    Cant enter windows


    I have problem and i dont have a clue how to fix it. Recently i upgraded to windows 8.1.
    Everything was ok. Till today. I was signed in from microsoft account i have (live.com). But my brother wanted to switch to local account. And he did today. But account became guest account and lost all privileges. Dont know how he did that. I tried to fix problem. But i made a bigger mess. I entered safe mode. And i deleted that local account. Administrator stayed intact. i restarted system and then i got message on picture. And i cant enter windows now.
    I tried to run win cd instalation and cmd after to make administrator active. but this dont work.
    Can i fix somehow this problem?? Please help. It is very important cause i have some stuff to do for college and i cant be without computer.

    You could try one of the options below to enter Safe Mode, but without any active accounts.

    Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in

    If that fails, then you might see if you may be able to use a Peppermint Live CD to get the files you needed before doing a factory reset.
