using UBUNTU – NEED A USB PEN (I have no drive on the asus) here WinUsb (didn’t work)
update: use UNetbootin it works fine, I needed to disable the ubuntu hdd drive in bios for the pen to load. it all went well after deleting my hdd so windows would install.
I cheated a little and went for the enterprise evalution software 90 day trial !!!! its free and works and I’ll source OEM software to use with my original win 8 key asap
