Just installed Windows 8.1 (clean install) and was re-installing all the drivers when at last I decided to set up my fingerprint scanner again. Went through all of the HP security set up and such and restarted my laptop when prompted to. Upon reboot I got this error before I could boot up Windows:


I've tried a system restore but it cant access the drive; is there anyway to disable this program? I can access the BIOS but I can't get it to boot Windows because it just hangs on that screen. I really cant afford to wipe this drive, all of my school documents are on there and I wiped the backup I made after everything seemed fine and dandy. 

Does anyone have any experience with this program? I submitted a help ticket to Winmagic support but I need this laptop for class tomorrow morning and I want to have it fixed as soon as physically possible. Thanks all in advance!

I'm having similar problems and looking into a fix. I'll post back once I do.

You could give this a go (guide is for W7, but should be a similar process for W8/8.1).

It refuses to run on those IOS's because the earlier versions of cIOScorp scooped out your Wii's innards and turned them into delicious Scrambled IOS Breakfast, which confused the crap out of their installer and gave TT all sorts of bizarre errors to scratch their heads over.

Limits are temporary, the boundaries of which are to be pushed by diligent study and application of oneself to the problem at hand.
