Well brato you could just go over to the 8 forum there is a lot of different tutorials over in there - same folks as in here just a different OS. Just register as you did here in 7 forums thats all I did using my current ID for there.
Now I have had a look through then tutorials and they look to me to be quite involved using a stick to install mainly because you will have to make a stick that is bootable.
To give you an idea look at this Create Bootable USB or DVD with Windows 8 ISO
When you say repair the drive Brato mate they are really very very fiddly to do anything with and so cheap now they are treated as throw away item. So it is a real pity you cannot replace the drive mate usually it is only one screw and then just pull the thing out slip the other in and fix in.
Let us know how you go.
