Windows 8.1 Reset failed

Recommended Posts

An attempt was made to reset Windows while keeping the personal User files intact. The reset did not finish and the PC won't boot up. I took out the hard drive to test it and check what files were on it after that Reset did not work. This is what I've found.
Any help with what to delete or rename to get it back to where it was before the reset would be greatly appreciated.
There are the following new folders, there may be more:
$SysReset
$Windows.~BT
$Windows.~WS

Windows Folder does not have any original files in it that were supposed to be kept. It has no folders for Program Files, Program Data, etc.
Windows.old has a folder named $PBROLD_WindowsApps, plus all the folders and files that it originally had before the reset.

All the diagnostic tests I've done shows the drive to be fine and all Windows folders and files are good no errors found.
