I am reviving this old thread as I have experienced the very same problem just last night. My W32 stick is about three months old. I am still using the pre-installed Windows 8.1
Prior to this I have been receiving windows update failures and high disk usage caused by Windows Error Reporting.
Last night as my maintenance I restarted the stick and I got the same error.
I have tried every solution to from the Windows troubleshooting and recovery but none of them worked.
I have tried all of the following options:
- System Restore - Did not solve the issue.
- Image Restore - Cannot find any recovery image.
- Automatic Repair - Did not solve the issue.
- System Refresh - Fails to complete.
- System Rest - Fails to complete.
I launched command prompt and check that all the files are still there.
I checked diskpart and I can see that the Primary, System, Recovery and Reserved partitions are all there.
I checked drive C:, S: and R: respectively and all seems intact.
There was a D: drive also mapped to R: so I copied some data files to it but then it suddenly hanged.
When I restarted I now get the message "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix this problem: ..."
And it shows "Status: 0xxc000007b\n Info: An unexpected error has occurred\n"
I booted to the internal UEFI Shell and also an external UEFI Shell and I verifed that the System Partition is still intact.
Everytime I run manually fs0:\efi\boot\bootia32.efi, fs0:\efi\microsoft\boot\bootmgrfw.efi, and fs0:\efi\oem\boot\bootmgrfw.efi I get the same error.
I have now attempted to boot to WinPE 5.0 from the SD Card but I did not run yet diskpart.
I went to c: to check the volume but it is so slow I do not know if it has hanged. I just left it as is. I will check again later tonight.
I just hope that my r:\install.wim is still there.
Where can I get a recovery installation and where can I find the product key? I did not check my box if it has that.
Thanks in advance,
