Y500 OKR not working

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?

Boot the unit with a Win 8.1 installer. Select repair. 

 

Note: Forget about OKR. It is no longer working.

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

You can use that tool to download the installer. Do not select the Pro version installer. Burn the installer to a USB or DVD.
