    Cannot clean install Windows after deleting my c and recovery partitions

    So, I decided to install Ubuntu, and I thought while partitioning that the recovery partition was useless so I decided to remove that, and what I stated is false because this is a Wimboot installation of Windows, when I attempt to clean install Windows, it greets me with this message after setup is starting:
    Load driver: A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now.

    Note: If the installation media for Windows is in the DVD drive or on a USB drive, you can safely remove it for this step."

    Please note that the only oses I can boot to are the ones from my USB drive, also this does not make any sense as I can see all my drives using diskpart in cmd(using shift+f10) and I have an empty c drive and a useless "recovery"(because it contains a copy of the windows setup that i cannot boot to)

    editx1: usb otg does not fix this issue, neither does attaching a mouse
    editx2: messing with the usb settings in the bios does not help at all
    editx3: managed to get ubuntu finally working, but since it isnt perfect(i have to run some grub commands to boot it) i still want windows 8.1 on my tablet

    Moderators, please move this back to the help section, since I am asking for help on how to reinstall Windows, and I have only chose Ubuntu because it was my only chance of getting even a half-working tablet

    The reason your thread has been moved here is because this is the best place for you to find help.
    But to be honest with you, I don't hold out much hope for you.
    I wish you luck, but you have done a great job of messing things up and as you didn't take a system image before you started tinkering and as the forum is very quiet these days I advise you to post in the MS community forums and XDA as well.

    That said, if you can boot from USB, then I don't understand your problem. Surely you can create a bootable USB drive with Windows on it from another PC

    i also cannot understand what is happening, but considering that WinPE(windows installer environment) can run from ram, the driver may be the driver for the emmc controller or SoC
