    Error Restting "Ther was a problem while reseting your PC"

    I have a Windows 8.1 Asus Notebook PC Model X102BA, and it lost power during an upgrade to Windows 10 Technical preview, which made me unable to boot into Windows, I then copyed the files from windows.old to the C Drive using the Command Prompt, which let me sign in, where I used system restore to to restore from a restore point prior to the failed upgrade. However, from that point on my computer stsrted acting weird, like not letting me make user accounts, so I have decided to Refresh or Reset it (I don't care which, my files are backed up, however when I tried to refresh from PC Settings (Reset does the same thing) I got a blue screeen with the message "There was a problem while resetting your PC.

    So i'm looking for a way to either Reset or Refresh my computer, but:

    • I don't have any kind of Recovery Media, or a DVD or CD drive.
    • I don't have a device I can use to make one.
    • My computer came with a Recovery Partition, but it doesn't seem to do much.
    • Refreshing or Restting from the menu from pressing F9 while booting says the same thing.
    • I have used the System File checker as instructed here: and it said there were system files that had been fixed, but nothing changed.

    Please help me soon! I can use my PC now, but there's not much it can do and seems unstable.

    I do not want Windows 10 Technical Preview anymore, I just want Windows 8.1 back!

    Edit: Sorry for typos in the title, there seems to be a character limit, so i cant fix it.
