Here is some info on fixing a corrupted UEFI Partition:
Firstly, boot from a Windows 8 recovery drive (CD/DVD/USB). If you don't have a recovery drive (and this is likely because most new machines don't come with one), then you will either have to install the drive into another Windows 8 machine or obtain a Windows 8 recovery drive, or boot from the recovery partition of the boot drive (If this option works at this point). Don't even bother with the automated recovery process, it will not work as it cannot find a Windows partition.
  1. You will need to choose the language and time settings.
  2. Choose 'Repair Your Computer'.
  3. Choose 'Troubleshooting'.
  4. Choose "Advanced Options'.
  5. Next choose 'Command Prompt'.
Next, we're going to use the DISKPART tool to verify that the UEFI partition has a drive letter assignment.
Enter 'DISKPART' (Enter)
(In this test case we removed all other drives except the boot HDD and DVD, so we know the disk 0 is our boot HDD)
DISKPART> sel disk 0
Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
DISKPART> list vol
There was no drive letter assignment to our UEFI partition (volume 3) so we need to assign a drive letter.
DISKPART> sel vol 3
Volume 3 is the selected volume.
1). If you know that you have a extra drive letter available use it here, otherwise skip to 2.
DISKPART> assign letter=E:
2). If you are unsure what the drive chain is or if you don't know what drive letters are avalable use:
DISKPART> assign
If all went well, DiskPart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point. You can verify that a drive letter was assigned by "DISKPART> list vol" again.
Exit DiskPart tool (Enter EXIT)
Next, we need to change to the boot folder on the UEFI volume.
Change to the UEFI volume into the boot folder. Use drive E: here or whatever drive letter was assigned above.
cd /d E:\Boot\
Now we will need to enter three command lines to repair the BCD store.
For MBR drives: (Drives < 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /fixmbr
  3. bootrec /rebuildmbr
For GPT drives: (Drives > 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /rebuildbcd
That's it, if all went well the BCD store should be repaired, and the system will once again boot.

How to install a new operating system that is not functioning correctly.

Alright, it is not too hard.
This is a tip for a windows computer, this will not be the same on a Macintosh.
1) Take the installation disk of that operating system and put it into the disk drive.
2) Attempt to boot the computer
3) As soon as it starts try using the different function keys (E.G. Like the F12 key, that is the most common one, it may take several tries of turning the computer on-and-off to get the right key.)
4) You should be at the boot menu.
5) Use the up and down arrow keys to choose the "CD/DVD/CD-RW DRIVE"
6) Choose to install windows.
7) If you are careful you can try to get information off the hard drive by using the repair.
8) Choose to re-install windows
9) It will be like when you just got the computer (Maybe not because it won't have any of the Add-ons they usually put in)

Hi! I need help with my computer. I use a seagate ST380811AS hard disk in my desktop computer. The problem now, is that everytime I start my computer "A non system disk" appears on the monitor or...

1 Remove any floppy disks or bootable CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives or other bootable media from the computer. Attempt to restart the computer again. Proceed if you continue to receive the error.
2 Restart the computer again. Press the key required to enter your BIOS setup. (The monitor usually displays a "Press [key] to access BIOS" right after restarting your computer. Press the key shown on your screen.)
3 Navigate to the "Boot Options" or "Advanced" menu by using the arrow keys. (The precise menu terms will vary according to your computer and BIOS type.)
4 Select the hard disk that contains your operating system (usually C:) as your primary boot device. Select your CD/DVD drive, your floppy drive or another hard disk as your secondary boot device.
5 Save and exit the BIOS. Proceed with the next step if you see the "Non-system disk error" message again.
6 Restart the computer. Return to the BIOS' "Boot Options" screen by following the steps above, then set the "CD/DVD drive" as the primary boot device and the hard disk as the secondary boot device. Save and exit the BIOS.
7 Insert your Windows installation disc. Restart the computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Follow the on-screen prompts to reinstall Windows.
8 Replace your hard disk drive if you cannot install Windows.

Can u tell me how to install windows xp in Compaq Presario CQ42 173TU?

First of all you need a Boot-able disk with windows xp operation system on it ..If you do not have one you can download a great XP sp2 professional from here ..using a U torrent downloaded for torrent files...and after that burn the image file you download on a disk using NERO..and just inserting the disk into the writer and doable click on the file..
But remember you need to have Nero installed so that the ISO file to be associated with the burning program (Nero) and open the image file with it automatically ..In this way you will be sure to end up with a boot-able disk ..
for that you need these:
the u torent program for download..
the Nero program ...(I prefer Nero 7 instead newer ones ..cause it sees the Image files and associate itself on them ..thing that newer ones do not do ..)
and of course the torrent file where to get the windows..
REMEMBER : on the folder there is a key for the product ...wrote it down somewhere cause you will need it during the process)
Do not let yourself fooled by the big download button ...its just a spam on the download this torrent for to open the download..and will ask you to associate the opening of the file and choose the u torrent will ask to confirm and start the download ..after that you will find the download director in My documents/downloads...

If you followed my instructions ...and downloaded all ..and burned using Nero 7 but automatically by dowble clicking the file ended up with a Boot-able cd with windows 7 on it ..that it is recognized like genuine and updates itself to the end of glory ...
the next thing you have to do is ..either go to BIOS setting (in your case by pressing F10 on start cause it is a HP device...and in there look for BOOT manager and change the BOOT order to boot from cd first ...and save with F10 and confirm with enter ..
or ,,just insert the disk ...and press F12 to display the boot menu ..and choose with the up /down arrows boot from cd ..and .remember get into the boot menu you have to press that key a second after the start of the computer ..or even press it repeatedly so to not miss..
after the boot from cd will be asked to [press any key to boot from cd a key ..anyone ..and the dance begins..
Follow the instructions on the bottom of the screen and to guide you further ..I link you to a page with explaining step by step of how to do it ...
You can even print them after download or copy have in stumble on something you are not sure ...
Remember ..there is nothing you can do wrong top the computer be bold and trust your logic..cause you can always repeat from the start again and again until you will do it right ...the only thing you can loose are the data on the computer case you have some ..personal ones....I suggest to store them before start on some other computer or ..on a memory stick or disks..
Here is the other instructions link ...but from the point I brought you it s just common sense....the only issue will be after the first restart ..and at the end

I start the laptop, and a folder with a ? shows up

The folder with a ? is telling you the Mac can't find a startup disk. It sounds like the hard drive is bad. Put your restore disk in the dvd drive and turn the computer on. When you hear the chime push and hold the "c" key. It will boot of the DVD.

After you choose your language, go up the the tools menu and choose " Disk utility" You should see your Hard drive then the DVD. Choose analyze disk and see if it passes. If it does, then choose it as the start up disk and re-boot.
