Windows 7 repair disk error code 0x4001100200001012

I created a Windows 7 64 bit repair disk (tried twice), it boots then freezes at the GUI window and comes up with error code 0x4001100200001012.  When I boot with the Dell reinstallation disk that came with the computer, it's fine and has the same functions as a self-created repair disk.  I have another Windows 7 PC, which is 32 bit, and the disk I created on that one works fine on that PC, of course it won't work on this PC as it's a 64 bit.  Seems there is a problem on the 64 bit disks created using Windows 7?

Hi Boyd,



Welcome to Microsoft Answers!



You may try burning the repair disk at a lower speed, as at times due to a high speed burning the disk is not readable.


Also, the disk that you are creating it is getting corrupted while it is being created. What you may do is, run a System File Checker (SFC) Tool and the try creating a repair disk.

Steps to perform SFC scan:


1. Click the Start button

2. From the Start Menu, Click All Programs followed by Accessories

3. In the Accessories menu, Right Click on the Command Prompt option

4. From the drop down menu that appears, Click on the 'Run as administrator' option

5. If you have the User Account Control (UAC) enabled, you will be asked for authorization prior to the command prompt opening. You may simply need to press the Continue button if you are the administrator or insert the administrator password etc.

6. In the Command Prompt window, type: sfc /scannow and then press Enter

7. A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'

8. Be patient because the scan may take some time

9. If any files require replacing, SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Windows 7 for this process to continue

10. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

11. After the scan has completed, close the command prompt window, restart the computer and check.

Once you have run the scan try creating a repair disk and check if you get the same error when you try to boot.
