When I boot up on my hp computer i get Recovery A required device can't be accessed. I looked in bios and it is set to UEFI and I tried legacy mode but no difference. I get the same error. I put it back to UEFI. I booted with WIndows 8.1 dvd but drive is locked and ran chkdsk /r but it found no problems on the hard drive.

Boot the setup DVD, then press shift f10. A command prompt will appear. Fire
bcdedit
what's the output?

I realized this drive is corrupted and I am just going to re-install windows 8. I ran bcdedit and everything else and I see that the windows directory and program files are gone.

You need to get a new drive (I assume you know that). A drive with a corrupted OS can usually be recovered in some way. So get a new drive here.

Wait.
It is rather unusual that the windows directory and program files are gone while other directories are there. Where did you see that? What exactly did you see?

Hard drive was corrupted. I formated the drive and that fixed the problem.
