I've been attempting to create a recovery flash drive for a windows 8 machine with no luck.
When I open the recovery manager software it says to insert my media device and when I stick in the flash drive nothing happens. I did a little digging and found out the HP software won't recognize a flash drive as media you want to use if windows 8 says it is not removable storage.
I would be willing to go out and buy a second flash drive from a separate manufacturer, but not if I'm going to have the same results.
Does anybody have any ideas why the drive wouldn't show up as removable storage, or if there's a way to change how windows 8 sees the drive?
