    Windows 8 boot always says Scanning and Repearing drive C:


    Every time I boot up my windows 8 laptop now, it just says Scanning and Repairing drive C and then it gets stuck at 27% and never moves past that

    Do you have a recovery disk{s} ?

    Just a suggestion--- Try to get a set of factory settings recovery disks from the manufacturer.

    edit--- I got a set from Gateway for $20. I consider it money well spent. I needed them 3 times. I was glad I had them.

    I now use Macrium Reflect to make system images & don't need the recovery disks. But I am still glad I have them.

    I have a laptop which came preinstalled with Win8, so I don't have any recovery discs.

    I bought my computer with 8 installed.
    I had to contact the manufacturer to buy some recovery disks.
