Default Behavior

The Intelide service is a kernel device driver. In Windows 8 it is being loaded by Boot Loader before Kernel initialization. If Intelide fails to load or initialize, the error details should be automatically logged. Then Windows 8 is restarting the PC and attempting to use the Last Known Good configuration. If the Last Known Good configuration isn't working properly, Windows 8 startup ends with a Stop error. If you disable the intelide service, Windows 8 will fail to start.

Restore Default Startup Configuration of Intelide

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

2. Copy the commands below, paste them into the command window and press ENTER:

sc config intelide start= boot
sc start intelide

3. Close the command window and restart the computer.

The intelide service is using the intelide.sys file that is located in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers directory. If the file is removed or corrupted, read this article to restore its original version from Windows 8 installation media.
