    Starting problem

    Hi guys, I have a problem with my Windows 8 which has been puzzling me for several days now.

    When I turn on my computer, I have an error message (the famous BSOD), which is followed by a screen anouncing me the automatic repair, but this gives me nothing.

    I've tried to reinstall Windows 8 using a USB flash drive and with a DVD but neither did work, by that I mean that the screen remains black. I've even tried with an external hard drive, but I get an error 0xc000000f and cannot install the OS.

    I thought it was a hardware problem, but I was sucessfully able to launch Ubuntu from an USB flash drive, and from there access to the partition D of my hard drive. However it was impossible to mount the OS partition.

    I've tried to use the Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper but as for the installation of Windows 8 with a USB flash drive or a DVD, I only get a black screen.

    I really have no idea of what is happening here, so that's why I'm calling for help in these pages.

    Thanks for the help in advance, and sorry for the eventual English mistakes Also I hope I've been clear enough.

    PS : My laptop is an ASUS UX32VD-R4002V, just in case.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    error 0xc000000f is that the file doesn't exist.
    I'd suggest starting with these free, bootable diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
