    So I purchased a 32GB DVP8 and created a usb drive to move the recovery partition as recommended by MS and dell due to hard drive size limits. I just purchased a 64gb unit and want to restore the 32gig unit and give it to my son. when I go to recovery it asks for the USB media to be put in. I put it in then it says I need to be plugged in. as we all know the plug is in the same port as the usb drive.

    anyone know how this can be done?

    thanks,

    I tried doing that exact same thing, I am curious to see if it is possible.

    I find it best to use a microSD card and plug it in.

    Also, you could find one of those doohickeys that charges and lets you use USB for some reason. They exist.

    Sound good, I would definitely try that.

    I have a blog post on how to charge the Venue 8 Pro and connect it to USB devices, but I don't have enough posts here to post the URL. it's mentioned in some other threads though.

    Do not restore, perform a clean install and it should work without the tablet plugged in
