    Windows 8 Installation Issue


    Currently, I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I want to upgrade to Windows 8 then I got an error when booting Windows 8 from USB. It say something like this:

    "Your PC needs to be repaired
    .........
    .........
    Error code: 0xc0000001
    .......

    Press Enter to retry
    .......
    ....."

    It show that after the MSI logo.

    Motherboard: MSI Z87 G45 Gaming

    I had the exact same error on one of my upgrades... after various attempts, only option was to replace the HDD.

    - BTW. Even Paragon running in WinPE couldn't read the disk properly (the crunching noise was audible so that was conclusive enough to not bother trying anything else)

    Hope you have better luck, however.
