Windows 8 not booting up properly

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I recently installed Windows 8 on my computer. It works well but after few days of using it, its taking too long to load up. I formatted it again and installed Windows 7 but it did not end up successfully. I got an error "Logon Personalization Failed". I tried to boot from the installation disk but Windows 7 did not load correctly so I have to install Windows 8 again. I got another error that say, Failed bootbcd. What is this error and how can I fix it?

Hi,
 
The problem you are facing sometimes comes and give you the indication of the hard disk failing. Maybe you have to replace the hard disk. So first check your hard disk integrity. Follow these steps.
1. Press F8  or check what key is assigned to go in Advance boot options.
2. Now select the safe mode with command prompt and press enter.
3. now type in command prompt chkdsk /r ( chkdsk then space then /r combine).
4. Follow the instructions.

Hello,

There are several ways to fix BCD (Boot Configuration Data). Follow the following ways:

1. Boot Windows 8 installation disc.

2. From the “Repair” section, start Command Prompt.

3. Run the following command:

Bootrec.exe /fixmbr

Bootrec.exe /fixboot

If that doesn’t solve your issue,

4. Run the command:

Bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

It will bring you two type of result.

  • Result 1:

Scanning all disks for Windows installations.

 

Please wait, since this may take a while…

 

Successfully scanned Windows installations.

Total identified Windows installations: 0

The operation completed successfully.

                   

In this case, go to step 5.

  • Result 2:
Scanning all disks for Windows installations.
 
Please wait, since this may take a while...
 
Successfully scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations: 1
[1]  D:Windows
Add installation to boot list? Yes<Y>/No<N>/All<A>:

In this case, I recommend you to press “a”.

5.       Keep on running these commands:

bcdedit.exe /export C:BCD_Backup

c:

cd boot

attrib bcd –s –h –r

ren c:bootbcd bcd.old

bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

This will surely solve your issue.
