    Windows 8.1 hangs on many operations

    Yes, I attempted to restore to factory settings. After trying to refresh the PC is says the drive where Windows is installed is locked. UNlock the drive to try again And after trying to set the PC it says unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing.

    Windows 8.1 hangs on many operations
