This is a very weird issue. I have a laptop at work that the client was restoring, while not plugged in, and you guessed it, it died. Now there is no information on the drive. My job is to restore it.
All partitions were lost, so there is no way to use Windows 8 refresh or reset feature. Next I thought I'd try booting off my Windows 8 stick and just install it via that.
This did not work. I keep getting a bcd error in /efi/microsoft/boot/BCD. It is a bootloader error when trying to boot the Windows 8 installation from the flash drive.
I thought it may be that the Windows 8 installation is corrupt. So I took it home and tried it on my computer.. and the booting of Windows 8 is fine.
So I have no clue what is going on, I reflashed my flash drive many times with 10 different Windows 8 Pro isos... a few being used more than once. One system builder, one retail, one oem, and one rtm.
I need help. I have no clue what is going on.
