    Error 0xc0000225 always at Booting


    I recently bought a Samsung Laptop with Windows 8 already installed. It's been fine for a few days but yesterday I was told that it is a good idea to partition my drives. So I did that. Then I realized I needed more space on my newly created drive. So, I downloaded EASEUS Partition Manager to add more space to my newly created drive. So, I made the changes and my computer needed to restart. Then, it showed that the EASEUS Partition Manager was doing its thing. So I left it to do it work. But when I came back to check on it, there was a BSoD. So then I restarted again and now apparently something screwed up and everytime I boot it shows an error 0xc0000225 and says I need to insert my installation CD into it and select repair disc. But I didn't receive the Windows 8 disc as it came pre-installed. I searched the internets and even asked my colleagues but I'm not getting any useful or helpful. Is there anyway out of this mess? Thanks.

    Well, now's a bad time to remind you to make a copy of the recovery partition using the OEM utility. Right now there aren't any official (legal) download locations for Windows 8 ISOs outside of the Microsoft upgrade center (which isn't free), MSDN or TechNet (subscribers only, again not free), and volume license sites for corporate customers (again, not free). You might get some love from your OEM that sold you the PC, or if you have a friend or a colleague who has a DVD with Windows 8 on it you can borrow to repair your PC (just make sure it's the right edition).

    And partitioning your drives on a laptop is actually not necessarily a good idea - not sure who would have told you that. Generally, with laptops you replace the DVD drive in the second bay with a second HDD if you need extra space. I understand the whole if the OS fails you don't lose your data, but since Vista the installation or repair process from the Windows installation DVD or USB simply overwrites files, and your data is kept intact. If the drive itself fails, all partitions are gone anyway. With a laptop, best to get a very large second laptop hard disk drive (as you aren't likely to use the DVD drive much, if at all), and keep good backups of it. That way if something dies, you have backups, and you haven't screwed up your installation of Windows to do so either.
