Dual Boot - Vista 64 / Win7 64 - Winload.exe Error

I have 3 hdd's.

1 x 160GB (SATA)
- Partition: ~149GB - Win Vista64

1 x 300GB (SATA)
- Partition: ~220GB - MISC
- Partition: ~58.5GB - Windows 7 64

1x 1TB (SATA)
- Partition: ~931GB - Games

I ended up taking my 300GB drive, created a logical partition, then booted into the Windows 7 dvd I have. (win 7 - 7100?, straight off ms)

Firstly, it takes about a couple minutes just to load the files. Then once it finally gets to the splash* screen and the cursor takes about 5-10minutes for the "install" window to appear which seems VERY odd since my machine is VERY fast. It takes quite a bit of time to accomplish installing from loading to finished (40minutes maybe)...

After everything installs when I go to choose the Windows 7 option on the boot menu, I get this black SOD
Windowssystem32winloader.exe error 0xc000000D
Something about the file being missing or corrupt.

I took my Windows 7 disk, and entered command prompt through recovery tools (which takes at least 5 minutes due to loading time to get to each time).
I ran DISKPART, then did LIST VOL, so it would tell me the partitions and letters.
Then I took another window, and entered bcdedit. The letters matched up with the partition letters and the file DOES exist.

I've tried 3 different sources on 3 different DVD's to see if perhaps I had a bad image (1 x microsoft/2 x torrent), but that's not the case.
I've tried setting the path's again through bcdedit to make sure there was no data corruption in the settings, and that was not successful either...

So when I need to figure is out why it tells me the file "winloader.exe" is missing or corrupt, when in fact it is pointing to the right harddrive, on the right partition, on the right location.

Yes, they all show up on the BIOS post, yes it recognizes the 300GB drive in the setup without extra drivers. The only hdd it needs extra drivers for to see is my 1TB, but I'm not using that for the Windows 7 installation.

Problem Dualboot Vista And 7 Winload.exe Error
I have installed on a second partition of my first hard disk seven (in a first partition I have vista). The first start of 7 goes well and I can see the desktop without any problem. Then I restart my pc to change the boot priority and set the hard disk as default. Then I restart again and I see the vista boot manager that ask me to select the os to start. When I select 7 I get an error that say:

FILE windowssystem32winload.exe

Status: 0xc0000428

info: windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.

(I think that is the english version of my error, the code match)

I try to repair the windows starup with the wizard on 7's dvd but it doesn't work. I unistall, reburn, reinstall 7 but the result was the same.

If I open (when I running vista) the property of winload in 7's directory I see that the digital signature of the item doesn't match.

Dual Boot Vista 64 / Win7 64
I've been going at this all day searching, trial and error, and it's all very frustrating at this point.

I use a custom bootloader for my vista 64 to trick it to be activated (not sure your policy on discussing this). But now I wanted to try Windows 7 since it has been released in the RC status (because I had aquaintances try 7000 beta, and no one liked it). So I want to have it on my machine to tinker with and test it out.

I ended up taking my 300GB drive, and removing about 60GB from it, creating a logical partition, formatting it, then booted into the Windows 7 dvd I have. (win 7 - 7600)

Firstly, it takes about a couple minutes just to load the files. Then once it finally gets to the splash* screen and the cursor takes about 5-10minutes for the "install" window to appear which seems VERY odd since my machine is VERY fast.

It takes quite a bit of time to accomplish installing from loading to finished (30minutes maybe), and by then it overwrites my bootloader for my VISTA installation (so its not activated anymore), and it shows WIN 7, and below that Vista 64. Read more at the forum...

Win7 And Vista Dual Boot, 2 Hard Drives
I have a laptop with 2 hard drives, one had vista Home Premium, one xp, I installed ultimate on one drive, and wanted to get my pc to where I could boot each drive independently. I succeeded, so I recently bought windows 7, so I Installed that on the drive containing vista home premium( its on drive c:),

now I can boot into both 7 or vista(which is on f:), but only If I boot from drive f: and I want to be able to boot into each OS independently, from each OS' own hard drive, rather than having to use drive f:/ just to boot in an OS running on drive c: preferably when booting from each hard drive I can choose 7 or vista. I just want this just in case an HD fails and I can only boot from one HD

Any help? sorry for lack of info, crunched on time.

