I planned to install Windows 8 in Local Disk D: where my some programs and files inside. I see also a Unknown Folder, when I open it. It says that
I don't have permissions to open it. The folder has a weird All Caps Name. Like a Serial Code. After Uninstalling all programs on my Drive D.
I format it. And I think, This is where the problems starts.
I mount the Windows 8 ISO Installation and run it. And install it on my Partition 2 (Drive D). Wait some few minutes. And Taa-Daa.
My computer restarts. And restarts. and restarts. And then Windows 8 ask me to tweak some basic settings Incl. Personalize, Security, Account. Etc.
And then I use it for an hour. Everything is going so smooth. No problems.
The next day I found an bug in my Windows 8 we're Store ask me to update the Games, News, Finances. Even though I don't have News and Finances
Meanwhile. I tried to go back to Windows 7 to fetch my files and bring it in my Windows 8. After booting up this what I see:

or damage, or that might be malicious software from an Unknown source.
If you have a Windows Installation disc, Insert the disc and restart your computer. Click
"Repair your computer" and then choose a recovery tool.
Otherwise, to start Windows so you can investigate further, press the ENTER Key to
display the boot menu, press F8 for Advances Boot Options and select Last Know
Good. If you understand why the digital signature cannot be verified and want to
start Windows without this file, temporarily disable driver signature enforcement.
File : \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Status : 0xc0000428
Info : The digital Signature for this file couldn't be verified.
I didn't know what going on. I checked the Windows 7 drive using File Explorer in Windows 8. But the files
are there. The only problem is I can't access it. I want my Windows 7 back. I still need it. Is there any
way to fix this problem without using that installation disk (I didn't have that) and that pressing F8
to access Advanced Boot Options to select Last Know Good. (It didn't work for me)
Please help me get back my Windows 7 without losing my files. Help me please.
