    @theog,,, But doing this would result in losing all my datas in the HDD.Which is a thing I don't want to do if it's not the last option left.

    You have data you don't want to lose? It would of been nice if you had of mentioned that before I spent 40 minutes looking for a way for you to strip your hard drive so you could do a fresh install. What did you think was going to happen if you reinstalled win. 8?
