    new laptop- no backups, no disc with purchase, BSOD HELP!


    ok ok ok ok ! I am pretty good with computers, so I KNOW that i made such a stupid error, it kind of serves me right, but i still need some kind hand to help me out! PUH-LEASE!

    ASUS r503u 500gb HD preinstalled windows 8: now after playing with my new toy, i noticed that over 300gb of my hd was inaccessible and labeled d:\. so i looked into to what i could do, yup I used that easeus partition master home edition, did exactly what it instructed to do. it says reboot, so we reboot, and TADA BSOD 0xc0000225 ! now asus wants me to fork out $50 for recovery media, microsoft wont help me out either. CAN ANYONE PLEASE tell me how to get it back to normal!

    so far i have been able to download the the windows 8 enterprise trial, and at the windows to install it also has repair your system link. so i click that, no options work other then CMD! how in the hallelujah do i restore or fix through CMD, googled that too, ive also been able to somehow peek in an open file windows for the system image part, everything is there. my os partition, the empty partition i created, the smaller d:\, everything is there. however i couldnt open anything due to permissions. but nothing got deleted so why cant i setup aptio to find BOOT again. im soo upset. PLEASE ANYONE HELP ME!

    by the way im editing to explain that my laptop cant do jack anything atm or i would use that dmp file whatever for yall,also i have no backups because its brand new, like a few days i have had it. it came with nothing as well!

    on recovery console, run diskpart.
    then type list disk.
    Find your hard drive and type select disk=0 (if your drive is disk 0)
    Then type list volume.
    Post me the list of the volumes (capture a photo)
