I just finished building a gaming rig, and i installed windows 8.1. Everything went well, until i reset the machine and got the error 0xc00000e. All atempts to fix the error failed, so i assumed there was an error in the os installation or in the harware. I cleaned both of my drives, clean slate. Now Im trying to install my os again, but right when i turn on my pc, it goes straight to the bios, without giving me a chance to use my installation disc. Whats going on? Any help would be amazing!

That worked for allowing me to load the os, but the 0xc00000e error came again afterwards

Sounds like you may have a corrupted boot loader... Maybe do the reset cmos again and try to re-install the OS.

You can also try:


1.Boot from your install disc


2.Click on Repair your computer after you go through language, time etc.


3.Select your Windows installation drive, which is usually C:\, and click Next


4.Choose Command Prompt when the System Recovery Options box appears


5.Write the following command and press Enter afterwards:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

I wrote the command and it still gives me the error on boot. i can log on by holding F11 and choosing which drive to boot off of, but no matter which one i choose, once im in and i hit reset or turn it off and on, i still get the error message.
