    T200 doesn't boot - how to recover data

    Hello everyone,

    i would like to try to recover data from an Asus T200 (of a friend of mine) that gets stuck at boot screen.

    Usually with normal pc i use some linux live distro to copy everything to an external usb device, but reading this forum seems with this device it isn't possible to boot from an usb linux live (e.g. system rescue cd or even ubuntu).

    What should i try?

    Also i would like to know if it is possible to reinstall (or recover if there is a recovery partition, but how to boot from it?) windows 8 that isn't booting without sending it to assistance.

    Thank you a lot in advance.

    Welcome to the forum

    Read widely in the T100 section with regards to booting from an external device. It is possible, but you'll need to understand the UEFI boot system used on these devices.

    The T100 & T200 are pretty identical internally and many of the wrinkles that apply to one, apply to both models.

    The T100 is exponentially better covered here as it is a hugely popular device.

    Thank you.

    Seems that using an usb keyboard and mice and a uefi capable linux (e.g ubuntu 15.10 or 15.04 that is reported to moreless work) should work, right?

    To enter bios in order to select boot from usb should i use f2 from an usb keyboard (or even from the integrated one?) or volume + powerdown combo at boot?

    Will Magick Stick for T100 work on T200 (after disabling uefi)?
