    Automatic Repair loop on W8.1 with an SSD


    It's fine I just want to get it working again.

    So I just do a fresh install from my USB stick on the Ssd? If it ask to format the ssd I say yes?

    Just to be safe I can chose from the following: Click image for larger version

    Both drive 2 and drive 0 are my SSD they are the ones with 110gb and 100 mb respectively. Do I install it on the 110gb or delete the 100mb or format etc..

    I think your SSD is drive0. The 100MB partition on drive2 is a leftover from an older OS installation. That is useless.

    Okay. Is there a need to get rid of that 100mb partition?

    Installing now.

    Good news.

    There is no need to tamper with the tiny 100MB partition. It's not worth it. Reclaiming that itty bitty bit of space is not easy and has all kinds of perils if you don't do it right.

    Automatic Repair loop on W8.1 with an SSD


    Now. Is it possible to save this SSD as an img to recover later in the future. Or is a simple Windows System Restore point? I remember that in the usb stick I had W8 on I was able to enter the Windows System Restore but idk if it lets me select a restore from another drive other than the usb.

    Edit any reason why the windows 8.1 install is stuck at setting up 58%?

    Your best bet to backup the system is to make an image. I use free Macrium but any other good imaging program (not Windows imaging) will do.

    I have seen installations being stuck several times. It was usually a bad installation file. But there could be other reasons.

    All is good now. So in summary:

    I image the SSD and its 100mb partition to HDD 1 and then restore it on HDD 2 right?

    Also, there was no possible way of recovering this SSD back to bootable state while keeping the data on it? It's done already, but just wanted to know for the future.
