I have a Y500 with windows 8.1, recently the OS became corrupted and goes into a loop of preparing automatic repair, and resetting on boot. I've gotten all my files off by booting into ubuntu through a USB key, however, when I attempt to use OKR to perorm a system restore I only get a black screen. From reading online this is supposedly because I have adjusted partition sizes (I was going to install a 2nd OS, but ended up not doing this, so all partitions are currently at their original size). Is there any way of fixing OKR, or forcing it to boot into it given that my OS is currently kaput?

To clarify, would this ISO be suitable for for accomplishing that? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8ISO
