    Solution for Windows 8 reset error

    I successfully installed the Windows 8 OS in my system without any issues and it was working fine, recently I just tried to do a reset on it and now it’s not starting up at all. It just gives the error message as “Windows could not finish configuring the system, to attempt to resume configuration restart the computer” and when I do a restart it just shows up the same error message. What can be done now?

    Re: Solution for Windows 8 reset error

    There is some mismatch happened internally where your Windows 8 OS is not able to move on further in resetting your PC back to normal which might be caused because of various reasons and one of the major reason is that your PC might have restarted during the reset process. Now the perfect fix for this problem is to run a Automatic repair. Just follow the steps given below,

    STEP 1: Load your Windows 8 setup in your PC again.

    STEP 2: When you get the welcome screen -> Select Repair your computer.

    STEP 3: From next page -> Select Advanced options.

    STEP 4: Select Troubleshoot -> Startup repair and just go on with the on screen instructions.

    STEP 5: Restart your system once after the process is completed.

    Now your system should startup without any further issues but if you still face the same then it’s better to go ahead and do a fresh installation for Windows 8 by backing up all the critical data’s.

    Re: Solution for Windows 8 reset error

    Hello Friend,
    As it was critical problem faced by many users in windows 8 or previous versions also but microsoft also can able to find the exact cause for the Issue but they stated that "if os contains a registry key which was higher than 8kB" and also from other factors.

    As its probelm caused by Hotfix of Microsoft which was corrupted.

    The only way to fix the issue was to make SYSTEM REPAIR by Inserting OS DVD/CD and their by TROUBLE SHOOT application of os.

    But, I am not sure this was going to work if not then re-install the windows 8.

    Thank you.
