I got a refurbished asus laptop. It has no recovery partition. I'm currently downloading the USB windows 8.1from this thread - Need help formatted genuine windows 8 in lenovo
I entered my bios via f-9, but don't see where there is an option to change boot to USB. I'm afraid if I pop the SSD in, I'm going to have issues since my windows media is on the USB stick.
Any pointers or links to guides that will enable me to do this successfully?
