Where did you get the idea he was talking about windows 8. No where in his specs or in his cp does he indicate he is using 8.

To the OP please check in the tutorial section of the forums I sure you will find a tutorial that will address your needs. . .good luck. . .

Recovery drives have been a common thing for many years. HP, Dell, Asus, etc have been including recovery drives since XP. . .

To use the OEM manufacturer's side of Windows 8's Recovery, you need a USB drive of not less than 16gb.

Greyed at in this screenshot, as I am not OEM manufacturer's.
