    How to fix disk read error after installing Windows 8

    I had just finished with installation of windows 8. Now I am getting a Disk read error. This is a fresh setup and how does this disk read error appear on the screen. I want a bit help here to fix the problem. I had tried to check in the control panel if I can find something related to disk. But nothing is available. The system just give me the error when I boot and it is very annoying. I hope the system will not crash with blue screen.

    This type of error appear on those system where Windows 8 is installed on a SSD. Your system is not having a AHCI driver and so you are getting the problem. Because a SSD needs that driver to work.

    You can simply find the driver and install that in your system which will fix the problem. You can find the same drivers on the SSD's official website. Just install that and let me know back if the error is fixed or not.

    Is there any external drive connected to your pc. Any usb or any other storage media. Just disconnect the same and try back. This will be more helpful in fixing the problem.

    The error appear due to any storage media connected to your pc and it is unable to read that. It can be due to missing drive or due to damage storage system.

    So just unplug that first. If still you have error then run your motherboard driver update cd.
