    Power died in middle 8.1 installation

    Hi all,

    was in the process of installing 8.1 on my home pc when the power shut off in my house. Of course this would happen. I upgraded from Vista using the digital upgrade thing early last year, and since I have no physical cd/flash drive available, is it possible to reinstall windows 8 prior to the loading screen?

    When i try to start it up it and get an error with bad_system_config_info so something got corrupt when my power went out. It goes through trying to repair it then suggests I system restore however it just gets stuck at the w8 loading screen for 20 minutes now. I don't have anything on the pc i can't do without, i Just want to reinstall it/boot into a safe mode so I could reinstall windows that way.

    What are my options here?
