I didn't mean automated repair: sorry for not having mentioned this.
Meanwhile you solved the problem, but I'd like to point out for other people having a similar problem that the Windows install CD's and DVD's feature a command line toolbox, which is according my own experience far more detailed and efficient.
With older Windows systems the trick was to boot on the CD and to quit or stop the installation by hitting F3 two times. A command line then appeared where help was available.

Shouldn't that be on some sticker glued onto the computer?

Interesting link. Now I know for sure Windows 8 also features an efficient command line toolbox ;o)
