    Accidently Registers Custom System Image.


    While creating custom system image, I accidently registers the custom system image as default image when refreshing Windows 8 instead the OEM one. So, how do I unregister the custom system image and make the OEM system image as the default one? Any ideas how?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
