Specs: Windows 8.1 64Bit, Core i3
Can someone please confirm that Windows 8.1 no longer supports creating a Repair Disk. I just searched the system and cannot find it and from what I see online, it does not appear to support it.
Also if true, if anyone has a line into MS, can they please tell someone important that this is an important feature that originally appeared to continue from Windows 7 and should be reinstated.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

That is a USB recovery drive specific to that computer which probably has similar tools as well as the recovery image. Good to a point, especially for a single PC. What I was looking for is what I have for Windows 7 and for the original Windows 8.0 and that is the option to burn a CD with simply the repair tools. The repair disk offers a Start Up Repair, access to System Restore (even when the built in system restore is corrupted or if the machine is unbootable), and the loading of a saved system image and will work for all 12 machines we have at work. The Recovery drive requires one flash drive per machine (or possibly one for each version we have).
Not as good for our purposes.

Shades of Apple approach with Mac OS...
