How do I fix error code 0xc000000f?

Error 0xc000000f appeared when I tried to boot my PC (Windows 10). The error screen says that the system failed to start normally. Tips?

Solution

Typically, the 0xc000000f error is caused by corrupted Windows boot configuration files. To fix this issue you’ll need to have a Windows Installation Media and a bit of patience.

Once you have WIM, do the following steps:

  • boot from the installation media;
  • press SHIFT+F10 to bring up the command line;
  • execute in the console:
    • diskpart
    • list volume

Check the system volume letter (usually it’s C).

    • exit
    • chkdsk C: /f
    • sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ /OFFWINDIR=C:\Windows
    • bcdboot C:\Windows\

That’s it, the Windows loader should be restored.
