Have you read the manual that came with the laptop.
Look through it till you get to the section where it says factory restore procedure.

You have a hidden part of the hard drive that holds an image of windows 8 when things go wrong.

The factory restore mode uses this.
To re install your version of windows.

It`s a shame because most people just toss the manual to one side, that is half the problem. Always read the manual it`s there for a reason.

If you had read it you would of known what to do to recover the drive.
And re install your version of windows on the laptop again.

Manual=Read.

The message it`s self point to two things, the hard drive has failed.
Or in some way the boot able partition of the drive/ with windows 8 on it has become corrupted. F.Y.I
