I am using a CyberPowerPc tower
with an MSI motherboard
It came with a factory issued Win 8 recovery disc.
that was already pre installed on it
To start off my painful story I woke up this morning turned on my computer & encountered a Autorepair loop I believe The error was

"d:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt"

So I pressed F8 & went to the recovery menus & inserted my Factory issued Win-8 recovery disc in the refresh PC option it sent back a message saying

"Image Media Invalid"

I then went too the recover option where it allows you to bring up the computers library & I opened the cd & right clicked I then ran the setup under admin. selected Custom installation. everything seemed to be going good it restarted then & sat at the loading screen for 20 or so mins I manually restarted it thinking it was stuck.
Now it displays an error.

"The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpexted error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart installation."

Now I can no longer even access my recovery menus by spamming F8 all the way to the error message.
as for the Bios I dont know how to even access it.
I really need help to fix this as I cannot afford to send it to the shop.

Welcome to EightForums.

I then went too the recover option where it allows you to bring up the computers library

Can you copy your personal DATA, from the option?

Doing the below you will DELETE all personal DATA.

Boot the DVD in UEFI mode, from the One Time Boot Menu, reinstall. (Check the PC's manual for the F? to use)
