    Problem during installation - error code 0xc0000034


    Hello,

    I've just installed Windows 8 (from usb) on my brand new HP laptop and everything worked fine. But I didn't partition hard drive as I wanted, so I decided to install it again.

    During the 2nd installation, the keyboard wasn't working (don't know why). So, when I was supposed to make partitions again, I deleted every partition and tried to make new ones, but I couldn't 'cause of the keyboard. So I just exited from the installation and turned off the computer.

    Then I tried to boot the system from usb again, but all I could see was a blue screen with a message that my computer is damaged and needs to be repaired. There was also an error code 0xc0000034. And now everytime I turn it on, there's only the blue screen with no other options.

    Any suggestions what to do?
    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to EightForums.

    Did you boot the USB Pen drive in UEFI mode?

    Thank you for the welcome.

    I don't know, I just choosed the USB boot option in BIOS and that's it.

    Update: Problem solved! The keyboard was locked somehow, so I connected an USB keyboard, entered BIOS and started the installation all over again.
