Support creating win 8.1 Recovery usb Flash without win8

by Rising123 / August 14, 2014 11:25 PM PDT

Hello.

I got an unhappy message while sitting down to read my morning news sites and a cup of java.

The error i got was 0xc0000034.

'0xc0000034' errors and other critical malfunctions can arise when the Windows operating system becomes overloaded with invalid system references, as well as corrupted and deleted registry files. These problems commonly occur due to a lack of regular PC maintenance. As a computer operating system gets older, errors and crashes start to become more frequent and problematic.

Now, every where i look about recovery, they all say "well, that's easy, just make a recovery disc with the windows 8 recovery tool".

Here is the annoying part, how do i do that? cause all sites seem to forget that searching for how to do that is basicly cause i CANT get into windows and make the tool.

Can anyone help me out on how i create a Flash USB for Windows 8.1 so i can recover my OS?

Thank you very much!

btw, WHY is this so hard to do?????

Thank you for your time answering.

Non of the above will help me, just amazed how difficult MS makes this, i have an OEM installation, so i cant download win 8 with my product key to make an image on another comp.

And i cant access windows, and i dont have another comp with windows 8, and cant seem to find anyone either.

Guess il just go send a rage mail to MS Wink


Thanks again!

OEM = just that.

Now who supplied that pre-installed should have the restore media. One of the faults folk are pointing out is that you need a working PC to fix many non-working PCs. Or you take it to the shop?

There are downloading ISO images of Windows 8 out there but the make/model is missing so I'll just end with a mention of Digital River.

you buy the restore media from the maker (such as Dell or Acer or whatever OEM made your PC). Microsoft won't support OEM versions, that's part of the task of the OEM (that's why they get it so cheap).

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
