    A question about making a Recovery drive (please read)

    Hi everyone, just recently, my Windows 8 just got "rekt" and wont boot up, it shows up a BSOD and whatever i do, it wont boot, even at safe mode
    Since my neighbor had a Windows 8 computer, i asked her if could i use their laptop to make a recovery drive and they allowed me, now i have some questions before i will do this
    1. Can i only copy the system repair tools instead of the whole partition? (i only got a 700 MB CD)
    2. Can this tools help my problem?
    3. What tools are going to copied if so?
    Hope you guys reply here, really need to get a response
