    Could you attach a picture of your Disk Management Windows showing the partitions?

    I have seen that error, and I believe is caused by multiple System partitions being present in some manner.

    If you have 8.1 are you using the 8.1 recovery media?

    Edit: When you try to re-image, are you using a Flash Drive, and are you using the check box to keep it from being reformatted?
