Upon starting my Windows 7 based PC, I am getting the following error:

Windows could not start. A recent modification of the software could be the cause of this incident. To correct the problem:
1. Insert the Windows installation disc and redémarez computer.
2. Choose your language settings and click "Next"
3. Click "Repair your computer".
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Status: 0xc000000e

  • Now that your recovery DVD is ready, you simpl have to boot your PC from it.
  • Once loading phase is completed, follow the on-screen instructions, and restart when prompted.
  • Here, your computer is fixed!
