Hello Everyone,

 

Thank you a head of time for your generosity and skills.

 

What:

It lookes as if I have a missing UEFI "boot" sectore. All I get is a black screen after the manufacturer boot screen. (please refer to image)

 

What I have tried:

1. Bootrec fix, etc attempts

2. diskpart

3. chkdsk

4. Windows 8 rescue disk and auto fix

5. Third part rescue live disk to do a chkdsk (please refer to image)

 

Results:

None of these worked. At one point the bootrec worked fine in all the steps and then it didn't. And the same thing with diskpart. I see that there is one partition with errors. (please refer to image.)

 

What do I do to fix the EFI?

 

Thank you very much for your time and efforts!

The System Reserved partition holds the Boot Manager code and the Boot Configuration Database.  It also reserves space for the startup files required by the BitLockerDrive Encryptionion feature.  You may have damaged or deleted the System Reserved partition.

 

What is the make and model of this computer?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hello dc3,

 

thank you for that insight. I had a suspicion that was the case from my research as to it's purpose. 

 

The make and model is HP DV6-7245. 

 

What do you think I can do next?

 

Thanks again,
