    I had to send my vivotab 8 in to have the ribbon cables replaced. Before I sent it in, the tcch told me to make an image of the drive so I did and saved it to a microsd card. I had upgraded the os to windows 8.1 pro with media center and also had some other software installed. When I got it back I could not restore the image because it said that I had to boot from the installation discs in order to restore the image. Obviously, I cannot do this since I neither have the discs or a way to boot from another drive. I did try tech support at asus but they were unable to help me. Does anyone know how or if I can restore this image?
    Thanks

    Hold down the Shift key (On screen keyboard or physical keyboard) and select Restart.
    Select Troubleshoot, Advanced, UEFI firmware settings or any of the recovery options you need there.

    Hi, my tablet is the Asus TF600T, running under Windows RT 8.1 currently.
    I am wondering if I could use this image to recover my system to Windows RT 8? Can I use the image provided for Microsoft Surface RT?

    I'd give it a whirl. I see no reason it shouldn't work.
