Q: Windows 8 Boot issue Error: 0xc000000f

My Asus laptop will not boot up. 

It gives me this message 

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:  
1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer. 
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next". 
3.Click "Repair your computer."  If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.  

Status: 0xc000000f  

Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors." 

When I Put the Disc in, it just goes back to this screen, then after a few minutes the computer will restart and display the same message.
