How do you restore Win8.1 when the Stick wont boot and wont respond to a keyboard for F8?

My Stick will not boot up properly. It launches with a Windows Boot Manager error, 0xc000007b.

The documentation states that a restore should start automatically (no it hasn't) and if not to press F8 to manually start the process.

Pressing F8 does nothing, and I have tried 3 different keyboards, which were working fine on the devices I borrowed them from.

What else can I try?

Mine just started having the same exaunct issue today. I filled out a Service Request since it is under warranty.

Warranty it. My first one failed with a bad eMMC flash chip. Even GParted wouldn't mount it.

Please perform a recovery of the operating system using a wire keyboard. Plug the keyboard to the compute stick, restart the stick and keep tapping F8, the stick should provide with a pop-up with the recovery options.

Mike,

The original poster stated in the thread and even the threads title that F8 does nothing.

After contacting support I was given an RMA and shipped mine back today for replacement.

Mike, I did try that, but still no joy. I have contacted the supplier.
