    The exact same things happen when I follow your instructions.

    i stick the usb in first, then power it on, then spam ESC before windows gets loaded and select boot options and it still just goes to the black screen with the cursor

    Try this:

    At the Black Screen of Deth, try pressing Windows Key+P. Then hit the Down Arrow key and press Enter.

    Keep Doing it up to 4 times and see if you get anything.

    It just occurred to me, your Monitor Output may be set to a "Second Screen" mode, so Cycle through the settings and see if it does anything.

    Still nothing. It doesn't cycle any screen modes.

    If you are trying to boot from a USB stick for re-installing, you'll have to use F12 or whatever key you use for selecting Boot device. Because I don't see any way around this other than re-installing Windows 8.
