Re: Surface 2 USB Recovery with the latest Drivers & Updates

I created and tested a USB recovery for the Surface 2 using the 8.1 RT RMT ISO with the latest drivers as of Oct 15th, and I also integrated 146 updates into it (all but office 2013).. This makes you have to download and install ALOT less updates (I only had 32! ) after a reinstall, and only 1 reboot is required.

Download HERE (OneDrive)

Extract the zip file and copy/move the files to a 8GB USB flash drive formatted as FAT32, boot from the USB drive. Install like any other Windows. Note:It will not create a recovery partition.

Thanks to moderate over at MDL for the help.

Will this work on the Lumia 2520?
