How to reinstall Windows 8 on my HP pavilion laptop with a USB flash drive?

I bought a HP pavilion laptop with Windows 8, and I have used it for a long time, the Windows 8 is very fast that I like it very much, but something wrong was got with the system, and it can’t run well. I want to reinstall the Windows 8 system on my HP laptop, but it does not support a Windows 8 DVD/CD, so I have to reinstall it with a USB. I want to ask, how to reinstall Windows 8 on my HP Pavilion dv7 with a USB disk?  Thanks inadvance!

When requesting assistance, please provide the complete model name and/or product number of the HP computer in question. HP/Compaq makes thousands of models of computers that are all different. Without this information it may be difficult or impossible to assist you in resolving your issue.

 

When you first setup your computer, you should have created your personal HP Recovery Media. If you didn't create this media, you may need to purchase it from HP.

 

If the computer is still functional and the HP Recovery partition is still intact and undamaged, see "Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 8)" for instructions on multiple ways to start the recovery process.

Have something wrong with your Windows 8 system on HP laptop, you can restore it to the factory mode; Restore Windows 8 to early backup point; Reinstall Windows 8 system; Take your laptop to repair shop for repair;

Reinstall Windows 8 on HP laptop with a USB is very easy nowadays:

1. Create a Windows 8 USB installation disk with a Windows 8 USB install tool - Finalbooster

2. Set HP laptop to boot from the Windows 8 USB disk

3. Get to the Windows 8 installation program
