Boot error: Windows Failed to Start

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all

I am really hoping some light could be shed on how i can help fix my recently stumbled upon error.
So after briefly playing around with OCing the cpu using the UEFI bios (which im new to), ive began suddenly getting an error message after pressing the power button that tells me that windows failed to start, and gives me the following status code: 0xc000000e

This error can be avoided by restarting the computer (through the hard restart button), and pressing delete to go into bios, and once inside simply pressing f10 and exit and saving out of the bios, without changing anything. The computer at the next boot cycle boots up just fine, no error, however if i restart, i am once more presented with the error message.

Can anyone help me at all with what is going on? I am really desperate and would greatly appreciate any input.

Attached you will fine a picture of the provided code (sorry about the quality, crappy phone camera)
For the record im runing the z77 sabertooth and 3570k processor

This happened on my P67 Sabertooth early on a lot.

Basically when it was cold booting, it failed to start up with my BIOS settings, but rather than a safe mode/warning kicking in, it would continue booting and error out same as you as the default drive for me was not my SSD in BIOS. The fix is to force it to enter BIOS by at which time it has sufficient voltage and correct settings and save/exit out. All of your settings are actually being loaded only when you enter BIOS, not before like it is supposed to.

This is a BIOS hiccup in which it failed POST but didn't go into BIOS like it is supposed to. You are fine smile.gif

Note: My issue was primarily related to cold booting though, resets were no problem.

I can't remember, but if there is a BIOS boot up delay, it forces it to sit on the BIOS a fixed number of seconds. You could try that for about 5 seconds or so. Alternatively, gripe to ASUS about it, ask them if they can look into it. The issue never got fixed while I had my ASUS Saber so don't hold your breath.

This affected OC and Stock for me.

It is possible to have an OC start doing this before (it has happened to me) basically what I have ascertained is that stability inside of Windows doesn't always mean stability at POST. There is not much you can do other than add CPU core voltage for a CPU overclock or RAM voltage / IMC voltage for a memory overclock etc.

Did you recently change anything? Add more HDDs, different overclock etc?
