    Login screen black with flashing cursor

    So I recently installed Windows X Yosemite transformation pack but didn't like it and had to uninstall. After uninstall it told me to press ok to restart . But when I restarted I couldn't see the logon screen. I tried moving my mouse pad and it would show the cursor but dissapear once movement stops, I've done some research and found this >
    I believe this relates exactly to my issue but the workaround did not work. PLEASE HELP THIS IS REALLY URGENT D:

    Windows 8.1
    8gb ram
    Nvidia gt 635m 2gb ddr3
    Intel i5 3337u cpu with Intel HD 4000

    Asus vivobook s550cm

    Same thing in safe mode . I just see cursor appear and safe mode text in each corner

    When I try reset PC it says
    > unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing

    System restore
    >to use system restore you must specify which windows installation to restore

    Restart this computer, select an operating system and then select system restore
