On a Yoga 3 pro that had a corrupted and unbootable version of Windows 8.
I've managed to create a USB boot drive that the computer recognizes, I've deleted all partitions but when I attempt the clean reinstall I get "Windows cannot install required files, make sure all files required for the installation are available and restart the installation. Error code 0x8007013".
I've tried it multiple times with multiple USB drives. I've tried the Windows Media Creation tool (the computer won't even recognize it), I've tried it making a USB stick with Rufus (see above problem) and I've tried making one with Windows Media Creation tool, copying all the files off it, formatting with Rufus and copying all the files back, same problem. I've tried with Secure Boot on and with it off, I've tried with UEFI on and with it set to Legacy. No luck.
I'm normally pretty good at this, but this has me stumped. Any assistance would be appreciated.
