Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Started To Reboot In Continuous Loop
Jul 22, 2013
All, I have been experiencing big problems with Windows 8 Pro. I had been running the OS on a 120GB SSD up until a week ago with no problems until the following started happening:
Windows 8 started to reboot in a continuous loop with the following error message: Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. Error code 0cx000021a.
It would then put itself into System Repair mode, but was unable to fix itself. It then booted to the System Repair screen and so I attempted the following in order:
Tired to run System Restore, failed
Tried to System Repair, failed
Tried to System Refresh, failed
Tried to System Reset, failed.
After running System Reset and failing, it rebooted and I was left with 'There is no operating system installed on this device'.
As the version of Windows 8 I have is an online-only installation I then went back into my original order and ordered the accompanying Windows 8 recovery disk. Several days later the disk arrived and I attempted to run a windows 8 re-install from the disk. I followed the onscreen instructions and thought great, this is going to work. However first time, 'Getting files ready for installation' got to 57%, then I received the following error: Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Restart the installation. Error code 0x80070570
So I completely formatted the SDD, deleted partition. Created new partition. The second time, 'Getting files ready for installation' got to 82%, then as before: Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Restart the installation. Error code 0x80070570
At this point I turned off the PC. How I can turn my now brick of a performance PC back into a working system?
He says the last thing the computer did was a windows updated and the day after did not start, when i start it so comes the logo forward "VI10" and a loading circle below for a 1min or 2. then you hear the fan is increasing and it is reading something, then it jumps to a black screen for 1-2 minutes then comes "Preparing to configure Windows".
I let it stand for six hours before I turned it off and start looking try start it in safe mode, have used boot setup before on XP and W7 so know how it looks / works but I can not access it anywhere, I read somewhere you could force it with F8 but do not work .
Also try to bot with cd = same shit
it is a :: Sony VA10 Intel inside Core i5 Model: SVE151J13M Windows 8
I've installed windows 8 just now and after I install drivers it gets stuck in an infinite reboot loop. The motherboard is an ASUS P8Z68-V.
I downloaded the correct drivers from the Asus website and I've also updated my BIOS to the latest version. I had the problem when installing the chipset driver from the asus website. I skipped this one after a reinstall and then installed the rest. Seems like that wasn't the problem. I read around but couldn't get any decent answers. I tried a memtest86+ and that came back negative. Next i tried to set the SATA settings in BIOS to AHCI/RAID/IDE, that didn't work either.

I just did a refresh of my install, and this time it booted. This is the list of removed apps:
bought Win 8 for a Win 7 Dell laptop in Jan. 2013 and have happily used Win 8 for a year. I have a Win 8 backup disc and valid license key.
I decided to update Win 8 to the free Win 8.1 a few days ago and went ahead with the download and installation of Win 8.1. However, after a seemingly successful installation, set up and login, a simple reboot resulted in no longer being able to boot. I can boot to safe mode but cannot boot properly no matter what I do.
There is no specific error message when I reboot, the OS simply fails to reach the login stage and reboots again. It then opens the 'Failed startup' page asking if I wish to use advanced options or restart.I tried turning off all non-Microsoft software like AVG, Comodo, Samsung Keys, etc., but it didn't solve the issue.
I also noticed that Safe Mode boot fails when I attempt to boot to 'Safe Mode with Networking' but is successful when booting to simple 'Safe Mode' or 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt'. I have attempted to burn the Win 8.1 disc as described on this site but from a Win XP system which according to the download software is not possible and unfortunately I do not have access to another system.
I am trying to install Windows 8.1 onto a new PC a clean install. I boot from UEFI CD/DVD Drive with the windows 8.1 install disk in it and it gets to the "Press any key to continue" screen, I press a key and it just restarts my computer. Then I try to boot from just regular CD/DVD Drive it says Missing BootMGR.
This is a Windows 8 OEM CD install, on an i7 x64 system. I have tried this with both UEFI and legacy modes.
I cleaned the drive and allowed setup to partition and format how it sees fit on an Intel SSD.
The system copies files, sets them up and reboots.
The blue windows logo is up for a minute, then the screen (not the PC) power cycles (probably due to a resolution change). It hangs there on a black screen. There is a mouse cursor that responds and the num lock toggles on the kb, but nothing else. CTRL-ALT-DEL does nothing.
