    Default Get error code: 0x0000001 when starting windows 8

    Hello everyboday,

    I installed windows 8, and it was running fine for about a week, then a problem comes - Recovery. Your PC couldn't start properly. After mulitple tried, the operating system on your PC failed to start, so it needs to be repaired.

    Error code:0x0000001.

    What I have tired:

    1. run recovery,
    2. re-installed windows 8,
    3. re-install some apps

    None of above works. You have any fixes?

    How did you install the OS? Did you visit the Compatibility Center before installing Win 8 RP

    This error code can show incompatibility. This article discusses this error. The article is written for Vista, but is also appropriate to Win 8.

    I have gotten error code 0xc0000001 on every attempt (dozens) to install W8, since W8RP was introduced. W8CP worked wonderfully. I've downloaded the ISO, burned to DVD, and installed to a clean partition. The install follows all the steps, but on the restart after "installing updates", it goes to the WINDOWS screen with the 5 circling dots for an hour or so. The message comes up that my computer will not start. I've followed dozens of tips from 'Microsoft Answers', but have had no success. I have an HP Pavilion p6210f PC with an Athlon II 620 Quad-Core processor.

    I would definitely try a completely new download of the ISO file with a slow burn to a new DVD. Boot to the DVD and select Custom Install, then choose the Drive Options and delete and format the partition, then install again.

    Were you choosing Custom Install previously or Upgrade Install? I have heard of some really strange failures with the Upgrade Install option.

    My intall was set up to dual boot, with W8 on a clean formated 60 gig partition. I burned the ISO DVD with ImgBurn, at the slowest setting. Actually, I've burned about 8 DVDs,most with Microsoft default burner, one with Img Burn and one with some other program which I can't recall: All the results are the same. I'm attempting a Custom Install, booting from the DVD using Advanced Settings so I can choose the partition on my drive. I'm trying to get a friend to attempt an install using my latest DVD to see if his machine will boot from it, but he hasn't reported the results yet. I'm thinking more and more that my computer isn't compatible, even though it seems to be adequate on paper. Any other thoughts?

    Check in your Bios for an NX/XD option and make sure it's enabled. Starting with Win 8 RP MS is enforcing a more stringent security standard. If this is not set to enabled, you will not be able to install Win 8. I had not heard of that particular installation error, but who knows.

    Yes, I updated my bios and enabled NX and PAE already-you were right on track with that advice, but it didn't help. I've been told that the Sha 1-hash could be a problem, but I've been unable to verify that this is NOT the issue. Some help with that might be what I need. Thank You!

    You can install Hash Tab for Windows. Once you have installed Hash Tab, simply right click the ISO file and choose properties. There will be a new Hash Tab. Check the Sha 1 Hash there.
