    Alright. Now how do I do step 2 before booting to Windows? I have the program downloaded to my laptop now.

    Okay, got past step 1.

    Whs, I must be blind but I can't seem to see in the tutorial how to get bootmgr running on the PC that needs help.

    Maybe I misunderstand. 2 questions:

    1. The system on your HDD works ??
    2. You want to image the HDD system to the SSD - right ??

    Btw: Don't do step 2 yet. I have to double check whether that works already for Windows 8. I thought it did but I better check.

    1. I'm not sure what you mean by system but yes my HDD works perfectly fine. I have 2. One that is very big, and one that is only 500GB.

    2. Since you said my SSD is simply screwed up and not dead, I want to just get everything running back to normal.

    I've done step 1 of your instructions last page. I am going to bed and will resume this tomorrow, spent the entire afternoon :/.

    The question was: can you boot Windows 8 from one of the HDDs (running system).

    Btw: I checked whether EasyBCD can deal with the Windows 8 bootmgr. The information is not crisp. I have done that many times in Windows 7, but never in Windows 8. So forget step 2. for the time being. We may want to do to do something else. We'll discuss that once I understand what your current situation is regarding running Windows 8.

    Automatic Repair loop on W8.1 with an SSD


    Both my hdds have space for windows but it's not on there. The only place I could boot windows from is my ssd but that's the whole point of this thread that's clearly not working.

    OK, then we have to go back to square 1. All the time I was under the impression that you still had a working Windows 8 system on one of the HDDs. But if that is not the case, then you have no Windows 8.

    Your SSD is all scewed up. Even mouth to mouth resuscitation will not revive that. A reinstall is in order. I am sorry I gave you the wrong path because of my misunderstanding.

    These are cmd commands. And stop doing chkdsk on the SSD. This is not a spinning disk with tracks and sectors. If the SSD has defunct cells, the internal SSD controller takes care of those automatically.
    Thanks, I was not sure how to handle it with an SSD drive- So CHKDSK won't help at all then? I was thinking in terms of if his system got stuck in a repair loop, running CHKDSK manually might bust it out.
