    Can not access the Windows 8.1 Repair Menu

    Today I did a System Restore using a Back Up that I had made. After I did so I did a restart and tried to access the Windows 8.1 Repair Menu by pressing F9 and I get that a device is not connected and a repair code of OXC0000225 and then asks for the install disk to repair. Now I do not have this but I do have a USB Rescue Disk. I then booted from a Boot Repair USB drive and ran Bootrec /Rebuildbcd, then /fixmbr, then /fixboot. Now I can boot into windows and such but every time that I try to boot to the Repair menu I have to do this to Boot to Windows. I can Restore and reset Windows from within Windows but not in the Main Repair Menu. Also when I try to Refresh it using the USB Boot Drive I get the Windows Install Drive is Locked please Unlock. And when I try to reset I get the Error that the partition does not exist (That is trying to Refresh and Reset from the USB Drive Menu). How do you repair this? And Unlock to Windows Install Drive? I have a ASUS Laptop Q550LF with Windows 8.1 and fully updated. Thanks

    Maybe you can find a 8.1 ISO and try booting to a cd to do your repairs. Or a clean install.

    Dom't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but I got a "225" error also, recently, and none of the repair actions did any good. I must have run Repair at least a half-dozen times, and each time, when I rebooted, I got the "blue screen" again.

    Ended up having to do a full restore from an image backup I had made.

    Yeah it sounds like it's pretty much gonna be a full clean least windows 8 is way better about keeping drivers when you do it then windows 7.