My laptop running 8.1 Pro Preview continuously goes in and out of hibernation every 3 minutes or so. Occassionally a reboot with solve the problem, but if I step away and the screen saver comes on the hibernate cycle starts up again.
My issue is that I'm working on a machine that is continuously switching between Desktop and Metro several times a second. It does it in clean boot mode (only Microsoft services enabled, everything else disabled), but not in Safe Mode. I'm running SFC /scannow at the moment, and I already ran linux badblocks /sv and CHKDSK (no errors). SMART status is okay, no triggers have been popped and the quick test passed.
I have a windows 8 laptop and a linux desktop, both connected to the same screen using hdmi - since my screen has only 1 HDMI input, I use an HDMI splitter.
Every time I move from the linux to the windows 8 laptop (using a HDMI mini remote control), I get a message from windows saying that in order to apply these changes I need to reboot.
Note that I also use the same wireless keyboard and mouse for both computers - each time I change from one computer to the other, I unplug the USB that controls them and plug it in the computer I will use.
I think that the problem is related to the HDMI, not the keyboard/mouse usb - but I am not sure.
Needless to say that it is very annoying and I cant keep restarting the LT each time I move from one to the other.
I checked event viewer to see what causes this and these are the relevant messages:
I was installing Windows 8 at my desktop pc.Suddenly power cut occured and it caused the compute to shut down.Then when I restarted my pc again a messege appeared saying that the installation has been corrupted and it can't be continued and it doesn't log on.After that when I tried to re-install Windows 8 the setup got stuck at the "setup is starting" window.I waited overnight for it to go and the installation to start.But it doesn't happen.I have tried to re-install several times but the same problen happens again and again.So neither I can log into my computer now nor I can re-install windows.I don't know what to do.
Following a recent Windows Update, Windows Firewall on my Windows 8 system was disabled. Upon attempting to start the firewall through the services.msc dialog, I receive an error code 1068, informing that the dependency service or group failed to start. After doing some googling to attempt to resolve the issue I found the dependency service, the Base Filtering Engine (BFE) was not active. When attempting to start the BFE service, I am stopped with an error 5, indicating that access is denied.
I am unable to figure out why access to the BFE service should be denied, since this account is the only account on the computer and has administrator privileges. Because of these issues with the firewall, I am unable to access the internet and am creating this thread through a separate laptop computer.
In a potentially related issue, Windows is not "activated", though I had activated it approximately a year earlier. Because of this, I am unable to access my Microsoft Office programs. I believe that I am unable to activate windows due to a lack of internet connectivity caused by the above firewall issue.
My next step is to take the computer into a nearby service depot and pay the requisite charges.
In Windows Event Viewer I'm getting this error: Windows can not easily be started with the error status 0xC00000D4. The problem is that fast startup that is included in windows 8 doesn't work (that's why I get this error) but I can't seem to solve it. My motherboard is Asus P8Z77-V LX
Since a couple of weeks, Windows has started scanning my disk on every boot. It does 1%, 2%, then sits for a while before it jumps to 9%. Then it works itself up to 43%, where it sits for a long while before jumping to 100%. Every time. I'm not having any problems with the system, and I'm not missing any files as far as I know. Why is it doing this and how can I get rid of it?
I went to power up my PC today and after welcome screen the screen started flickering and no icons or anything was on the screen except start tray which only had start button, touch keyboard button and address bar, none of which were responding.
I managed to launch task manager through ctrl-alt-delete (that didn't flicker, but taskmgr did). I launched cmd through taskmgr and managed to stop the flickering by terminating endless stream of svchost.exe processes. Couple of seconds after I do this, BSoD appears giving 0xc000021a error. Msconfig can't configure the PC to boot in safe mode. What do I do?
When installing something and the software doesn't ask for a reboot during installation, do I really need to reboot the computer? For me it's an old habit because so many people say that problems can occur if you don't reboot after installing something.
One would like to think that later versions of Windows, especially Windows 8, can handle software installs without a reboot. Why I have to, or don't have to reboot my computer after I've installed something?
I have three Autohotkey exe files in my appdata Startup folder of my laptop but they do not get started when Windows starts. Those same three files on my desktop in the same place start and run just fine. Each machine has the same version of Windows 8, Home Premium 64 build 9200.
If I open the Startup folder and click on any one of the files they start and run just fine.
