win8logoThis post will show you how to:

1 – Create a Windows 8 Recovery Disc (CD or DVD).

2 – Create a Windows 8 Recovery Flash Drive.

Recovery media will help you troubleshoot, fix, refresh Windows 8 in the event of a problem.


Create a Windows 8 Recovery Disc

*Note – To use the recovery disc you need recovery media that matches your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit).


– Insert a blank CD or DVD.

– Press the Windows + R keys (run command) > type recdisc and click OK.


– Choose the drive containing your blank media and click Create disc.


– That’s it!



What mine look like:





Create a Windows 8 Recovery Flash Drive

*Note – To use the recovery drive it needs to match your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit).


– Insert your flash drive now.

– Press the Windows + R keys > type recoverydrive.exe and click OK.


– or from the Metro, oh wait, :roll: , the Modern Windows UI, click the Search charm >

type recovery drive > click Create a recovery drive



Click Next


Select you flash drive and click Next. (Be darn sure you picked the right drive)



You’ve been warned. Click Create and you’re done!
