    Deleted Winsxs folder now BSOD Critical process died


    First of all Hi to all me just joined this forum

    from last few months I was having prob with my long ago installed windows 8 64 bit first RTM release I think

    I was not using it as primary OS so I did not tried to repair it early so yesterday I bot that os up

    the main prob is it sometimes bot as normal os and some time bot as windows workspace

    I have no clue why it sometimes boot as windows workspace with that starting msg keep ur usb plugged in

    so after few attempts i boot it with normal and tried to update windows 8.1 from windows 8 and it show shows you need to install all your update in windows update so I checked updated it was nearly 2GB with 111 IMP update and 1 optional graphic driver update (on board ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics )

    and free space left on drive was nearly 3gb so I just run my computer whole night for let it be updated

    after next day it won't booting up and stuck on "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer" loop

    after tried sometimes with safe boot

    it turned on

    after it startup I tried to run windows update troubleshooter and solved 6 prob with it

    then I show to left space on drive it was 200 mb then analysed the disk and found winsxs was eating 20 gb space of 39 gb partition so I boot into mini xp via usb and deleted winsxs's all folder

    now to have bsod of Critical process died

    I found there is MEMORY.dmp file of 3.5 gb

    and bluescreenview identify bsod

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL networx.sys & ntoskrnl.exe

    I just want to boot into os and backup and rediscover the programme data and browser session and will

    reinstall win 8.1 with update 1

    The Winsxs folder (called SidebySide) is the true container for all your system files.
    The ones in the Windows 'System' folder are just hard links to the real files.

    Perhaps DISM can restore all these files again - look over the tutorials.

    Otherwise you probably need to refresh Windows.

    thanks for reply

    but how to use DISM ?

    from another OS or using windows 8.1 install usb disk ?

    I tried with repair windows's cmd but dism is not recongize commend there

    another try was to mount D:\Windows\System32 cmd.exe (win 8) with cmd of C:\Windows\System32 (win7)

    safe boot also not working

    I'm not sure what to try next - boot the install device and try to run a repair.
    Try your advanced boot options and other recovery features.
    If none work, try to boot using some other tool to salvage your documents and data (like a Linux or whatever) and then re-install.

    as I told bro it is not booting so whatever sf tool will collect is from win 7 current running os

    however there is 1 minidump created nd 1 3.5gb memory dump

    There are enough signs here that I have to wonder about this installation. Should this be a pirated copy of Windows, please be aware that we may not be able to fix it (as the hacks that were done to activate it will cause the OS to behave differently than we expect it to). If that's the case, our efforts to help may just waste your time. Secondly, the forum rules prohibit assisting with pirated software - so the topic would be closed if that is the case.

    Please provide the MGADiag report according to these instructions (from this post: Product Key Number - Uninstall and Deactivate in Windows - Page 3 - Windows 7 Help Forums ):
    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :
