    cant Install win 8, "your pc needs reapair.. ntoskrnl.exe"


    Hi there and Happy holidays!

    Im trying to install windows 8x64 on a laptop with windows 7x32, I know about the impediments but im trying to make a "clean install" and no an "upgrade"...

    ive try with a DvD and with a usb, but on both i get the same error,

    "Recovery

    Your PC neds to be repaired

    The operating system couldn`t be loaded because the kernel is missing or contains errors.

    file: \windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    Error code: 0x0000098

    YouŽll need to use recovery tools..."

    The thing is: I want to format the disk "C:" erasing all previous win7X32 files and make a "clean install" of win8x64, how do i do that?

    thanks in advance for the help!!!

    PD: can I format the partition whit ubuntu, and then install win8 "normally"??
    PD2:sorry for the poor english haha.

    You should be able to format and erase the drive with the install disc or usb. Follow the instructions here.

    but that would format all the disk and no just the partition right? :/

    Use Partition Wizard Home Edition available for download here. You can format each/any partition (as well as other actions) as needed. Back up all data you wish to keep of course, just in case of unlikely trouble.

    I thought you wanted to wipe the whole drive? But what jhawksone said if you want to only format a specific partition.
