Everytime I restart the computer it boots into a repair mode, attempts to repair my computer, and then tells me "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically". Why it's doing this I don't know, the system was working fine an hour ago. The only change I made was to attempt to make my RAID work, I rebooted, entered BIOS and changed my "Sata Operation Mode" to "RAID", then the problems started happening. I tried turning it back, even resetting BIOS defaults, but no go. During the boot up though I turned my comp off during the middle of windows loading, I wonder if that could have caused the problem? I know it's not recommended but it's something I've always done and never had a problem with. I've been trying to access my Advanced boot menu to start windows normally (perhaps it's stuck in some kind of repair cycle?) but pressing f8 does nothing, I've tried a thousand times.
I put in my Windows 7 disk and attempted a repair through there which halfway worked. When I boot up now it gives me two OS options to choose from, Windows and Windows 7 Home Premium (Recovered). The latter one boots up windows fine but all of my files are gone and it's telling me my copy of windows is not genuine! I had the majority of my data so it's not a huge deal to do a clean install but I would like to avoid that if possible.
I'm using an asrock 890fx mobo with AMD processor.
