So Friday, I tried to boot my computer and ended up with an automatic repair loop. The screen reads automatic repair, then goes to diagnosis and gets stuck here for hours on end. I have a Lenovo G50-45 and Windows 8. After trying to do a hard reset, unplugging the AC and pressing the power button and it not working, I used the novo button on the side of the computer. I tried to reset BIOS settings to defaults but it did not work. I then created a recovery drive with a USB key using my brother's computer. Again, I used the novo button, and managed to boot from the recovery drive from there. I tried system restore but it gets stuck on system restore initializing for more than thirty minutes. I tried bcdedit and it did not work. I have tried bootrec up until rebuildbcd and when I come to rebuildbcd, it keeps processing for more than twenty minutes without results. I have tried chkdsk but it tells me that Windows is locked. I refuse to do One Key Recovery because it will bring me back to factory settings (yes I know, I did not think of doing a backup). I was told that System Refresh is not a great idea. I am trying to find a way to repair this problem. I have work to do on this computer and I would like it to be resolved.
