I have a PC running 8 64- bit (pre-loaded) on a UEFI MB; a few days ago I had to hard restart it after I let it sleep for a few hours and it wouldn't wake up.
At first there was no signs of life (other than power); wouldn't turn on the monitor.
I removed my aftermarket video card and tried again with the built- in graphics.
Win 8 tried "Automatic Repair" and said it couldn't, and that the logfile @ "c:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt" would be of help.
Through a command prompt I went there and got some info:
BOOT Manager failed to find OS Loader
Repair Action= File Repair
Error code= 0x4001
Repair Action= Boot Conf data store repair
Error code= 0x2
I've tried everything that I can think of to fix this with no success; can anyone tell me how to find my Product Key for Win 8, that I believe is baked into UEFI/ BIOS so that I can D/L or access the correct Win 8 .iso to try repairing this boot issue like that? Or does anyone have any other suggestions?
