My pc won't boot help me please.

#1
Hello everyone, i have windows8 installed on my lappy but i cant boot it anymore well what i did was i just changed boot drive from 100mb system reserved partition to c: drive by using easy bcd since then my pc refuses to boot may be thats the boot mgr issue which was moved to c drive or i might have done something wrong. when i turn on my pc just a blink appears i can boot from installation dvd and tried fixing bcd using command prompt with fix mbr,fixboot,rebuildbcd command. nothing worked what should i do? i even tried installing new Os but installation doesn't complete reboots and same blink appears instead of continuing Os installation.
should i use easy recovery essential ?
is there any other way to fix bootloader?or should i wipe the hard drive and install Os from scratch?will it recreate boot mgr files or fix bootloader?
im new to this forum any suggestion is appreciated

Windows 8 must boot from the system partition (that's where the boot files are)
Windows 8 doesn't actually boot or shut down when you tell it to. It secretly hibernates and resumes, and you have locked it into a loop where it's continually trying to resume hibernation from the wrong place.

Can you force the PC into a cold boot by resetting the CMOS and going into the BIOS setup utility and resetting the system partition as the primary boot location ?
