I got a Samsung chronos series 7 laptop from my friend he said it was broken but he has no experience with computers so I didn't really care. Than I turned it on and it was in a constant loop of restarting than I took out the hard drive and put it in my pc and formatted the hard drive. Than I put it back in the laptop and i got this error 0xc000000f. I'm wandering if this is a software or hardware issue. If software how do I fix it if hardware what part went bad.

Hi there DrewT,

I would totally agree with ffg7 and say that you need to install OS once you've formatted the drive on another system. In case this is an OEM Windows, I guess you will need to contact the manufacturer's Support for some assistance.
Apart from that, in case you've reinstalled Windows and you get that error message, try to perform startup repair. Here's a thread on that: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-update/windows-boot-manager-error-0xc000000f/7398cba5-99dc-4a49-a3a8-6500b2bba6f3

Let us know how this goes,
