    Windows 8


    I have a Samsung NP350V4C which has Windows 8 Single Language. I tried to use the Option in Settings\ General\ Remove Everything and Reinstall Windows. It asked me if I would like to remove files only or do a clean reinstall. I selected to do a clean install. The Pc then restarted and an error message appeared on a blue screen:
    RECOVERY
    Your PC needs to be repaired
    The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.
    File: \windows\system32\windload.efi
    Error code:0xc0000001
    You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. if you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.
    I do not have any media discs etc. I have tried to download Windows 8, but failed to have any success.
    what is my next step?
