    windows 8.1

    Well thanks to your Universal USB installer and Linux MINT I managed to pull my data out! Then I followed the Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery - Windows 7 Help Forums to recover the registry. Everything went well so far but when I entered the command cd \windows\system32\config I got the response The system cannot find the path specified.

    Anyway I'm think that I have to format both my SSD and HDD and do a clean windows installation in the worst scenario. Since I have acquired all my data I guess saving or killing the windows has no difference now.

    You need to type: cd C:\windows\system32\config

    Also from Admin command prompt, run these 2 commands to make sure there's no corrupted system files:
    1. dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    2. sfc /scannow

    I have tried dism and sfc commands and did not work. Since now my laptop takes forever like 20 minutes to boot up just a advanced troubleshoot menu, I guess I have to do a clean window installation then.

    Thank you for your advices!! Should this post be marked as solved?
