    Help: Windows 8 not booting


    I tried running a script when i was having problems connecting to the internet and now, my pc will not boot. Here is the script i tried to run:

    Lets try flushing DNS cache and renewing your IP.

    Flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file ...
    Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

    @Echo on
    pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    attrib -h -s -r hosts
    echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
    attrib +r +h +s hosts
    popd
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    ipconfig /flushdns
    netsh winsock reset all
    netsh int ip reset all
    shutdown -r -t 1
    del %0

    Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

    Your computer will reboot itself.

    This worked? It repaired your Internet connection? This happens to me all the time, I just unplug my router and plug it back in. Windows 8 like to drop the internet connection.

    Windows 8 & Windows 7 Dual Boot


    I dont see ipconfig /registerdns after you flushed it, this can cause your reconnection to take up to 15 minutes or more.

    But it shouldnt be hours, is it running by now?
