Windows 8 Missing Boot Partition

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was in the middle of doing something on my computer when there was a surge, so I had to trip the breaker to put the power back on. When I went to put the computer back on, it didn't even power on. My first guess was that I blew my power supply, I had a extra power supply to check to see if that was the valid reason and indeed it was. This new power supply I had is modular and its also missing some connectors so I was forced to only connect my OS drive. When I went to boot up the computer I was greeted with an error stating that I'm missing some bootloader data. I decided to boot up a repair cd and use the command line to fix the issue. Unfortunately for me it turns out Windows 8 decided to install the boot partition on another hard drive besides the OS drive. Now no command prompt options that I know of will work because there's no partition to fix, What should I do

    I would try the "bootrec" command if you haven't already done so.

    If the old PSU didn't make a loud "pop" sound at the time of the surge, it may work just fine if you replace the internal fuse.  In some PSUs, the fuse is in a proper fuse holder and would be easy to replace.  In others, it is soldered onto the circuit board and wouldn't be so easy to replace.
