    Got the repair loop again today after rebooting from windows updates. There were 2 critical and about 6 optionals. I think some of the optionals were the same updates from the last time this shit happened.
    Did an image just before the updates just in case....
    Hate windows 8!

    Damn! Try Scanning your drive from outside of Windows 8 using one of the tools mentioned earlier in this thread - Most of them are on Hiren's Boot CD - Link is in my Sig down below. Try "Vivard" - Use "Smart Remap" and if there are any bad spots on your drive, they will be safely locked off. Process takes a couple of hours, then do a CHKDSK from within Mini XP - Do a full CHKDSK c: /x /r then reboot and see if you are still in the loop.
