Create Reliable Windows 8.1 Install Media For Your Surface Pro

Recommended Posts


Once in a while, I write something, not expecting much. Months later, I realize the article's popularity continues to grow. Here's just such a piece, from back in Sep 2013 called:


Rufus takes 5 minutes to create a UEFI bootable USB 3.0 flash drive for Windows 8.1 installation



Visitor davepermen was reading an article about using Rufus to create a bootable ESXi USB drive, for installation to itself. He apparently also owns a Surface Pro, decided to give Rufus a go, and found success, then typed up this comment.


Free software, no adware, no catch. Just a simple and effective and fast utility I thought I'd share. Especiallyl given there seems to be less and less of it for Windows these days.

i would prefer http://www.wintobootic.com/ WiNToBootic  it's pretty much the same, but with rufus i had some issues with some windows versions and different usb sticks. With WINToBootic it worked every time flawless and it is so easy to use that you don't need any guidance.

      Here's a really neat utilities for all artist that has the Surface Pro. This does work on my Surface Pro.
      This is a short-cut keys/menu that you can load with your favorite drawing apps. Highly recommend it.
      Note: you will need to install Autohot keys first before the ArtDock will work. Link: http://www.autohotkey.com/

      I bricked my Surface Pro 2 all by myself.  I have tried various techniques from the Microsoft site.  Basically, I get to a point where either my system drive is locked or I am asked for drivers so the machine will recognize drives. If I don't use a USB drive to boot, the machine goes to the UEFI screen.   Any ideas or help available? - Steve
