    Support creating win 8.1 Recovery usb Flash without win8


    I got an unhappy message while sitting down to read my morning news sites and a cup of java.

    The error i got was 0xc0000034.

    '0xc0000034' errors and other critical malfunctions can arise when the Windows operating system becomes overloaded with invalid system references, as well as corrupted and deleted registry files. These problems commonly occur due to a lack of regular PC maintenance. As a computer operating system gets older, errors and crashes start to become more frequent and problematic.

    Now, every where i look about recovery, they all say "well, that's easy, just make a recovery disc with the windows 8 recovery tool".

    Here is the annoying part, how do i do that? cause all sites seem to forget that searching for how to do that is basicly cause i CANT get into windows and make the tool.

    Can anyone help me out on how i create a Flash USB for Win8.1 so i can recover my OS?

    Thank you very much!

    What do you have for install media? You list your system as self made so I'm assuming you bought Windows 8.1. If you have a Windows 8.1 DVD boot from it and you should get an option to repair your install. Repair Install Windows 8
