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

or the F8 option if you can nail the timing correctly.
