I was cleaning my computer earlier today and decided before hand that I needed to take some "safety precautions" with the battery (which is built-in to the computer)... I shut down my computer and stuck a paper clip in the "Emergency Hole" to cut power from the battery. After I finished cleaning the outside of the computer, I plugged the charger into the computer and turned the computer on.. only to receive an "All boot options are tried. Press <F4> key to recover with factory image using Recovery or any other keys for next boot loop iteration." It most likely has to do with me clicking the button in the "Emergency Hole"... my stupidity. I don't want to lose any data on my hard drive or otherwise and I wish to remain using Windows 8.1.
