I suspect that a conversion to NTFS was attempted. For some reason the conversion failed and it is attempting to restart the process on every reboot. Stopping the conversion would solve nothing as the file system is in an usable state. Probably the only way to restore operation would be a reinstall.

There are utilities available that could probably recover some of your data. I don't have any experience with them.

Boot to safe mode to try that.
