    how do I do one? I click the option like in this video.

    But I do it in the bios. Still it does not fully reinstall windows.

    I'm assuming the 64gb model doesn't have the recovery built in and I'm not doing it correctly? These tablet are so different than pc stuff o_O

    Used usb drive to transfer recovery to it. Restart boots, then goes to keyboard layout, then advanced options. It loops.

    Deleted secure keys and secure boot. Same thing. So?

    You need bitlocker turned on, restart with uefi then disable secureboot and the keys. Launch usb, then full reset.

    If you dont know your bitlocker key you can look it up on a website they give.

    So it looks like to do a full recovery you need a usb cd/dvd drive? I cannot figure it out with usb. I searched and searched.

    So since the CDKEY is built into the bios, can I do a new windows install or will that brick my tab?

    The 64GB model has a hidden recovery partition. Have you deleted it?
    If not, then from bios you can Refresh (i.e . without removing files) or Reset (i.e. factory default).
    If you do not have the recovery partition any more, you will need a usb flash with win 8.1. The key is in the bios, you don't need it unless you want to install a "pro" version.
