I've had windows 8 running for about a month now, full version via my school.
It has been running fine except until recently. I am stuck in what appears to be an endless loop of death.
What's happened: I installed Symantec endpoint protection (school has it for free) a few days ago and today I had to restart my comp. not necessarily the first reboot after Symantec install. It tried to boot but I got a frowny face saying there was an error and windows couldn't boot " system service exception (sysplant.sys) ".
What ive tried: rebooting and then I was prompted to do a sys restore. Ok i tried that and it just goes to a black screen with a windows logo and does nothing. Tried pressing shift f8 and mashing f8 to get to a helpful screen, but windows has failed and it goes into the sys restore loop again.
Anyway other way I can get to a command prompt? Or a program I can burn an Iso onto a flash that has recovery tools? I'd rather not do a fresh reinstall again I've done it twice this year
