Please, I know this is a common error, but I`ve been working on it for 20 hours, I`m desperate! I have an exam in 3 days and I need my computer! I`ve searched for everysolution I could find but none seems to work. Just please bear with me!
I have an Asus ATTVM, 64-bit Intel i7 processor. I had installed windows 8, had it for almost 2 weeks, than it just stopped booting and giving me the BSOD. Intel Rapid Storage technology could have something to do with it. tried recovering with windows 8 windows 7 and windows xp disk but they just tell me that the disks, partitions are blocked. Or that they`re GPT and not MBR.
I installed Linux Mint, and everything went fine but when I restart it gives me that error. In bios I can-t see and add my hardrive as an option, just dvd and usb.
I tried repairing the boot with boot-repair, and everything seemed to go right http://paste2.org/p/2666886
but it still doesn-t work In bios it sais Windows boot manager (driver not present).
I tried assigning the boot flag wit gparted but it doesn`t work.
I`m not interested to going back to windows, Linux Mint seems perfect for me, but I can`t get it to boot and I haven`t slept in a long time
