0xc000021a windows won't boot on my desktop

Hp Pavillion
My computer came with windows 7 and I got a free upgrade to 8 and everything has been good up until 2 weeks ago.....the computer won't boot. It tells me there's a problem and that it's collecting data and will restart automatically and also has the code 0xc000021a. I can't get it to boot into safe mode and I also can't get past the error screen it just keeps trying to boot up. What can I do

Here is a guide on HOW TO FIX THIS. I do not/have not used Windows 8 or 8.1, so cannot verify this guide.

Obviously using a working PC to make the recovery drive.  You can do it at a friends house or even the library.