PS. Forgot to mention drive c:/ still has the old boot screen for the two versions of vista. I can use c:/ to boot into vista on f:/ but cant use it to boot into 7 which is on c:/

i would appreciate assistance in getting a dual boot set up with vista64 and windows 7

Updating Vista/Win7 Dual Boot With Clean
I have my current system with Vista x64 on the C drive dual-booting with Windows 7 RC installed on the F drive.

Is there a way to install the Windows 7 RTM to my C drive without destroying my Win 7 RC version? I want to leave it there until I have everything installed and working. Then I can format the F drive and start clean.

Or would it be better to just add the new Dual-boot to C drive and then remove the old Vista?

WIN7 / Vista Home Premium Dual Boot - TRASHING ONE
I have C Drive 250gb - Vista HP SP2 and, PARTIONED, also a W Drive 250gb - Windows 7 RC7100

Boot Manager list Windows 7 first, which is what I wanted and set via msconfig.

I think I am going to trash my Vista and install a clean Windows 7 on C drive.

I am thinking to do this:

1. From within Windows 7, go to msconfig and reset boot sequence to C Drive

2. Reboot. From within Vista, go to Disk Management and delete the W partition (and therefore Windows 7) and then to resize my C drive to full amount of C/W size (500GB)

3. From within Vista, load in Windows 7 DVD, go to My computer and set off setup.exe & do a clean install...or do I have to change boot sequence thru bios first and reboot to the DVD drive to do this?

I have all discs/drivers for my other applications and they are all working fine on my present Windows 7 drive

Or would I simply do an in-place upgrade?

I know I have to either purchase a new copy or an upgrade copy of Windows 7.

Is my thought process above correct?

Custom Install Win7 On XP Pro/Vista XP Dual Boot
I have just discovered that I cannot do an Upgrade from Vista HP to Win 7 Pro and that I will have to do a Custom or clean install. That will be OK and doesn't cause any problems.

I have XP on one HDD and Vista on another with dual boot. However I want to replace Vista HP with Win 7 Pro 32 bit, ( I intend to go 64 bit later on).

What I would like to know is, will Win 7 replace Vista on the boot sequence (MBR?), so that on booting the PC I have the option of selecting either XP or Win 7, or will I be presented with a boot menu of XP, Vista and Windows 7, albeit that Vista is no longer installed? If the latter, will this cause any problems in selecting the OS that I want to launch i.e the MBR looking for a now non existing Vista and would there be a way to remove reference to Vista?

Winload.exe Error Cant Reformat New Hdd Or Anything
so i have my mums laptop which is a toshiba portege one of the old student laptops. it started getting the BSOD and then not being able to restart with it just keep going around in circles trying to boot saying that winload.exe is missing or corrupt with the error code 0xc0000001

it all requires you to be able to log into windows or safemode first. i have tried 2 seperate windows 7 discs that are proven to be good and an ubuntu disc and an xp and a repair disk. the windows 7 discs go to the "windows is loading files" and then to that error done it around 30 times. the xp and repair discs just stay on the blank screen with a flashing underscore and nothing will happen. the ubuntu disc can start up in a live session but when you try and install it it freezes at 5% and will never get passed it.

i put the hdd into another pc and done the command prompt partitioning and clearing as well as using gparted and went through all the discs again and all happened the same so i just went out and bought another hdd thinking that will fix it.

the new hdd makes no difference and i get the exact same results with the discs. i can get into the bios but i cannot get any further with anything, is there hope or is the pc messed up?

Winload.exe Error Code 0xc0000001?
I am running on Windows 7 64bit home premium. My computer has been really weird lately. I have tried recovering my computer to an earlier time but it constantly failed. Explorer.exe will fail on me, and I have tried the src thing using run but it will open and immediately close on me. I didn't have a recovery disk so I just recently bought one. I "think" I made the recovery disk correctly. When I put the cd in, I got an error that the file winload.exe with the error code 0xc0000001 saying the file may be missing or may be corrupt. I am not very experienced with computers s of right NOW, explorer.exe keeps failing on me when I log into my account and when press the system restore option, it freezes and starts explorer.exe and a pop up about my administration failing.

