    AutoRepair Startup Loop - SrtTrail.txt

    Hey all,

    Last night I was playing League of Legends when I got a BSoD. I didn't think much of it, and just waited for my computer to restart. However, as it restarted, I saw that it was auto repairing and then diagnosing. After that it said auto repair failed, giving me the directory c:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt. I tried system refresh, which shoot me back system refresh failed straight away. The same happens with system restart, but it takes much longer for it to say the restart failed. I have no system restore points to choose from and I have no recovery disks as Windows 8 came preinstalled on the computer. I've troubledshooted for hours and come to opening SrtTrail.txt with the command prompt. It says:

    Root cause found: The operating system version is incompatible with Startup Repair.

    So I have two questions:

    1) What causes this to happen?

    2) How can I fix it?

    I Googled the root cause and found several links among them:
