That error message is usually caused by errors in the Boot Configuration Data or simply BCD. I would do a automatic repair using either installation CD/USB or "System Repair Disc". Do you have the "Windows 8" installation disc in hand ?. If not do you have another system with "Windows 8" as OS ?.

I don't have the disc. My friend has a Windows 8 computer.
You can create a "Recovery Drive ( USB )" or "System Repair Disc ( CD )" from your friend's machine to fix your system. To this work, both of your OS should be the same. If your machine is installed with Windows 8 64 bit , then your friend's machine should be the same. A repair disc created from Windows 8.1 may not work with Windows 8.0.
Please follow instructions from the below link to create the "Recovery Drive".
After successful creation, boot from the disc and run "Automatic Repair".

Please try manually rebuilding BCD.
1. Open Command Prompt from Recovery Drive.
2. Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and press "Enter".
If you see :
Scanning all disks for Windows installations.
Please wait, since this may take a while...
Successfully scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations: 1
Add installation to boot list? Yes<Y>/No<N>/All<A>:
Press "Y" to confirm.
3. Reboot the system and check whether it boots. If not, run "Automatic Repair" 2-3 times continuously. If nothing helps you may need to "Refresh" or "Reset" PC.

I got 0 identified windows installations.
Looks like "C" drive is corrupted. There is also a possibility for hard drive might be faulty. What is the make and model of your laptop ? (some laps may came with built in diagnostics tests ).
