Blue screen errors are now days become very common. we dont have to do a os reinstall for all the blue screen errors. just follow these steps and it will resolve this 0xED blue screen issue.

Step 1 : Boot the computer with Windows Installation Disc

Step 2 : Press ‘ R ‘ in the initial screen and go to recovery console.

Step 3 : Enter 1 for Administrator in most cases

Step 4 : Type ‘ chkdsk /p ‘ and hit enter.

Step 5 : once that is completed type ‘ fixboot ‘ and hit enter.

Step 6 : now type exit

Step 7 : Reboot the computer

Note : if you still have the issue then follow the same steps but instead of ‘ chkdsk / p ‘ use ‘ chkdsk /r ‘ and do the rest. but this command will take 10 mins to 1 hour some times.

  6. yeah you are right. It works perfectly.
    But you can also start your PC from a bootdisk
    Press enter, instead of R to use the recovery console.
    press F8 to accept the agreement,
    Press R to repair the operating System
    As it runs, you will be informed that there was a repair of the OS
    Remove the OS CD whiles your PC is rebooting.

  23. Hello Sir!

    Just saw ur website! Thanks a lot for nice info. I have informed my IT team as well about the issue. but just wondering if this process is not going to work, then it means that my HDD is gone…am I correct?? Please reply ASAP.

    I am very much worried about my important DATA @ HDD.

    • I would recommend you to run hdd diagnostics to decide the hdd has gone bad or not… coz we can’t decide only with this…
      Thanks for reading the blog… 🙂
