After trying to fix this issue myself for a whole day I finally decided to come to this website in order to see if I could get some assistance. I have an HP 15-R011DX laptop with Windows 8 installed. For some strange reason it refuses to fully boot up
It instead stops at a blue screen that says the following:
"Operating System couldn't be located: Error code 0x0000185
Please use a recovery tool CD or USB"
I'm paraphrasing but thats around the gist of it.
The laptop was fairly new so I could care less about the files on it and wanted to return it to factory settings but unfortunately when I try to do this (Hitting F11 while its turning on, going to the options, etc. etc.) it gives me an error and won't allow it
I tried restoring it to a previous time and I still get an error. Over all the laptop won't allow me to do anything without there being an error such as
"Could not find offline boot volume" or "Unexpected error parameter incorrect (0x80070057)"
I've come to this site hoping someone here would be able to help me as I've completely run out of ideas.
