    Install Windows 8.1 on Surface Pro from ISO - Please Help


    I have a Surface Pro 64GB, 64GB SDXC, and a 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive. I wiped out the recovery partition a long time ago. I have downloaded Windows 8.1 Enterprise using my MSDN subscription. How do I install Windows 8.1 using the ISO and the 32GB flash drive? I have run Rufus but the flash drive does not appear in the Device area. The ISO is on the SDXC drive and when I double click the ISO or try to mount it I get an error that says it cannot mount the file. My question is, how do I install Windows 8.1?
