This woked for me, too.

I want to add that you have to

- hit SPACE-Key 

- within 1 second.

to cancel scan.

Then i could start windows 8.1.

I checked the HDD on another PC.

So this is Microsofts best OS ever??!

No progress information, no way to interact...

Thank you. I held down the power button for 4 seconds. Then I rebooted the computer. I got stuck again. I repeated the turning off. Then I turned it on again and there was a message to "press any key to bypass the chkdsk". Everything was fine after that. Thank you for your help.
