Did you whip it good like Devo suggests?

♪ I say whip it whip it good

Oh wait, you probably meant you were wiping the drive. Yeah that makes more sense.

How were you wiping it? Did you boot from some other media containing software that wipes your drive? If you began wiping the drive you removed the OS or severely damaged it. That's likely why you're getting those odd screens. How were you intending on reinstalling windows 8?

Yes, we need to know what exactly you did to this drive. If you deleted everything then you need to re-install Windows before it will work again.

[Just for info it is a LaPtop]

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The important thing here is whether:

1. You were removing your own files (pictures, documents, etc)

or

2. Everything including Windows System files.

If it was "2" then it was a strange thing to do and if you went too far you will have to either reload Windows or do a factory restore.

Which was it and how were you doing this delete?

Please answer all of our questions, as this is our only way to understand what might have happened.

You've just repeated yourself and haven't added any new information. If and how it can be fixed depends on how you got to where you are now. Were you doing a factory restore or just deleting software from add/remove within windows or were you using some separate utility to wipe the drive?

It seems most windows 8 factory restores have to be started from within windows or the F8 boot menu. If you've wiped that stuff out you'll need a regular installation disk or recovery disks for your particular model, if they exist.

I suppose you can see if you can still get the F8 boot menu. After turning it on but before windows would normally start loading start tapping F8 and see if you get the menu.

Or maybe you were wiping free space using a program, or maybe you were trying to clear the disk so that you could give the computer away, or maybe something else.

As per 5 & 6 above, we have no idea exactly what you were doing, how you were doing it, or why you were doing it. If you give clear answers to these question then we can suggest the best way forward. Otherwise you will just keep getting questions from us (or inappropriate suggestions based on guess work).
