously recovered my OS with another backup from last week. I guess for some reason the yesterday's one was corrupt.

    Thanks to all anyway!!
