I have this ultrabook which can't boot. it's win 8 and is constantly looping this sequence of HP logo first boot screen (msg 'please wait'),  "Preparing automatic repair" and "Your pc ran into problem and needs to restart".

Pressing F2 to enter test routines page. I ran start-up test, run-in test and a more comprehensive test (3rd one). All passed OK.

Can you boot into safe mode?

Do you have the OS installation disk so you can boot from that?

Can't boot to OS.

Tried all F# keys, none have the option boot modes.

Don't have the installation disk.

You can try the following. It may not work but if it does, it should get you to the troubleshooting screen. From there pick Advanced Options > System Restore. Restore to an earlier date. If that does not work you can refresh the computer but any programs installed since purchase would need to be installed. All your data would still be available after the Refresh.

 

  1. Hold the Power Button for 5 seconds or until the computer completely shuts off.
  2. Press the Power Button to turn the computer on.
  3. As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
  4. Repeat this process 2 or 3 times until you see the Preparing Automatic Repair screen.
  5. Let the computer boot to the Automatic Repair screen.
  6. Click Advanced Options, and then select Troubleshoot.

If the above does not work then download Windows 8.1 media from here. Burn the iso disk and boot the install disk. See

Booting to Recovery Environment with Windows 8/8.1 installation media or Recovery Drive/System Repair Disc  Here

Select Repair Computer and do a System Restore.
