so my Area 51 r2 is out of warranty and it won't boot past the splash screen. I can't reset it to factory setting and I can't get it to boot up using the resource disc. I tried setting the boot to read from the DVDs but that doesn't work either. It was running 8.1 and was updated to 10. Short of taking it to a shop, what can I do?
