This is either a fatal error or simple miss by me:
HP Envy 700-056 desktop. Windows 8 x64 (NOT SURE IF 8.1 IS INSTALLED)
The system began to freeze up, then was rebooted. Now it only goes to a blue screen that says:
Your PC needs to be repaired
The boot configuration data for your PC is missing or contains errors
Error code: 0xc0000185
You'll need to use the recovery tools....etc, etc, etc.
Now according to my research this SHOULD be a x64 system, so I used the x64 Recovery/Repair disk I made back when I had 8.0 (but should work?) . It loads the HP logo screen then just keep circling endlessly. Using my 8.1 laptop I made a Recovery/Repair USB drive and tried that but it doesn't work either.
Should I let the Recovery/Repair go for 2 hours (typical repair time) or am I SOL??
