    winload.exe missing or currupt

    Hi i'm trying to install Windows 8 but am recieving error.

    Your PC needs to be repaired
    windows\system32\boot\winload.exe is missing or currupt

    I have try formatting and reinstalling 7 to see if this fixes the problem but with no joy.
    I have also tried using KillDisk to see if that made a difference but nothing. I would of though reinstalling the OS would have fixed the problem.

    Any help will be greatly appriciated.

    Hello, It seems your boot loader is corrupted, so run the Windows 8 Setup and use “Repair Computer” option
