    Seems like i made a typo in the tutorial.
    You're right, it's not OsLocationPath it's OsInstallLocation.
    Sorry!

    Actually I cannot my Windows file from - Change PC settings/General/Refresh your PC without affecting the files as well. Every times the system shows me that some files are missing so Windows could not download correctly. And three days ago I had a problem with my laptop because I started try to refresh Windows OS. When laptop start to work I see black screen. Some times I see black screen when I work and I need to restart to continue work. i try to reset and upgrade BIOS it doesn't help. I replaced RAM memory. Nothing. I put just one memory in slot and turn on Memtest86 but system could not test from first time. Couple times was restarting because of black screen but I did it to finish and one memory of two work correctly. Second memory I didn't test yet. Maybe all these problem are connected?

    Your computer seemed to be badly performing (black screens, memory issues, etc).
    Try running SFC /scannow
    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
