Windows Registry is one of the most important parts of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is a database, which stores all the configuration options and settings of Windows. Registry also contains settings for the low-level OS components and applications, that run on Windows platform, such as services, device drivers, kernel, user interface, SAM, and third-party software. In case this hierarchical database gets damaged, your system may not boot and you may not be able to access Windows partitions on the drive. This behavior of Windows operating system leads to critical partition loss. In order to recover lost partitions in such cases, you need to opt for Windows Partition Recovery.

Consider, one fine day, when you start your Windows-based computer, and come across the following Stop error message:

Stop 0xc0000218 (0xe11a30e8, 0x00000000, 0x000000000,0x00000000)UNKNOWN_HARD_ERROR


Stop: 0xc0000218 {Registry File Failure}

The registry cannot load the hive (file):SystemRootSystem32ConfigSYSTEM or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

After the above error, system boot process fails. In order to sort out this problem, you need to find out the actual cause of this problem and perform Partition Recovery by sorting it out.

Grounds of the issue

The above behavior occurs if the necessary registry hives can not be loaded into memory. You may face this problem if the file is either missing or corrupt. Registry files may get damaged due to virus infection, hard drive corruption, file system errors, improper system shutdown, and other such reasons.

How to Fix Registry Corruption?

Run ‘chkdsk /p’ command on your hard drive using the Recovery Console. After completion of disk checking, reboot the system.

When the operating system loads, press Space Bar key when ‘Load Last Known Good’ message is displayed. Perform parallel installation, and restore damaged registry files from backup. If the above methods can not help you to solve the problem, you need to format your hard drive and reinstall Windows operating system. But, hard drive formatting removes all the partitions and stored data.

In such cases, Partition Recovery Software becomes the need of the hour.

The application uses advanced scanning techniques to carry out in-depth scan of the entire hard drive to extract all lost partitions. It can Recover Partition in a safe and easy way.

    Hello, I have tried to hard reset my A7 2016 Samsung phone but got in trouble. In fact, after selecting “wipe data/factory reset”, it shows the following message “e:failed to find /misc partition”, and now when I restart my phone it stuck on startup! I’ve tried to select the “wipe cache partition” but unsuccessfully! Could you please show me the solution? Kind regards, Belkacem
