The title says it all, from what I can tell on Google a lot of people are having this problem. I need an answer though, not 500 people jumping in here saying "me too!" if anyone knows how to fix this issue please let me know ASAP. The issues at hand are as follows 1. The OS is Windows Vista. 2.This message appears during startup 3.Windows does not have the option anywhere to boot from a restore point. 4. My friend does not have the Windows Vista CD/DVD anymore or ever. I would greatly appreciate help in this reguard. My friend also has no money, so if anyone is aware of a free fix that would also be greatly appreciated. Please keep in mind this issue is similiar to the (0xc000000e) issue, however, there is an F at the end of his for whatever reason.
