hi ceves,

 

When you said you tried the factory reset buton, do you mean the OneKey Recovery button?

  - Link to picture

 

If the OneKey Recovery doesn't work and you don't have a recovery drive for Windows 8.1 then try the following:

1. Using another PC, follow this guide on how to download a Windows 8.1 ISO.

2. When finished, follow this guide on how to create a bootable UEFI Windows 8.1 USB flashdrive and use it to reinstall Windows 8.1 on top of your Windows 10 installation (e.g., Drive C:\) without formatting the partition.

 

If successful, Windows 8.1 should automatically activate. You can also view files from the old Windows installation from the C:\Windows.old folder

 

 

Let me know if the steps above works for you.

 

Regards

Thanks for your reply. Correct., I mean the OneKey Recovery button. I don 't have the product key number of Windows 8, because it came preloaded.

Currently, I cannot access anything on my computer.  When starting, windows 10 requests  the password and then the screen goes black and the machine enters a loop
