    MY USB does not show up. In that case what do i do? IF this is windows 8 and the USB is windows 8.1 does that make a difference?

    Legacy first, but you can also try to just put the USB to the top, without changing boot mode and see if that works.

    Leave boot mode on UEFI and just change the boot priority, as told above and reboot with F10 key, if that does not work (ex. no boot from USB) then change boot mode to legacy first and reboot again by pressing F10 key while in BIOS

    I have no clue what windows you have on USB and what Windows you have installed on PC. I think startup recovery should work with any windows version but I never tried that so I'm not sure

    If you do not know how to install new windows you will most likely permanently lose your data

    In order to fix your PC you need to click on "Repair my computer"
    Then select an option to called "Startup recovery"

    In the future when things are fixed & running good I suggest making a system image with Macrium Reflect Free

    I suggest it because I use it & it works good.
    I use the paid version because of the boot time recovery environment.
    If you try it format your USB as NTFS & not Fat32 so you get 1 big image file instead of a bunch of 4 GB files.

    Well when i booted from the USB like mentioned above it took me to the Windows 8 setup. Do i access "Repair my computer"
    Then select an option to called "
    Startup recovery" from that prompt or is that soethign else entirely?

    The link that says "Repair my computer" found on setup screen will offer several options.
    you need to choose "Startup recovery"
