When switching on Windows boot manager shows error and will not progress any further. Status Oxc000000f

Reasons Why The 0xc000000f Error Occurs On Your Windows Computer

Three main reasons could lead to the 0xc000000f error on your Windows PC, which are:

1. BCD is corrupted or missing

The most common reason for the 0xc000000f error is that BOOTMGR can’t find the BCD file. It could be damaged or be missing due to a few causes, such as viruses, power outages, disk-write errors, or mistakes from users when manually adjusting BCD.

2. System file is damaged

A corrupted file system is also the cause that could lead to the 0xc000000f error on your Windows computer. For example, when you upgrade your Windows and it’s working on writing critical information to the boot sector. However, sometimes the power goes off suddenly, or the update process is stuck, and you have to force turn off. As a result, the system file could be corrupted and cause this irritating error.

3. Faulty data cable

All the computer components can be damaged over the time, and the data cable is no exception. I often replace my data cable every year. It’s so cheap and doesn’t cost much. So if you have used a data cable for years, it’s time to replace it as sometimes it might cause read or write errors, which can interrupt the boot process.
