Ill start with a high level list of events and fill in gaps if need be. Bascially here is the deal.
- I bought an ASUS 15 inch touch screen with windows 8 approx 18 months ago referbed off ebay.
- For the most part it has been running fine since then
- had a situation where i was trying to install some software for my daughter while also doing a million other things.
- computer crashed mid install and wouldnt boot
- over the next couple days, again, while trying to do a million other things, I rushed through evey trick Ive ever learned (mostly from this site)
- Initially, was a bit perplexed since safemode wouldnt boot...ive never seen that.
- Long story short, I tried evey possible option windows 8 recover would let me try....repari, resintall, dos commands for chkdsk, fsc, koppix. Esentially NOTHING would complete.
- Lastly, I created a usb reparid disk from microsoft and tried to reinstall windows 8 and, I think, completely hosed the machine. I cant get ANYHTING other then an f2 BIOs at boot.
What are my options? I treid to create a boot to D:\ so that at least I could still knoppix CD, but I couldnt figure that out in the BIOS.
any help is appreciated!!
