    Windows 8.1 Pro Automatic Repair Error


    Hello,

    I have been dealing with this issue for weeks with no fix. I upgraded to windows 8.1 when it was available and the first time I turned off my computer after upgrading, it all started and now I'm stuck in this automatic repair loop. To top it all off my mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3... has now become my main issue.

    I have a bootable flash drive loaded with windows 8.1 and a bootable DVD loaded with windows 8.1 but my mobo supports only HDD and CD-rom...

    I have no clue what to do, as I can't use a repair disc to repair my computer and I CANNOT Reset my PC, I have way to many files that I need on my HDD.

    Does anyone have any suggestions at all for me, I literally am clueless at this point and I have tried everything.


    Thank you.

    Yes.

    Run this batch file.
    It may take 2 hours to run:

    dism.bat

    How will I run that batch file when my computer is stuck in automatic repair... Is there a command I can put in the command prompt to run it?

    In administrator command prompt run:

    sfc /scannow

    Click image for larger version

    Then run:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Click image for larger version

    Then run sfc /scannow AGAIN.

    If you try to use the batch file, right click it & choose Run as administrator.

    I will try this when I get home and update after. Thank you for your help!

    I tired the first command "sfc /scannow" and it said "Beginning system scan. This process will take some time. There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."

    and if I restart, it just brings me back to automatic repair again and won't let me run the command...

    That's not good.

    See this post just for future reference:

    Unless someone has a better idea, I would think reinstalling your OS is the best bet.

    I'm not against that, is there a way to recover the files from my HDD in RAID 0? Is the best option to get an interal drive enclosure kit? If so, how would that work with RAID 0
