Do you have another functioning Windows 8 machine? If so, you can create a USB recovery drive using the steps here: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/create-a-recovery-drive-in-windows-8/

Once you have the recovery drive you can boot to it and 'Refresh' your Windows 8 installation. You may also need your Windows 8 installation media to perform the refresh. See here for the steps: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/reset-your-pc-from-a-windows-8-recovery-drive/
