After run windows repair v3.9.1, stuck in windows Auto repair loop.
- can't load safe mode.
- tried every option in the boot options menu and cannot get Windows 8 to boot. I just get 'Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC." And later: "Log file: D:\Windows\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt" with the Shut down and Advanced options button, which just takes me to the boot options screen.

When the Startup Repair fails, does it give you the option to try other repair methods ?

This may take you to the Recovery Environment to try the restore points.

Sometimes a cold boot can work, but not always.

This is done by removing all power sources then hold the power button in for ~30 secs then plug the AC in to see if it will start normally.

This next one can work on some Win 7 laptops but not sure about Win 8/8.1 machines.

Start tapping the spacebar at the rate of 1/sec then hit the power button while continuing to tap the spacebar.

This can get you into the advanced boot options where you could use Safe Mode to restart Windows Repair to use the registry restore option.

Also in the advanced boot options is one to stop the auto repair loop but this will probably just produce a BSOD with a Stop Error code.

Can anyone help please?

It's best if you open your own thread with details of your OS and how your problem came about.
