Hi I have been having a problem with my laptop and have been asking people if they have a solution. My problem is my laptop says this every time I start it: windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause
Status: 0x000000e
This all started when I was trying to fix my usb stick by using partition wizard and it said something about deleting something and I thought it was something on the usb. So I pressed yes to delete one of the partitions because I thought it was one on the usb. It told me to restart but when I did I got the message I just told you. Thanks if you can help.

Did this help get you going on the right track? Is the message coming up when you first start the system because that is why I think it has to do with the BCD or Boot on your partition.

Did your laptop come with installation disks or did you make the required backup disk when you first got the laptop?

Yep that was the next step since it does look like you deleted the partition or at the very least the master boot record or BCD as it is called is corrupted.

That should work to rebuild the BCD so it will boot. There should be a startup repair on that to replace any missing or corrupted files.
