On reboot, BSOD 0xc000000e 'winload.efi missing or corrupted'

Go to solution Solved by Bananas!,

Okay, it appears I have solved the problem! In my UEFI BIOS (Asus), I went and disabled Fast Boot. This somehow fixed it. I guess my BIOS was for some reason skipping winload.efi during Fast Boot. Problem solved. 😄 

Hello.

So I recently built a new gaming PC. It's been great, other than this problem, which has been happening since I installed Windows. On reboot, my computer will bluescreen, saying "Recovery." Image below. IMG_1416.thumb.jpeg.71c74ad828afbadcdc63d93c563bf113.jpeg

Sometimes it says that 'winload.efi' can't be accessed, which is probably the problem. I found a way to be able to boot into Windows to get past this, by pressing Esc and going into the UEFI. Then I immediately exit and reset, which then resets the PC and boots into Windows. I've tried 'sfc /scannow', 'chkdsk C : /r', among other things. I've also tried to boot from a USB stick and go into Repair, and go into CMD and run 

  • bootrec /fixmbr, which is successful
  • bootrec /rebuildbcd, which it says is successful but it doesn't find any Windows installations
  • and finally, bootrec /fixboot, which comes to 'Access is denied.'

I've seen that you could get bootrec /fixboot to work by messing with diskpart and changing the drive letter.

Help is appreciated.

epic gamer time!
