    My Computer works great ! but ownly if I instal a game the game itself works great but after a 15 min 25 min its freezes and I restart my computer and BAM ! select a propper boot device..... And lucky after Reboot 30 times I get to acces lucky my desktop and quickly delete the game and everything works fine again..

    Wat can I do, please someone help me.

    All so: The recovery isnt working. If I instal a game and the error > select a propper boot device comes and I put the Windows 8 cd in and i try the option Recover or fix then it is saying, partition is on lock. So then I hope my pc is letting me on the desktop so I can deleat the game or I have to instal the whole windows again but that is not a option cause my pc works great.

    The games that caust the select a propper boot device where: Fable Anniversary, GTA 5, Wolfenstein.

    Have you tried doing a Repair install of Windows?

    Check and re-seat cables to disks and check their state of health first. That game is pretty suspicious too. Run AV and antimalware checks. Make sure all drivers are up to date.

    My guess is the game assumes you have an MBR HD. It must be doing something low level to the boot sector.

    See if the games haves W8 versions or a forum where you might find a work-around.

    : Yes we tried Repair but it is saying that: The System is not able to load cause the system is mising a file or its a error > File: \\Windows\system32\winload.exe

    : I checkt all the cables and I allso unpluged the cables of the harddisk that had no windows on it, but it was the same error (select a propper boot device) The is from Torrent but nobody has this problem witht the game. And I checkt if i had a virus but its all cleam.

    : I tries to instal the game on the 4TB hardisk but that didnt work as well, i checkt the forums but I didnt fount nothing about this problem.

    The strangest is, when i try to make a system repair with a date and i save it on a date with a name. And then i put the windows cd in and try to locate a date with the system repair the pc is saying no date can be found so system repair isnt possible.

    Game came from Torrent, perhaps, there is more to the download than what the OP bargained for?
