Cannot start windows 8

Hey guys!

I registered here because this forum is very active and useful.

My main problem is, I'll start from the beginning. I tried to install linux Kali as a partition on my windows 8 and was using EasyBCD to add Kali linux to boot entry. Somehow I ended up remove the entry from Windows 8 start, is not the removal of the drive of Windows 8, but removing the sense of boot entry that I can not boot into it. I tried MANY MANY MANY solutions to address them. I tried to use a recovery disc but that just shows the windows logo and restarts and restarts and does the same thing.

Finally, I just gave up and thought I'll just get rid of this windows 8 which by the way came with my Toshiba L855-149 pre-installation and just install windows 7. Of course, I needed my files if just an hour ago, I removed the hard drive from the laptop, put it in HDD Docking thing I have allows me to add the hard drive as an external drive on my another desktop win7 PC. I started to copy all my files I do even now. I thought y at - it a way to make some sort of point to restore from the hard drive or something? Is there another way to start windows 8? Is there anything else I can do? Or I will give just straight up I really don't want to do!

Also I not create a USB recovery, so I did one on my friends PC that has windows 8 and the exact same PC! When I tried to boot into it, it displays the logo of windows for about 20 seconds, then has a blackscreen for 10 seconds, and then it restarts, it keeps it forever! There is a line. All solutions?

ANY solution is welcome, I'm willing to try anything at this point! Thanks for your help guys! We hope to address this problem.


You need to repair your Windows BCD you deleted entry BCD of Windows 8.

To create a USB for BIOS and UEFI collection, it must be formatted in FAT32.

The what USB recovery must have the same version of bits (32 or 64-bit) as installed OS.

When to start the USB for a UEFI based Windows system recovery to choose

the corresponding USB UEFI boot.

    Toshiba Satellite A660-158

    I bought a laptop Toshiba Satellite A660-158. It has served me less than a week. I think it's the broken hard drive.

    My problem:
    Once I start the computer, it started and has worked for a while, but suddenly, there was an error reading that I didn't have the time. Computer has been restarted. And does not load... Until the boot mode does not reach. But the initial test (with logo) succeeded. Takes a long time and finally gives an error:
    Cannot start Windows. Maybe it was because of the recent small difference is the hardware or software configuration. To fix this error:
    1. Insert your Windows installation disc, restart the computer (the complete transmission wasn't)
    2. choose the language settings, and then click Next.
    3. Select "repair your computer".
    If this disk is missing, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer (he turned and said to wear to the DEPOT, but I do not have this feature).

    And why do you think the hard drive is faulty?
    Have you ever tried the repair your computer option? Usually with this option you can restore factory in a few minutes.

    Also if you have the Toshiba recovery disc you can also restore the factory of this disc. Just boot from it and follow the instructions on the screen. You need to do a few clicks only, installation with all the drivers and tools happen automatically.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know! :)

  • Satellite L40 - cannot start Windows


    hope you can help, my computer Toshibal L40 laptop on commissioning began by displaying the following error message:

    * "Cannot start Windows. a recent change in the software hardware might be causing... » *

    It offers the possibility of:
    "* Launch Startup Repair option" * "

    I chose this. WIndows seems to load up, but then I get the following error message:

    Installed program cannot start. Click OK to turn off the computer *.

    I lost the recovery disk, but attempted to load the recovery console by using a windows XP disk, but it gave me error message more. Advice would be very welcome.

    For the installation of Vista you don't need SATA driver but for Windows XP Home edition you need. Is no problem at all.

    The question is what you want to do now? If you want to use Vista just use recovery media and you will have factory again.
    No problem at all.

    If you should start up using recovery disc then the recovery process would be started and the whole HARD disk may be formatted!

    You can try to start by using a WinPE

  • Cannot start Windows, Windows Setup does not detect the hard disk, Bootmgr is misiing

    I have a few problems on my laptop [Acer 3810 t]

    -The first problem
    My mobile give me screen "cannot start windows' who have 2 choices: run the Startup Repair tool and boot normally. I chose to fix it, but nothing happens and stuck "starting windows" and gives unmountable boot volume 'blue screen '. the Dungeon of blues screen appear (for laptop is a not restart). So I turned off my phone and turn it back on it. the "could not start" screen again and I chose to start normally. but the result is negative. My portable Dungeon cannot start windows. Because of that I am using the advanced boot option and choose all the boot type such asit cannot load the safemode, last configuration etc, but the result is the same, you cannot start windows. in safe mode, its stuck in loading fileinfo.sys. I do not give up to try again with the advanced boot option. until I have a bad situation. My laptop can only 1 file in safe mode and blues screen do not appear again (my laptop only return at the beginning of start or restart)

    -The second problem
    because it cant solved, I want to reinstall my laptop. My OS is Vista 32 bit (pre-installed). I want to install the new operating system, windows 7. I use Dsik Flash bootable USB to install Windows 7. But in the BIOS, it is detected as a USB HDD. So I set my BIOS to load USB HDD to the first order. the installation can be done, but only until the "start Setup" screen and its deadlock. I have it wait up to an hour, but nothing happens. So I'm going to BIOS, change SATA mode to IDE mode AHCI. Then load the USB and go "installation program start screen. but the new problem is the installation of window does not detect my hard drive. So I can not choose the place to install the operating system. I have to load the driver, but I did not. Again to load the configuration to AHCI and IDE, until I get my HDD can detected in IDE mode. So I think I can move easily, I choose custom installation and choose the hard drive to install the operating system. But unfortunately, at the beginning of the process, after choosing the OS, the Installer gives error if installation location the installation failed. (I forgot the error message)

    -The third problem
    So far, I can't spend 'startup begins' as well in mode IDE and AHCI. Also bootmgr in my hard disk is missing, so I can't go to move the startup repair or the startup option in my HDD as before

    What is the error code that you got with blue screen?

    I think that there is a problem with your drive HARD check that by contacting acer...

    1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

  • Cannot start Windows

    my hp windows cannot start, I don't have an installation disc. I tried the windows memory diagnostic and no luck. I run advanced diagnostic-starting test sytem and give me the ID of breakdown on hard drive 1.


    The error code will be a Smart failure or disk Self Test - in both cases, this would indicate that hard is defective and must be replaced.  This is also consistent with the question of commissioning.

    If your laptop is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange for the disk replaced - you can check the status of your warranty here.

    If you live in the United States, contact HP here.

    If you are in another part of the world, begin here.

    If you are out of warranty and would like a guide to replacing the hard drive yourself, please let me know - include the full model number and the laptop Nr - see here for an explanation.

  • HP ENVY m6 1206 TX: cannot start Windows (8.1)

    The other day I wanted to turn my computer off and let it, because I was in a bad mood and wanted to get awy and do something else. But when I went to click on update and stop, I clicked on update and restart. I more wanted to leave everything to rest because he was for a long time on the computer. But I waited for the update that stopped on 27% for a long time, after going quickly through the others. It probably would have been fine, but I was imptient and took the incredibly stupid decision to force the computer to turn off because I was tired. The next time that I turned it, Windows wouldn't start.

    When I try to start the computer, it says:

    Auto repair

    Your PC did not start successfully

    So, I can either tap on restart to restart my PC that it can sometimes solve (this isn't for me). Or go to advaced options.
    In options advanced > troubleshooting, I can update my pc without losing the files but that fails.
    Then options are more advanced. I can do a system restore, but there is none. Same thing with system image recovery. Starup repair fails. Command PROMT... I don't know what to do. Even with the settings of the UEFI firmware. There is start parameters also right up. I don't know what to do with them.

    In a quick test of the system, everything going except Hard shore short check the DST, who said the warning. No info was given, which doesn't really help.

    I can do with these options that could help? Or should I send repair? Or, if the reset in advanced options option is different to the first, what should I do? I doubt that it is the same because he says that I will lose all my files, whereas it would appear to the other literally just restart the computer.

    Thanks for any help.



    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    I read your post on your PC is no longer to leave and wanted to help.

    The description of the problems you are experiencing generally indicate one or two of the following ways:

    (1) defective hard drive
    (2) damaged/missing bootloader files

    Already, you did the second and said that has not fixed the problems.

    And you have already received errors on the first.  To confirm the status of hard disk, please follow the instructions in this link to test your hard drive:

    If that confirms that your drive has failed, then you will need to replace it.  Please report back if this is the case.

    If the drive has failed, you will need replace it and order the HP recovery media to restore your PC to a working state.

    As for recovery, onlu Refresh keeps the files; the other delete files - so before you make them, you must save all the files and folders you want to keep.  If you cannot start the PC enough to do this, you would need to remove the drive from the PC, buy a USB-to-Hard-Driver adapter, connect the drive to another PC and copy files and folders there.

    Good luck

    Please use HP recovery DVD/USB, you must have already created Preveniravant the update level, just after the purchase of this laptop - at the factory to reset the system.

    Otherwise, try to recover HP Recovery of built in partition (most often it will not work):

  • Cannot start Windows Journal or Tablet PC Input Panel

    Suddenly, I get the following message appears when you try to start Windows Journal on my Tablet PC:

    Suddenly, I get the following message appears when you try to start Windows Journal on my Tablet PC:

    "Windows Journal cannot start. There was an error initializing inking components.  If this problem persists... »

    In addition, input panel Tablet PC version 1.7.2600.5512 brings is more a place to write

    After extensive Google/Binging I finally jumped on my solution. I have Windows 7 Ultimate and Office Professional 2010. I tried different solutions online without success:

    • Reset
    • Fix Office 2010 (no, I didn't uninstall and reinstall)
    • SFC/scannow (no problem found)
    • The "delete and then add Tablet PC components" in Control Panel programs and features/turn on Windows features
    • Close all browsers (without success)

    Then it dawned on me that OneNote is a design feature. I figured that this was linked to components of Tablet PC inking, as my research has shown people also had problems with Windows Journal. I also had problems with Windows Journal, stating the issue of inking of the components. In OneNote, I went to the drawing Ribbon and tried to shoot when a popup said that I didn't have the Tablet PC features installed (even if I checked that). and offered to install it (Yes!). Curiously, he asked for the DVD for FrontPage 2003, I also installed. Who could guess, but it was my solution. I hope this helps someone.
