I just bought a new HDD, Seagate Barracuda® 7200.12 1TB. I removed my previous master HDD, and replaced this with the new one. I turned on the pc, with the win8 cd inside my CD-ROM and booted up from my cd drive. This HDD doesn't have any OS, for obvious reasons. When I tried to install Win8, I just got the error message telling me something like this:
Your pc needs to be repaired. Operation System cannot be loaded because of a critical system driver is missing or contains error. Windows\System32\drivewrs\adpu32.sys
The progress got 70% finished before the regularer "We need to boot to apply the new settings bla..bla" The above error message occured at this time.
I googled for hours, to figure out this.
Came over this forum thread at microsoft's own support forum. I tried what the user JustinKostic wrote:
bootrec /fixMBR bootrec /Fixboot bootrec /rebuildBCD and also chkdsk /r c: chkdsk /r d: chkdsk /r e: chkdsk /r f:
And then tired to do a automatically repair of the computer, which is under advanced settings. This menu wants me to select a specific Operation System, and the only one is Win8, so obviosly something has been installed. But when I try to do the automatically repair, the only error message I get is:
Automatic repair couldn't repair your pc Press "Advanced options" to try other options to repair your pc or "Shut down" to turn off your pc
I did try the reset your pc, but this also fails!
What is going on here? So frustrating, I've strugged with this for nearly 20 hours now.. Can somebody help me?
