How to Repair Windows 8
Windows 8 comes with new tool called Automatic Repair and like its Window 7 predecessor , Automatic Repair is designed to intercede at the first hint of an operating system start-up problem. When a start-up problem is detected, the Automatic Repair will launch an automated, diagnostics based troubleshooter that does not require user intervention, and in many cases it will resuscitate an un-bootable system.
If the start-up problem is severe enough to prevent Automatic Repair launching on its own, you can launch it from a Windows 8 Recovery Drive.
