[SOLVE] windows 8 winlogon.exe error


Recommended Posts


my parition table is 3 parts

c: system reserved

d: system (windows7 )

e: files (my own files)

i split drive d: (using paragon) to install windows 8 on other parition

so my paritition table should be like these:

c: system reserved

d: system (windows 7)

e: system (windows 8 )

f: files (my own files)

now after installing windows 8 on physical machine not on vm with dual boot together with windows 7

i get ann error "winlogon.exe error" there is no disk in the drive :x

upon shutting down my pc

note : this is not malware!!! this is fresh install


hold windows key + R

in the run dialog box type : control panel

go power option

click choose what the power buttons do

make sure you uncheck "turn on fast start up (recommended)"

this error is encounter because windows 8 has a new features fast startup which is available only when you are not using duat boot

if ur parition table is

c: system reserved

d: windows 8

e: other

cos windows 8 place a cache file on system reserved to make ur boot time faster

that's why if you have dual boot with other OS then disable this new features
