    Hello everyone, new to the forum. Very excited to have a 128gb surface pro on the way! I have a question for the masses though.

    I am a bit OCD about the contents of my HD, particuarly about bloatware, viruses, etc. I tend to periodically wipe my hard drive with DBAN or similar software. With every windows computer I've owned it's been as simple as throwing in the appropriate windows cd after the wipe to get the computer running again. Assuming I make a bootable USB (probably two just to be sure lol) there is nothing preventing me from doing this on the Surface pro right?

    I don't see why it wouldn't work. That's what the recovery image is for, to recover your PC. Haven't tried it myself though, just wanted to give my 2 cents.

    Remember to hold Vol Down when you power it on to boot from the USB.
