    I think I am just going to delete this partition, recreate it, format it and reinstall the whole thing from scratch. bummer!!!!!!

    One more question: If I do a scratch install and "it works", can I create an image and use it for an update on another HD?

    OK, it is working now. All I can say is DON'T UPGRADE USING WIN8.

    Thanks for telling me to create a system repair disk. It just saved my butt.


    Thanks Clint

    You're welcome Clint.

    Don't forget about creating restore points, backups, and system images as needed.

    Is there a place to download a system repair disk to burn to dvd? I cannot create the system disk because I do not have a recovery partition. This was removed manually after I made my HP recovery disks. I can restore the entire system to factory defaults but all I want to do is re-fix the MBR because I need to get rid of Grub. ( of course Windows loads fine under Secure Boot and UEFI) I had forgotten the the HP recovery disks do not function as repair disks so I forgot to make those also.

    I also read that if you have an HP system with preinstalled Windows 8, you will not have the ability to create a system repair disk from Windows as the above shows, only the HP recovery disks. I don't know how true that is because i didn't try it before removing the recovery partition.

    Perhaps another option is to get a Windows 8 install disk and use the recovery options in there? ( I do have access to my product key)

    Will DaRT 8 (Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset) running from a dvd do this? Microsoft DaRT - Diagnostics and Recovery Tools, Repair | TechNet
