    Error 0XC000014C during boot on MBR legacy partition


    Hi,

    I'm trying to recover a PC which holds important data.
    the PC can't boot and gives an Errorcode 0XC000014C.
    referencing to boot

    the pc can't start anymore, so i made an USB of windows 10.
    using commandprompt in the installer USB i tried:
    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot -> this gives an access denied error.

    so i tried recovering it using BCD, but apparently this only works for EFI.

    Are there any other possible ways to get the PC working again other than a reinstallation of windows.
    for example hooking a different HDD to the pc and installing windows on there or any ways of using Windows to go on an USB.

    ~

    :)

  3. clone MBR HD to bootable GPT partition?

    Hi,

    1. You cannot convert mbr to gpt without data loss. otherwise, you can follow directions here:

    FROM WINDOWS RECOVERY CONSOLE:

    To change a master boot record disk into a GUID partition table disk using a command line


    • Back up or move the data on the basic master boot record (MBR) disk you want to convert into a GUID partition table (GPT) disk.

    • Open an elevated command prompt (right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator) and type diskpart. If the disk does not contain any partitions or volumes, skip to step 6.

    • At the DISKPART prompt, type list disk. Make note of the disk number you want to convert.

    • At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk <disknumber>.

    • At the DISKPART prompt, type clean.

    2. I'd suggest converting your vista drive to a virtual machine, load that up on your windows 10 system and use a program like virtualbox to run it.

    Error 0XC000014C during boot on MBR legacy partition

    Need to convert Windows 8.1 from UEFI boot to legacy boot

    Hi dnsbob

    Legacy boot requires MBR Partition Style

    Secure boot requires GPT partition Style
