I read a topic on how to activate F8 to get to Safe Mode, but I cannot even pass "Starting Automatic Repair". Most of the topics talk about creating a repair disk, but for that I need to get to Windows first. Any help will be appreciated.

I am encountering the same if not similar issue.  I can not access any of the Windows 8 fixes in advanced settings, because Windows boots directly to "Starting Automatic Repair".  I have attempted to allow the repair to go through to completion on multiple occasions (up to 48 hours) with nothing but the repair loop.

 

I have an HP ProBook 4530s.

Because Windows 8 opens so quickly the F8 option isn't used.  This means that you cannot access the Advanced Boot Option at the startup.

 

In order to address this issue you, you will need the installation disc. 

 

Since you can't boot into the operating system you can't use the recovery partition, if your computer has one.

 

Once again, please post the make and model of this computer.
