My SSD crashed, with the boot program on it. Can I get my HDD to boot  the comp? It's not partitioned for it. I have a 32 gb 3.0 flash drive. Running 8.1. Already tried to recover, and restore the ssd, partition isn't there. I think it's toast.

A couple more details. I'm hearing a beeping sound when I power up now. The ssd isn't even recognized when I scan the comp. If I use this comp, also a dell, and running 8.1 to load my flash drive with 8.1, will it boot my laptop, then can I set up my hdd to boot?