After Booting System Repair Disc, Error 0xc000000d Winload.exe Missing?
I'm trying to restore my Windows 7 64bit machine to its factory settings at the moment, and I've tried the following but they've all failed.1.) Boot up and hit F8, select Repair computer, but then it just boots Windows normally.2.) Create System Repair Disc, and from BIOS boot-up, choose boot from DVD-RW, but when it does that and loads Windows files, Error 0xc000000d and winload.exe missing comes up.3.) When I tried to insert the installation disc that came with my computer, it's not recognized and nothing happens (during boot from DVD-RW).*Note - Just today when I tried to do a system restore, it said that I had no previous restore points, but I just restored a week ago, so that might add some info.

Dual Booting WIN7 And Vista Home Premium
I posted here earlier (a couple weeks ago) about a painless installation of Windows 7 on a resized C Drive, which I partitioned into into a C Drive (Vista) and W Drive (Win 7).

All was fine until yesterday - I had been able to login into and out of both operating systems without drama - when out of the blue, for no apparent reason, whenever I try and log onto the Vista operating system, it allows me to logon as Rod with my correct password, but after the logon screen I get the "Preparing your Desktop" and and am presented with a Desktop and icons - but not for me! I get a bubble pop up out of the System Tray that says "Windows had trouble loading your Profile and has loaded up a temporary profile. Contact your administrator".

That would be me! I for the life of me don't know what happened. I have created no new users, nor amended any existing ones. Though, when using Windows 7 earlier in the day, I had to give access rights and permissions to All authenticated Users in order to access and use files on a separate (D) Drive.

Will this have screwed up my User Profile and login to Vista? How?

Dual Boot Win7 & XP - User Error
I installed Windows 7 64bit onto RAID 0+1 and XP on separate SATA drive. However, I now realise I re-formatted XP drive "out of sequence" in so much as I didn't follow the correct procedure to alter the boot sequence prior to re-format.

I can no longer boot into Windows 7, see following

The bios recognises the RAID setup - apologies for the poor quality.

I have tried running the startup & repair via install DVD, several times, but I keep getting the messsage that setup & repair did not detect any problems.

How Do I Keep Win7, Dump XP From Dual Drive, Dual Boot ?
As currently configured, XP is on drive C:, Win 7 was added to drive E:, and the system is currently run as a dual boot. Attempting to boot without the XP drive present will yield a "NTLDR is missing" error very early in the boot process.

I have already tried the following:

(1) I moved the hidden Windows Boot Manager files (bootmgr as well as the associated Boot folder) from the XP drive root to the Win 7 drive root.

(2) After physically removing the XP drive, I rebooted to the Win 7 installation DVD, and used the "Repair Your Computer" option to pull up the "Recovery Tools". Then, using the command prompt utility, ...

(3) I attempted to write a new boot sector to the Windows 7 disk using the command: Bootrec /fixboot, - that yields an error though. The Bootrec /fixmbr claimed success, but ultimately did not make Win 7 drive bootable.

I had to reconnect drive C: just to boot into Win 7 again to write this. I do have files backed up, but to format and reinstall files would take many hours beyond just the time to transfer 400 GB of data, since I have dozens of purchased applications that need to be freshly reinstalled and validated as well. Basically I want my E: drive now to be my boot drive while the C: drive is reformatted and used for general storage.

Any idea how to make my Win 7 drive bootable? Do I need a partition program that is more adept at creating a viable boot sector, or is that even the problem?

System Should Dual Boot To Windows 7 Or Vista Ultimate, But Does Not Recognize Vista
My system dual boots to either Windows 7 or Vista Ultimate, or, at least it is supposed to. Something happened and now the system just boots to Winodows 7 without giving me the choice to boot to either. When I use F6 I find that only Windows 7 is listed in the Operating Systems box.

Windows 7 & Vista Dual Boot Installation - Vista Won't Load?
New laptop has Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I have two business programs that won't run on a 64bit system. Partitioned the hard drive to install Vista Home Premium 32bit to create a dual boot system solely to run these two programs.Can't get Vista to load. Followed tutorial meticulously. All goes fine until the "Vista will boot for the first time" step. After this first boot, the screen returns to the "completing installation" page. However, the process dies here and the progress bar across the bottom of the screen never moves, even after an hour. Reformatted the partition and started over with same results. Multiple attempts always die after the first boot.

