    so once my laptop is finished going back the restore point (whenever thats done) and assuming i can get it to go to my desktop. i'll just plug the usb drive into it and follow instructions? i'll have the key, and plugged in for power and Ethernet for secure connection

    No, yes, somewhat..

    If you get back into PC we'll work through it..

    Otherwise well use the media to boot the PC and then use the repair options

    If you boot the media and just follow the instructions - you will be reinstalling windows..

    another dumb question...whats the difference between installing windows8.1 this way versus getting the recovery drive from toshiba? no drivers? no network card? factory software such as the pre-loaded nortons antivirus? or will this just simply restore windows, nothing more?
