|I recently received a restore usb for windows 8 from dell and had some trouble.|
When I tried to repair the operating system with the usb restore, this it what happened.
I was given the following options- off the USB restore
2- system restore
4- Re-install windows 8
After trying to 1-3 first to repair the OS, all denied being able to fix.
Sometimes I would get these messages-
2-A required drive partition is missing.
3- windows\system32\winload.efi is missing or corrupt.
After I re-installed windows 8, I see the following partitions.
1- c: re-install windows 8 – 404gig of 418gig
2- d: corrupt windows 8 , but all the system files are still there 45 gig of which 38 gig is used by the previous OS.
My question is , is there any way to fix or restore the corrupt previous OS ?
The reason I want try restore previous OS is because I had activated windows , had all the dell drivers installed and had the antivirus, installed.
should I try to rename C:- D and D:- C to see what happens ?
why are we not getting email notifications anymore after the upgrade ?
