I'm not happy about the lack of recovery media with most branded Win8 machines.
Not sure if it is MS's fault or not. My wife's HP laptop allows creation of recovery media, which I've done. I'd love to use a regular Win8 iso though to format it. Most systems don't allow you to make them, so if the hard drive crashes a month after the warranty ends. You are...attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis.
