Windows 8 "preparing automatic repair" loop

I am in a Windows 8 "Preparing Automatic Repair" loop.
I got here after rebooting my computer during a windows restart.
I searched on the internet, but could not find a solution. Only suggestions to erase the hard drive.

Does anyone know of a solution to this problem?

Thank you.

I am not sure what you are suggesting.
The start up settings box does not work. All options result in a reboot and a return to the loop (e.g. safe mode does not work).
I do not want to do a refresh or reset at this time.
I tried doing system restore to a previous time, but I can't select my C: drive, as it states:
"you must enable system protection on this drive"

I ran a chkdsk without any improvement.
I gave up and bought a new computer.
