I think I have a multitude of issues going on so I'm kinda scatter brained and new to the world of forums so bare with me. SO!, I dont even know where to start. First off the machine im using is a ASUS K55N Db81, Hiachi 444gb hard drive AMD A8 Trinity Atipio 8gb RAM running Windows 8.1 but came with Windows 8. I first had problems with potential malware/spyware/virus's. well at least thats what someone in another forum adviced me, he had guidied me through the removal process and said i was all clean. Shortly after i upgraded from win 8 to win 8.1. since i did the update i was unable to use system restore, system refresh ,and the factory reset option. I had read this can be due to errors on my hARDdrive or corrupt files. So I ended up rebooting into recovery mode and using command prompt i did a chkdsk , it asked to dismount drive and i was told to type Yes. The chkdsk did find errors on the upper file case and it repaired the drive i did this for bolth my C: drive and X: drive CDROM. bolth had errors and bolth came back clean. Since then i cant boot into windows , i have tried ( bootrec /fixmbr } { bootrec /fixboot} bootrec /rebuildbcd} when it scans for windows installations it says finds 0? long story short i had a Kapersky Recovery Disk and it allowed me to boot into the Rescue Disk mode . It also found infections that the previous software( malwarebytes/ESET online scan/Mcafee/and Kapersky internet Protection) Did not! Find. Now that im able to see files due to the Kav-Rescue -Disk ,im able to peek at some diff logs, and could use some help with what to do next. I attached a log of my current disk layout below. thanks

Hi Kal,

Can you describe what happens if you let the system boot normally?

Do you have the Windows 8 install DVD?

Booting from the Windows 8 DVD after choosing the Language and Keyboard can you click Repair your Computer?
Tell me the options presented next.

It gives the standard options Restore / Reset / Refresh - automatic repair and command promt . The issue is that almost none of these work. Automatic repair says it can not fix computer, reset says I'm missing a partition , the refresh option says the drive where windows is installed is locked . Also there seem to no longer be any system restore points, basically I'm stuck with the only option which is command prompt. I can start windows 8 set up for clean install but then receive a error about missing a required download so I'm unable to start install . One other thing it looks as if my C drive is empty ? Yet the x: drive labeled boot has windows dir and other folders that should be on C : the OS drive. I'm stumped at is point

When I looked at disk layout log that I posted it shows both recovery and reset volumes listed as healthy so I don't know how it could not be located on system reset.

Can you access the Command Prompt? If you can try the following:

When you boot into the Windows Recovery Environment the drive letter for your Windows installation may not be the same. For example, if your Windows installation is normally on the C: drive, it may not be located at the D: drive. To determine what drive letter your Windows installation is located on, you can type this command press enter:
bcdedit | find "osdevice"

This command will display output similar to : os device partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive that your Windows installation is located.

Check the disk by typing the command:
chkdsk /f /x D:
Note: replace D: with the drive returned by the command above.

After check disk try to check the system files integrity:
sfc /scannow

Are you referring to the fist command? How about the others?
