    PC Stuck on Auto Repair while instala with formatted HDD


    Hi all,
    For some odd reason my laptop decided to not boot into windows anymore; It would be stuck "boot looping" with my MSI laptop logo and a loading sign (rotating circle). I had Kali Linux and Windows 8 installed on the laptop and neither one would work. So I formatted the entire HDD with all 3 partitions, windows partition, even my storage, and kali's partition because the automatic repair wouldn't work as well; it'll be stuck on Preparing automatic repair and wouldn't get past that screen. I have formatted my HDD with my other windows 7 machine by just right clicking -> format.
    I have downloaded a torrented version of Win 8 iso (just for the purposes of installation, my laptop came with a Serial # and I have purchased an product key only version as well). I have burned a DVD of win 8 via winISO and changed my boot options to boot from DVD as well.

    Now my problem is, when iI am prompted to press any key to boot from CD/DVD and I press a key I am redirected to Preparing Automatic Repair and back to square one of my problems. I belive the recovery/backup partition is still on there.

    I have tried being in both LEGACY and UIEF. UIEF sends me to Preparing Repair and LEGACY takes me to the windows 8 logo with the rotating circle underneath with nothing after that (not sure if it takes a VERY long time or not)

    Any ideas on what I should do? It is a brand new laptop and I am not trying to invest in a new laptop. (It is a MSI ge70 if any spec is needed).

    Thanks!

    Secure boot is set as off too, as well as fast boot. The windows I have burned on the DVD is Win8.1 Pro X86 and I had a 64bit windows 8 installed before all these problems.
