My HDD has this problem upon booting.
Error code: 0xC0000225, file:\windows\system32\winload.efi
I dont know what is this means
I used my usb drive to refresh/repair my laptop G75VW and this was the result.
In refresh mode: the drive where windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again.
In Reset mode: A required drive partition is missing.

How would I repair this? I was not able to make an system image on the drive. My G75VW equip with windows 8 ver.
If I buy another HDD do I have to buy again another OS? How would I download all my drivers on my system back. I put my old
spare HDD and reformat to NTFS and try to put a another OS windows 7 but my laptop does not saw my disk and it goes
back to system bios set-up, try to put Ubunto OS just to know if my disk drive is working or not, and found my ubunto disk
but it says white listed and nothing happens.

I take out the HDD on my laptop and connected to my other pc to check the disk using scandisk, My pc found some errors
and after my pc says my drive is ready to be used, As of now I leave as it is and hoping somebody would help me to get this
problem off.

My second HDD Bay is lock, I dont know how it happens, I check on my system boot/ Bios set up menu and could not find
any options to enable it. anybody try to help me please to re enable it also.

please help and I thanks to everyone whose reading this mgs.
