Is there anyone here can help me with this? No one I knew uses 8.1... This stupid boot loop won't let me do anything because apparently I am not an administrator - occasionally it'll let me refresh but need recovery media

No it won't work and keep asking for media. If someone can upload to my Dropbox etc that'll be awesome
