I recently bought a Kingston 120GB SSD and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on it. I also have a secondary 500GB HDD: Western Digital WD5000AADS.
When I try to boot, it freezes and shows the following message:
Windows failed to start. \Boot\BCD Error code: 0xc000000f An error ocurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
I've tried most of the solutions I could find:
- Using the /fixmbr and /fixboot commands.
- Using /bcdboot D:\Windows.
I can boot normally if I insert the Windows Installation disc, select to boot from it and skip the button press.
The SSD is C: and the HD is F:. However, on the Repair System menu, the Local Disk (SSD) appears as D: and the HD as C:.
Also, there was a SSD partition named D:, which was active, but I deallocated it and set C: as active, because there was a missing bootmgr problem previously.

UPDATE: I disconnected the HDD and ran the Repair System again. It automatically detected the error and repaired the boot data. I reconnected the HDD after that and now everything is fine. Thanks.
