Installing Windows 8 from USB stick to fresh & bare HDD.
So after spending what has to be about 4 or 5 hours trying to find a clear answer then failing miserably, I'm turning to you lot. I'm going to try to keep this as clear and concise as possible because I tend to ramble.
I am building a PC with no optical drive, thus I must install from USB, to a FRESH BARE HDD.
Here are my questions:
1. What Windows 8 version/installer/.iso do I need so that I can install to a FRESH BARE HDD?
(This is crazy important. I cannot tell you how many answers I have found online that are jumblefuckallovertheplace.)
2. In as much detail as you have the time for, how would I go about preparing my USB stick to be booted into and start the install?
After this point I can figure it out, but I just need some help on the USB side of things.
Thanks for any of your time!
