    Windows 8 Consumer Preview has so many bugs and thus so many users are facing multiple kind of problem after installing this version of windows. In your case since the file winload.exe has crashed, you will have to repair it using the DVD through which you have installed windows 8. Just insert the DVD of windows 8 where you have burnt the ISO file of windows 8 and complete the whole repair and recovery process. The DVD not only contains the Repair Tool but also the Recovery tool as well. But if you don’t have this DVD then you will have to download the ISO file again from the official website and bun it on to a DVD using slow burn(4X maximum burn speed).

    Hi,
    it seems that your windows installation is missing files,this might be due to the bad sector in the disk from where you installed the windows
    or somebody had misplaced the file.so all you need to do now is boot from windows 8 cd and click on repair option available along with new installation
    within few minutes your computer will start working normal.
    :-)
