    Recovery

    I'm trying to load my daughter's thumb drive issued from school to my MacBook Pro. I'm getting a "recovery" error message that says:

    Your PC needs to be repaired
    The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.
    File:\Windows\system32\sinload.eri
    Error code: 0xc0000225
    You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.

    I don't have any installation media. Help!

    Thank you!!

    This is a bit confusing, as the errors you are seeing are Windows errors. Are you running Windows on your MacBook Pro?

    'Marvin' - Mac Mini Late 2014 - macOS Mojave (10.14.5)

    It appears you're using a Windows 8 Laptop...

    You'll need to boot from a Windows 8 Recovery Media...

    Trouble Shoot -> Advanced Options -> Command Prompt

    CMD> bootrec /scanos
    CMD> bootrec /rebuildbcd
    CMD> bootrec /fixmbr
    CMD> bootrec /fixboot
