Have recently upgraded to windows 8.1 from windows 8, and I am experiencing network problems and system crashes. I would like to refresh the windows 8.1 installation.
When I try to refresh, I get the message:
'Some files are missing. Your windows installation or recovery media will provide these files.'
When I follow the steps to create the installation media, I can not because I have only a windows 8 key.
I don't want to have to go through the steps to re install windows 8 and all of my programs, then re upgrade to windows 8. What other options do I have? Is the only option to buy windows 8.1?