In the registry for the desktop those three files appear in startup folder but not in laptop. Am almost sure that is the problem but don't have a clue what to do about it.
On both machines, Yankee Clipper III runs at start without me having to put it in either of my appdata Startup folders. I guess the installer took care of it for me.
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. I think this was "Application information" service.
The problem is that now I can't run app called Turbo Service Manager to backup, services.msc, regedit, elevated cmd to use "net start", msconfig, even *.reg files won't launch. I can't launch Safe Mode through metro because my USB mouse and keyboard disconnects at the moment I should choose "4".
The problem is that every now and again (30-60 minutes of use) my computer appears to freeze, EX: the screen is fixed and I cant move the cursor and nothing on the screen changes, the PC does not seem to react to keyboard input: CTRL+SHFT+ESC for example. I have noticed at least once (while playing a game) that the sound that was playing when it occurs tends to loop.
When this happens all I can do is switch the PC off from the Power Source - wait 10 seconds and replug and boot. If I try to boot without unplugging from the Power Source - the PC fails to boot asking me to put in the Windows Disk.
This issue occurs in different types of use, sometimes when I am playing 3D games, sometimes watching youtube or even reading the BBC news. No events are logged which give indication to what is happening.
SECONDLY: On some occasions when I leave my PC idle - I come back an hour later and it has rebooted itself (No BOSD Logged) to the Boot Failure Menu.
I have had one blue screen in the past 2 weeks (DPC Watchdog Violation) which seems to point to my SSD, but I cant figure out how to fix it - or if that is a secondary issue. Unfortunately as my SSD is only 64 GIG when i did get the BOSD, it didnt store it due to the space remaining on the disk (16 GB).
I have tried to attach my system event viewer (Cleared prior to this latest incident) but the uploader says its an invalid file .
Additional Notes OS: Windows 8.1 (Installed on Release Day, Never had problems with 8.0) GFX: Nvidia 550 TI Disks: SSD (Crucial M4 64 GB) (OS Install), 1TB (Hard Drive storing games and files on software partitions) 8GB Memory (tried reseating) PSU: 700 WATT
I know the issue isn't heat related as I have monitored this. I think the problem may have started a week back when I installed the latest NVIDIA Drivers - I have since uninstalled and reinstalled them, all my PC Drivers are up to date. to reduce load on GFX I have unplugged my main monitor.
I have run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Windows Defender (My AV), RogueKiller, TDSKiller - several times, no viruses/rootkits, the occasional ad tracking on SuperAntiSpyware probably due to internet browsing.
My HP Windows 8 laptop started going very slow so I restarted via the power settings. When it restarted it did an update, though it didn't say "update and restart". When it started again and went to desktop it went slow again and I got a "windows is not responding" (or something along those lines) message, then the screen went black, I left it for a few minutes but it stayed black. The cursor was still there and if I right clicked it showed the menu.
After this I did a hard restart and attempted to go into recovery mode, it didn't go the and when I got to desktop I got the same message again, this time the desktop had the usual white highlight when something isn't responding, but still required a hard restart.
I am now on the third time and it seems to be working, I am doing a full computer scan. What I want to know is why it would do such a thing?
If all else fails it's under warranty, but being a student I have a lot of work to do so can't really afford to be without the laptop.
My pc just started crashing a few days ago. I will try to be brief because guess what you all really need to see is the zip file. I have tried a few things to work with this code 41 kernel and I am not sure what is causing it. I am mostly crashing it seems when I try to use windows features/tools. It cant seem to complete any recovery etc tools before crashing. I have attached this file...
I had a problem with my laptop in that the disk use went to 100% and then the screen started blinking and I couldn't click on anything. After a reinstall of the OS it worked the same as new for about an hour but now the disk use climbs to 100% even when a new tab is opened and it stays at the max for a short time. The laptop becomes unresponsive during this time also.
So I was using my computer the other day and suddenly my clickpad started tracking very poorly. Before it used to be accurate when it was tracking my finger, however now it jumps around the screen when I move my finger around on it and it takes a full second before the clickpad translates initial input to the mouse. If I put my finger on the trackpad and start moving it the mouse will jump to the location where the pointer should be and will not show the track that the pointer took. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and I am having the same problem. I have restarted the system multiple times and it has still not resolved the issue. I cannot click on anything due to the insane inaccuracy of the trackpad.
