I login to windows 8 Pro as administrator on my computer. When i attempt to do a refresh the system settings because of app crashes and go into recovery mode, Windows says that my hard drive is locked and I need to unlock it, and “Windows cannot be installed on GPT drive, only on MBR” error. But I haven’t setup bit-locker encryption. Now all apps and tiles are missing. How can I fix the locked Hard drive issues?
* Re-format your hard drive and do a “clean-install” Windows 8 OS.
* Another method. Insert the Windows 8 disc, Boot into “Repair your computer” and select Troubleshoot > advanced options. Go into the MS-DOS mode by choosing Command Prompt, type the command to run:
BCDboot c:/windows /s c: /l en-us (have fixed the wrong command)
BCDboot c:\windows /s c: /l en-us
That should fix the issues and works for me.
