If you can’t boot your machine, there might be different reasons for it. First, Windows should be able to load drivers and device it needs to start the system. If any of these drivers or devices fails to coordinate in the booting process, Windows will not load. In this post, we’re going to talk about such a case where Windows crashes with following error:
Your PC/Device needs to be repaired
A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed.
Error code: 0xc000000e
You’ll need to use recovery tools. If you don’t have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer.
The issue is clearly showing that something went wrong during the boot process. Sometimes you can fix this problem by rebooting the machine. If you’re facing this problem while upgrade your Windows edition, you must first repair the existing Windows edition.
Here are the suggestions worth to try to fix this problem:
