I have a Windows 8 PC that is stuck in a endless Repair Loop!  I get the menu options to do a Restore, Repair Startup, Refresh. Reset....etc .  I have tried all the options that will not destroy the data/programs on the computer and nothing works.

Did a checkdisk... no help.

I ran the Dell Diagnostics and all hardware passed.

Please Help!

UEFi is on.. F5 F8 are not working.... Tried System Restore with 3 different restore pts.  
they failed each time and it said that the restore point was either damaged or deleted.

why were you repairing that PC?  what was the original reason?
probably you have bad hardware - test ram and disk - i use the ubcd for this :
Hardware diagnostic CD    UBCD

go to the download page, scroll down to the mirror section, and  click on a mirror to start the download
Download the UBCD and make the cd   <<==on a WORKING PC, and boot the problem PC from it
Here 2 links, one to the general site, and a direct link to the download

since the downloaded file is an ISO file, eg ubcd527.iso - so you need to use an ISO burning tool
if you don't have that software, install cdburnerXP : http://cdburnerxp.se/

If you want also the Ram tested - run memtest86+ at least 1 full pass,  - you should have NO errors!
 
For disk Diagnostics run the disk diag for your disk brand (eg seagate diag for seagate drive)  from the HDD section -  long or advanced diag !  (runs at least for30 minutes)

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/                        ultimate boot cd
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html             download page

**  you can make a bootable cd - or bootable usb stick

When the User came in yesterday morning the computer was stuck in this loop.  Whateverr happened took place over night.

My guess is a Windows Update happened that didn't agree with the machine?

Did you parallel the system to get the data or did you pull the drive?
