I was using windows 10. I recently was using my pc and it seemed to be slow so i restarted it and then it came up with messages saying repairing computer and just kept repairing for hours and hours and the percentage would not go past 46%. It was repairing the hard disk (C:) so i decided to put my windows 8 disk in ( which i have lost the product key for) and now i can't seem to get it running, it asks for product key so i put one in that my friend said would work. And when i end up at the end of the process it says " the computer started using windows installation media. Remove the installation media and restart the upgrade.

I do this and i get the exact same message every time, i don't know if my hard disk is damaged or what, please can someone help.

You give a strong hint that it is: "just kept repairing for hours and hours and the percentage would not go past 46%. It was repairing the hard disk."

If there is a hard drive diagnostic in the BIOS/UEFI run it. If that doesn't sufficiently answer your concern get the diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer.
