    Just "WINDOWS". It wouldn't let me type that last time. Sorry I'm on my phone.

    Doesn't sound encouraging.

    Sounds like a corrupt file system - see if this thread helps at all.

    If you are really stuck, I may let you use my boot media.

    You would need to be able to d/l it and put it on flash drive/cd.

    Hmm.
    You have not tried startup repair from a Windows 8 installation disc, correct?

    You won't need instructions, it looks and works exactly like windows. It has shortcuts on the desktop pointing at data recovery programs, etc. They are the free versions, of course, but they work well.

    It might take a while to upload it.
