Error code 0xc0000034 no recovery disk, hard drive system recovery corrupted, menu and setup buttons not working

Hi,

Have an HP Envy 6t-1200 Ultrabook with a preinstalled Windows 8.

Came to use the computer one day, and it has the blue screen, saying there is an error, it needs to restart, looking for information, then will restart for me.

Every time the computer restarted, this would happen again and again, could go on for hours.

Then I tried to do a system recovery, after pressing the esc button.

Another blue screen says that some information is missing, blah blah blah.

I can't find my windows recovery disk or usb, and I can't even get onto Windows to make the recovery disk myself with the recovery manager thingy.

Tried many things, at first esc button, F2, F8, and F11 worked.

After a while, now only the esc button works.

What happened?

How can I quickly fix this problem? I don't even need to keep the memory, or restore it, or save it or anything.

Hi,

 

The Error code 0xc0000034, is due to the system boot files are missing or corrupted. I suggest you to try the following steps to repair the corrupted boot files and check if it helps.

 

If you don’t have a Windows 8 disc, I would suggest you to download the Windows 8 installation files from another computer through this link and choose to “create an installation media” when the upgrade assistant prompts.

Method 2 is completed successfully until get to:

 

Bootrec /rebuildbcd

 

Then get question:

Add installation to boot list? Yes<Y>/No<N>/All<A>:

 

No matter what choice I choose, I get:

The requested system device cannot be found

 

Not sure what to do next.  I would run method 1 but I am having to boot up initial with USB on a system recovery file, so not sure how to run the downloaded file.

 

Help please.

Ok,

 

I found that I had changed the EFI boot to Legecy. Becasue it was no longer in UEFI it would not allow a change using the "Bootrec / rebuildbcd"

 

Once I changed back to UEFI it allowed the "Bootrec / rebuildbcd" to change the file and I did successfully start my computer.   Yeah!!!

 

Thanks for the posts or I would still be down.

 

Lastly in the Boot I had to move the boot priority of the USB up on level to read my USB recovery file.

 

Happy holiday.

This is where I found the info on the UEFI.
