Borrow a bootable Windows 8 DVD from a friend. You do not need his/her Product-key numbers so maybe ask for a burned copy.
Boot the DVD and Windows 8 advanced repair should be able to repair.

I would complain to the company who sold it to you that it has gone wrong. They should at least honour some sort of warranty.

ASUS T100 stuck at preparing automatic repair message will.not reboot


Hello there, i just owned a brand new Asus T100 for 2 days and today on the 3rd day after purchasing, i faced problems during boot/start up where the laptop gets frozen on the Asus logo screen.
I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds and turned it on again. It ran a series of windows software updates before the start up, then after all software updates have been completed, the laptop resumed to freeze at the Asus logo screen again. I tried holding the power button for 10 secs followed by holding the power button and volume up button at the same time, to get into automatic repair/repair mode. THIS HELPS, get into the repair mode!

To cut it short, i tried the other advanced options as well as the restart button in the repair mode but to no avail. After carefully reading the different options in the 'advanced options' in repair mode...
Here's what worked for me:
1) If you're stuck at the Asus logo screen which doesn't seem to boot for ages or at least 10 minutes, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and let the screen turn black. (I did this with my charger plugged in, not too sure if it matters)
2) Count to 10 seconds. Switch the laptop on by HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP BUTTON at the same time. This will send the laptop into an 'automatic repair', followed by a 'diagnosing this PC' and after which you will see a blue screen which is the repair mode.
3) On the blue screen you will see 2 buttons, 'Restart' and 'Advanced Options'. Click on 'Advanced Options'. (DO NOT CLICK RESTART, it does nothing as you will get stuck again at the logo screen)
4) After clicking 'Advanced Options', click 'Advanced ....' (i forgot what exactly) and click 'STARTUP REPAIR'. This is the crucial part.Then follow whatever the system promts you.
5) Afterwards, it will attempt to repair your system then lead you back to the logo screen for startup.
6) Wait a few minutes and you should be able to get to your login screen as usual.

Hope this helps. I chanced upon it by guessing which would actually help me.

This problem usually requires the Operating System CD, but here are a few things you can try before having to have the OS CD:

Try loading the Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) by following these instructions:
  1. To load the last known good configuration in Windows, reboot the computer.
  2. Before the Windows Loading screen appears, press and hold your "F8 Key", this should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below.
  3. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
  4. As can be seen from the example below, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.

Still unsuccessful? You will need the OS CD, unless you have the Recovery Console already installed and available using the Operating System Selection screen:
  1. Start your computer by running the Recovery Console.
  2. Run the chkdsk /p command on the drive, and then restart your computer.
If you are still unsuccessful, you will need to run an OS Repair using the Operating System CD, here are the steps:

Windows XP
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below:d3573cb.gif
  3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup.
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
Windows Vista

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc. If you do not restart your computer from the disc, the option to repair your computer will not appear.
Here is a step by step picture guide.

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc:
  1. Insert the installation disc.
  2. Restart your computer.
    Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, click the arrow next to the Lock button eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c.png, and then click Restart.
  3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

Windows 7

  1. If a startup problem is detected, Startup Repair will start automatically and try to fix the problem.
  2. If the problem is severe enough that Startup Repair doesn't start on its own and you can't access the System Recovery Options menu on your computer's hard disk, you can get to the menu and start Startup Repair by using the Windows installation disc or a system repair disc that you created earlier.

How to install windows 7 operating system


To Install the Windows 7 Operating System (Win 7 OS):

Instructions for a "Clean/New Windows 7 Installation:

AFTER BACKING ALL YOUR DATA THAT YOU DON"T WANT TO LOSE, Do the Following :

1) Insert your Genuine Windows 7 System Disc (Retail or OEM System Installation Disc).

2) Close down all programs and restart your computer.

3) As soon as the computer restarts, you should see a prompt that says something like this: "Press any key to boot from cd/dvd"

....So press any key!... This will boot to the installation disc and prepare for installation or repair (we are going to be installing windows, so ignore the repair options you see on the screen).

*If you don't press a key in time, you will see that the computer will attempt to boot from the hard disc drive instead... if that happens, restart the computer and press a key when prompted.

4) Depending on your particular Windows Version, you will see a prompt that says something about "Do you accept the license terms?" Click "Yes" or "I accept", etc.. and continue on...

5) Choos Custom or Advanced Settings (the other option is for an upgrade..)

6)Select the desired hard disc drive, (HDD aka Hard Drive), Select "Drive Options", and follow the onscreen instructions "Delete the partitions" (Do not Leave another windows installation on the same hard disc drive, unless you are experienced and know how to "dual-boot" properly!) Delete the Partitions.

7) Now choose to install windows (be sure to select the newly deleted empty (unformatted) partition. Windows 7 will automatically format the drive for you and will begin to install windows 7. Follow the onscreen instructions and within a half an hour or less (depending on your hardware) you will be finished, just be sure not to leave the computer unattended while performing a windows installation, since it requires your input quite often to proceed.

That's pretty much all there is to it!.. if you have any more trouble...
Google it or Bing it.... Search Engines are awesome!.... Enjoy!





*NOTE- If your windows 7 disc is a "Upgrade" disc, then you must perform an upgrade while running your previous/older windows version, since Windos Upgrade Discs aren't bootable, they simply patch the older version, replace system files, etc... to transform the previous windows installation into the target/newer version. If you want to perform a clean install, be sure you own a Windows 7 Installation / System Startup Disc.

My xps i don't come on when you boot up the CD light comes on for a second and then all I get is a black screen


When you boot up hold down the F8 button on your keyboard until you see start up options then click on start up repair
  • Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard disk. For more information, see Startup Repair: frequently asked questions and What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista? If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
  • Change restart settings in safe mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more information, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).
  • Reinstall. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows‌.
