If you run into problems with your PC, a USB recovery drive can help you troubleshoot and fix those problems, even if your PC won't start.
This will show you how to create a bootable recovery
(system repair) USB flash drive
in Windows 8
to use to boot to the system recovery options
that can be used to help recover Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, or Windows RT 8.1.
This is basically the same thing as a system repair disc
, but is on a bootable USB flash drive instead.
You must be logged in as an administrator
to be able to create a recovery drive.
