I had win7, which was working perfectly. I put in a win8 disk, and chose upgrade install option, which instead of resetting the pc, just upgrades from one os to another, without losing data, settings, and programs. I found out a little problem. My pc won't restart. It can shutdown, and then start, but not restart. When I was installing my drivers, one driver asked me to restart, and when I did, it kept on restarting at the loading screen. So, I put my disk back in, and through my BIOS, opened it. Chose the repair options, and finally, chose the Automatic Repair option, and my windows started.
I tried one whole day to fix this restart problem, so that in the future, I can restart. My pc was working fine, except that it wasn't able to restart, when suddenly something happened and it won't boot at all, only it keeps on restarting when at the loading screen. I tried to open it in Safe mode, and it worked. Now, my windows only opens in Safe mode. I tried to re-install windows through 2 methods:-
1)I tried to re-install by booting the bootable disk through my BIOS. It asked me to install through the windows.
2)I tried to install by opening windows in safe mode, and it asked me to open normal mode instead of the safe mode.
Please give me a solution which would help me solving my problem, without losing any data, and installed programs.
