I have an asus laptop. This is my only way of doing my school work. I was a windows 8 laptop origionally but it automatically updated to windows 8.1 and i installed windows 7 on it myself. recently I have expreienced a problem with it to where it would not boot up at all. I continued with an endless loop and would not boot up to anything. My warrenty ran out last month so I can send it in for repairs unless I pay $80. I have a windows 8 product key and before I make a bootable usb flash drive I want to completely wipe my hard drive. Can someone please tell me how I can completely wipe my hard drive befor installing a new operating system. I want to make sure I do everything correctly before I start. I do not have a cd burner and my home desktop is an xp so it is limited to what it can even do at all. I just need a way to make a usb flash drive that can completely wipe my system so I can clean install windows 8.
