The 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 Windows settings. The registry also contains settings for low-level operating system components and applications, which run on the Windows platform, such as services, device drivers, kernel, user interface, SAM, and third-party software. In case this hierarchical database gets corrupted, your system may not start and you may not be able to access Windows partitions on the drive. This behavior of the Windows operating system leads to the loss of critical partitions. To recover partitions lost in such cases, you should opt for Windows Partition Recovery.

Consider, one fine day, when you start your Windows computer and encounter the following stop error message:

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


Stop: 0xc0000218 {Log file error}

The registry cannot load the hive (file): SystemRoot System32 Config SYSTEM or its registry or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not modifiable.

After the above error, the system boot process fails. To fix this problem, you need to find out the real cause of this problem and perform Partition Recovery solving it.

Reasons for the problem

The above behavior occurs if the required registry hives cannot be loaded into memory. You may face this problem if the file is missing or corrupted. Log files can get corrupted due to virus infection, hard drive corruption, file system errors, improper system shutdown, and other similar reasons.

How to fix registry corruption?

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

When the operating system loads, press the spacebar key when the message “Load last known good” is displayed. Perform a parallel installation and restore corrupted log files from backup.

But formatting the hard drive removes all partitions and stored data.
