    hi, I’m new to this forum and I apologize if I established in wrong section. I recently bought a surface 2(256gb-I hope I have right model) I got from craigslist and I’m trying to format but I’m having a hard time getting it to do a factory reset or whatever to give it a fresh start and it has win 8 and I can’t seem to find a solution to help get this going. If anyone would mind helping me that would be awesome or maybe some links to get .iso to boot from my cruzier 8gig thumb drive to reinstall.

    Thank You!!!!

    Thanks for replying Zain Faiyaz!! That’s actually what I wanted to do but I can’t get past how to install with iso. So do you have any recommendations on how I can do it with thumb drive and win 8.1 iso and also I don’t have access to the login password cause the guy forgot(Supposedly)

    Hope one of them will help you get the Surface up and running. Drivers may be a pain but hopefully it will detect the wifi card and let you get online to do the loads of W/Updates that will be waiting.
