Assuming you've tested the hardware for faults (Memtest, Stress test etc) I'd guess that the installation medium is boned. But depending where it BSOD's it could be different. If it BSOD's when windows starts to look at available installtion drives it might be that you need to install third party SATA drivers or change the sata mode to IDE during the installation and install the drivers after.
I did a google for you social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/1b2045b9-7fef-47f0-aea3-1e185fb7544c/fix-winloadexe-is-missing-or-corrupt-no-its-not
Are you trying to dualboot by installing windows after Linux? It's better to do it the other way around as Windows will screw around with the GRUB bootloader whereas linux will natively detect another OS and offer an installation alongside it

No, not trying to dual boot, just got a new hard drive and yeah, ive been having all these problems. The BSOD comes after the logo for windows 8 finishes loading, AKA I don't get to any any sort of menu or anything at all before it BSOD's. Oh, and it is a 64x cpu and 64x windows, running 8gb's of ram that's working fine.
#31075 - billybong (03/20/2015) [-]
okay, well go into the bios, change the AHCI or SATA mode to IDE (same thing, worded differently by different manufacturers). If you have RAID this will temporarily disable it, which will only matter if you're installing to a RAID array
Then try booting the installation.
If it works, it means Win 8 doesn't have your Sata drivers built in. Also if the disk is 3tb or bigger, Windows' built in sata drivers for some intel storage controllers may not work.
Also since you recently put in a new disk.... just double check everything is in firmly.... couldn't hurt to do a memtest (even though linux mint was working before)
But tbh I'm running out of ideas. You mentioned 3 different installation mediums, they were from 3 different sources right? not the same ISO burnt 3 times or anything?

Sorry for the late reply, forgot I posted the issue here. As it turns out, windows was trying to install the winloader.exe to the wrong hard drive, after several different attempts to install, It decided to load one, and I was able to get to CMD to fix it. thus, the computer is now working. Very strange all in all, but I got it fixed, thanks for the help.

It was pretty great 4 years ago or so. Somewhat outdated at this point, but hey, it's a good deal for a broken laptop.
