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.
