    I can not find the option to repair disc and system image .
    Thank you.

    Hi there
    Just download some FREE image program (Free macrium for example) and boot that and backup your OS to either an external drive or separate partition. (don't forget the system partition as well). As I have commercial ACRONIS that works fine for me. I never did like the windows built in image backups in any case.

    Most of these imaging programs allow you to make a bootable USB stick version so you don't need to boot from a CD / DVD.

    Cheers

    Thanks for Macrium link. It seems to be a very good free program.

    You can still create a system image in Win 8.1; however, they just made it more difficult. See my post here:
