Yesterday I turned on my laptop and it got stuck in an infinite Boot/bluescreen/automated repair/black screen loop. I booted into linux from a flash drive and performed memtest86 (everything ok there) and HDD SMART tests (100% ok). I then booted to Windows Recovery using Windows 8's bootable installation flash drive and tried to change the BCD records to make the system stop on the Bluescreen so I can jot down the error number, so I typed in
"bcdedit /set onetimeadvancedoptions on"
in the recovery console and I got a message saying
"the boot configuration data store could not be opened. The system cannot find the file specified"
"attrib -h -s C:\boot\BCD"
Path not found - C:\boot
So I tried
And I got an uneasing message saying
The request failed due to a fatal device hardware error
I've tried CHKDSK with
chkdsk C: /F
A disk read error occuredc0000483
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream.
Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50
I find it hard to believe that my SSD is heavily damaged, as under Linux I can read and manage files on it just fine. Where should I go from now on?
