    W8 Automatic Repair loop - failed/corrutpted W10 update


    Could someone help me please? I have an ASUS x202e notebook PC that boots to the "Preparing Automatic Repair". After sitting on the pretty blue screen for about a minute (or so) it goes straight to the Choose an Option screen. I have tried everything under the sun including chkdsk c:\r and sfc /scannow, bootrec.exe options from RE cmd prompt. There are no system restore points . When attempting to Refresh or Reset it goes through the motions yet fails and say "Unable to Refresh/Reset the PC".

    Unfortunately, the owner (my son) did not create the Recovery USB. sigh....... kids!

    I am in the process of trying to access the Recovery Partiton through the cmd prompt. this is what I have done so far:

    Click image for larger version


    There is tons more in the cmd prompt window. I am hoping someone is familiar enough with the rest of it so I won't have to keep typing.

    Any help is most appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Donna

    Hi axe0,

    Thank you so much for coming to my aide.

    Oh shoot! I have a W8 64-bit RC .iso in my dropbox. Wasn't sure how (or if) I could utilize that in a situation such as this. I use it for the purpose of accessing unbootables for malware removal. Couple of silly questions if I may.....

    Do I need to download another program such as Rufus to create a bootable USB?

    How would I proceed once I get the recovery .iso downloaded to the USB or should I just reply back once I have the .iso downloaded onto the USB so you could provide further instructions?

    Again thank you!

    Donna

    The .iso file can be mounted using a program, or you can just unpack it on a USB, best is to use an empty USB.
    Once you have created a bootable recovery USB, shut the notebook down (or restart) and before windows loads press the key that gives you the boot options and choose the USB.
    It might take a few minutes before the recovery starts.

Hi Everyone, I'm stuck in an automatic repair loop. One suggestion has been to use a USB recovery disk but I can't create one now that I don't have access to Windows 8. Any suggestions?
