Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

    I'm evaluating a windows 8 gateway. it is unable to boot. automatic repair doesn't work, no go on refresh, there is no media for re-install. no restore points. just to see, I am checking out what diskpart says. disk 0 online, size-0, free-o bytes. the pc had been dropped. I reseated the hard drive to rule that out. is this drive dead? disk 1 is 14gb, but I'm thinking that the 16 gb flash drive that is plugged into it.
