    This may not apply to everyone but I had the start up looping issue this morning and this is how I resolved it:

    First I have 2 laptops running 8.1 64x: a) Toshiba and b) HP. The Toshiba had no problem. The HP hung in the start up loop.

    I powered off the HP that was looping. I then disconnected the external power source and also an external monitor which I was running.

    I restarted the computer without the power or monitor connected - thinking the problem might be power or driver related.

    The computer started with no problem. I then reconnected everything and all is good.

    I do not know if this is a solution for everyone or is just specific to my laptop. The fact it only happened on one says it might be specific to the firmware on the specific manufacturer.

    Good luck.
