So I was trying to install Fedora on my computer and ended up messing my computer up. Partitioned my hard drive and installed it to the partition but when I restarted it, the no boot device available showed up. I was able to load Fedora by going through Legacy boot. And on Fedora I looked at my hard drive and it still says there is a 887mb partition which should be windows 8, I just dont know how to get to it. This happening shows I don;t know too much of the technical side of computers, but I will do my best to answer any questions from anyone willing to help. Thanks

Note: Please backup the data as this process leads to complete data loss.
Below are the steps to perform PC Restore in Windows 8:
Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any questions.
Thanks for the fast response.
I reset the BIOS to the default settings, but when I restart the computer it still pops up as "no boot device available"
then it's says sata0 installed Sata 1 installed sata2 none sata3 none
So unfortunately I can't get into windows at all
Please try and run diagnostics on the system to confirm hardware functionality. Here are the steps:
If the test pass, it is possible that you might need to re-install Windows to fix the issue. Please back up the data as this process leads to data loss.
Please reply if you have any questions.
Please share the system's Service Tag and Owner's Name with me via private message (click my username and then click Send a Private Message). I'll review the details and check what best can be done to arrange for the discs.
Awaiting your response!
