Hi there , i know that there are a few threads posted about this problem but OP's never post enough info on the problem , after fiddling with the startup options and the general recovery process im going to post here before trying a clean install , i need to get to the bottom of this!
A Quick overview :
I made a clean install for windows 8 through my USB (used the windows 7 tool for that) , installed windows 8 without a single problem , used it for 3 days straight without any problems (some minor freezes here and there) , games were working fine and 3D applications (Maya , Unity3D..etc) worked fine. I updated my Windows to the latest update (some drivers were included through the update) , the night before this nightmare started i turned it off and went to sleep , next morning i woke up turned it on but i had to leave so i turned it off on the lock screen (before logging in). turned it on later that night and this problem happend.
"Automatic Repair" saying "Automatic Repair Couldn't Repair Your PC".
The file is "F:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt".
I went to advanced options and tried the following:
1- Restore from system point :
gave me an error that the system Protection service needs to be activated.
2- CMD :
tried SFC / scannow and it gave me the same error above "system Protection service could not be started" .
tried chkdsk and it said that no problems were found.
3- tried through advanced startup options
* Safe Mode dosnt work , it will simply boot me back to automatic diagnostic running and takes me back to the first error posted here ""Automatic Repair" saying "Automatic Repair Couldn't Repair Your PC"."
4- tried disabling automatic restart , dosnt work.
I booted from my USB drive again and tried everything posted above and same problem , nothing works , i cant refresh , reset or do anything else...
i tried everything humanly possible from the recovery console and nothing works , so im simply stuck in this crappy windows repair boot with no way out.. i am now using Windows 7 through my other hard drive and i have my Windows 8 drive connected (checked it for error and it returned back a healthy drive) but i did however find this log file on my Win8 drive (Windows\debug\WIA) , the text file is this "wiatrace" , it contained the following :
**************** Started trace for Module: [sti_ci.dll] in Executable [setup.exe] ProcessID:  at 2013/01/12 23:53:29:863 ****************

does this mean that my Samsung GS2 drivers caused the problem?
I found no other logs , at least not that i know of... i really need to try and fix this but its not really a big deal if i have to clean install again since i have 4 different HDD's installed and i have a backup of all my files.. but i have to try and fix this so that people like me can fix this and of course have a way out personally if it happens again..
thank you for reading and ill be waiting for your replies...
