I dont want to have to ask a friend, i would rather do it myself. I have a mac desktop, is there a way to create a windows 8 recovery disc/usb drive to fix my pc laptop? Can i buy a recovery disc online, i couldnt find any. The PC laptop that isnt working is an acer, if that matters
Logan Gruber: Since you did not list the model number, this is a generic answer. Some or all of it might help you.
You can buy it from Acer. They cost between $20 to $40.
Sadly, Acer Windows 8 system did not come with a recovery partition. M$ convinced them they would not need one because 8 would never crash.
Use windows 8.1 media creation tool

You can buy recovery discs.on Amazon – it's nothing you can't make yourself if you want to take the time, but they can be kind of convenient.
From another Windows 8 PC.
