My Windows 8 PC had to do a Check Disk which I do once a month on every computer that I have and I needed to get on the computer ASAP so I canceled around 27% thinking because I did this many times before with no problems..and now when I restart my computer it has a BSOD and goes into a restart loop. 
Now would this be the Hard drive or would it be the OS? 
I can't get into safe mode and restart the Check disk because Microsoft decided you have to be BOOTED into the OS to enter safe mode. So, Dell didnt give me a recovery OS disk and I cannot create one as I need a 12 GB CD (which Im not 100% sure they make those) and would not detect my USB flash drive so I never created one. So dell since I'm under warranty would send me the OS recovery disk but Im not sure it would work, Any tips? 
Its also a New computer that I got last month so its not old if that helps.

This most definitely would be the operating system.


Manufacturers don't include an installation disc with computers now, they leave a partition on the hdd with the System Recovery.  You will find instructions for using this in your user manual.  Since this computer is only a month old you won't lose much by doing this.  This is your best shot.


I would suggest you do a repair installation.  You can find instructions at Windows Eight Forums which includes a download of a ISO image which you will want to burn to a disc to create a bootable disc.


In the future, don't start a scan unless you have the time to allow it to finish running, and never stop a scan.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