Remove Vista From Vista / Windows 7 Dual Boot?
I have two drives (C and D) with Vista on one and Win 7 on the other (not sure if they're actual drives or partitions of a single drive, how do I tell?). I am dual booting and never use Vista. Starting to need the disk space and want to delete Vista. Is this difficult in this scenario?

Removing Vista From Dual Boot Of Windows 7 And Vista?
I had recently installed windows 7 on my laptop running windows vista. I did not remove the existing windows vista installation, and thus win 7 was installed in a dual boot combination. Now, i want to remove vista from my laptop and use windows 7 only.The problem is that during installation, win 7 was installed on logical drive and windows vista was on the primary drive. Thus, i cannot delete/format the windows vista partition. Also I cannot transfer the boot drive to the partition containing win 7 because the vista partition is the active one.

Boot Menu Doesn't Show Up - XP And Win7 Dual Boot
I have XP (x86) installed on one partition.

Last night I installed Windows 7 (x64) on a separate partition.

Anytime I had tried this in the past, using Vista, it always detected the Windows XP partition, and gave me a boot menu with "Earlier Version of Windows" option to boot to.

This is not so with Windows 7.

How can I get the boot menu to show both options, to boot to XP or to Windows 7?

Triple Boot XP, Vista, And Win7
I have four SATA II drives, four gig memory, etc, in my machine that have Windows XP and Vista dual-booting. Both OS's are installed on the same physical drives; about 150 gig each partition.

I've freed up one of the drives, changed the BIOS to boot from the DVD, and installed Windows 7, 64-bit. The installation completed without a hitch and the setup detected everything, sans the Viewsonic monitor. Windows did have a driver for the monitor, but I used the one for Vista 64-bit from Viewsonic and we are good.

After rebooting Windows 7, I expected to have couple of boot option but there's none. No XP and/or Vista, just Windows 7. I've tried to locate the bootmanager in Windows 7, but I couldn't find it and that worried me. There was no backup made since it should've picked up the other OS's.

I didn't touch any of the bootsectors, nor did Windows 7; the latter one did make the drive a primary disk and installed the boot record there. After modifying the BIOS, making the the XP/Vista drive the first drive to be booted, XP and Vista came back, but Windows 7 disappeared. I can boot either OS's by changing the order the drives are booted by the BIOS, but I rather have the choice for XP/Vista/7 in the boot menu.

I am not sure why Windows 7 didn't pick up on the other OS's; the reason could be the SATA drives, if I'd have to guess. Since "disk 1" was set as the first drive to boot by the BIOS, Windows 7 did not check other drives and declared itself the only OS.

The question is, how do I add Windows 7 to the Vista's boot menu, or alternatively, how do I add XP/Vista to 7's boot menu?

Winload.exe Cannot Verify 0xc0000428?
I restarted my PC the other day (Dell XPS 8300) and then when it got the the Win7 login screen (the one where user profiles/pictures should be listed) a weird error message in wingdings font appeared. Eventually I learned to use a install/repair disc to use bcedit and bootrec from command line. Oddly, it seemed that my OS drive letter had changed from C: to E: . After a lot of research I removed a secondary hard disc I installed. The drive letter is now right, and the partition size seems right.y problem now is when windows starts I get an error saying that winload.exe cannot be verified. The error code is 0xc0000428. I've tried bootrec /fixmbr, /scanos, rebuildbcd/, /fixboot, with no luck. Same with start-up repair I understand that some people have been able to find a working winload replacement in /windows/system32 (sometimes called winload~1) but I don't seem to have luck.

Winload.exe Missing Or Corrupt?
i have windows 7 Starter and bought the disk to upgarde it to windows professional, so i put dvd into dvd-unit... duh and after loading two white bars for secondary boot device it displays the hell message "winload is missing or corrupt..." i have already tried EVERYTHING on the forums and on the web including all the bootrec processes, rebuilt bcd, get a new copy of winload switching carpets, and modding BCD file to specify diferent routes for windows to search the file.. and yet nothing...I personally think the problem is that my C: drive it's partitioned in 3 one called system backup (wich is the standar recovery console for vaio, another partition of around 10 gb named System reserved and the free space where windows is located.
