    winload.exe problem


    I have a Windows 7 (32 bit). I installed Windows 8 Developer Preview (64 bit) on other partition, the installation went without error. On boot i got error: "Your PC need's to be repaired....\\Windows\system32\winload.exe.... Press Enter to continiue, F9 to boot other system"
    DVD recorded with the verification. On VirtualBox works. I sereval times reinstall Win 8, i got the same error.

    You'll have to run Startup Repair from the Win8 installation DVD.
    Dunno how well it works in Win8, but in Win7 you had to run it at least 3 times.

    Good luck!

    On Win 8 installation DVD there is not StartUp Repair. Functions: Reset your PC, Refresh your PC, System Restore, System Image Recovery, Automatic Repair

    Me too experiencing this problem. Actually my laptop goes to automatic repair automatically and scans and fixes drives. Here is what you need to do:

    First try to boot to Windows 7 and launch the automatic repair. Windows will ask it to attempt and all you need to do is to follow the on screen instructions.

    Then boot with Windows 8, in GUI boot menu, choose other options, then troubleshoot and then automatic repair. Windows will again scan and fixes drive (it may take hours ). Then finally Windows will reboot and got the things as usual working .

    There is no guarantee that this problem will not occur in future again

    Could you please clarify "First try to boot to Windows 7 and launch the automatic repair." how can I start automatic repair ?


    2."Then boot with Windows 8, in GUI boot menu, choose other options, then troubleshoot and then automatic repair." what other options I have to choose.
