    Hey Robert:
    Welcome to Windows 8 Forums!
    You can create a recovery within Windows.
    Are you up and running or are you still in a pickle; what shape are you in?

    I don't thinks so, If you didn't use Asus Backtracker to make a recovery media, or some other imaging program like Macrium Reflect you'll have to clean install. Sorry to deliver this information.

    yes your BIOS is actually UEFI and your disk would be GPT rather than MBR. There's a guide in the tutorial that will be very helpful learning these new systems.

    I don't think he can create a recovery usb if he hosed the recovery partition. Time to call the manufacturer.
    Basically have lost the disc (recovery partition) the manufacturer provided.

    I'm assuming it came with OEM 8 or 8.1 pre-installed.

    Na Asus don't give up any disks, you have to make your own Recovery media, best if you do it first thing when you get it. They had one for Win 7 machines for $50 but not win 8.

    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the ASUS OEM manufacturer's website.
