Help please! I just built my own custom pc, hopefully everything is set up properly. Now, I need to download an operating system onto it. I have a free download of Windows 8.1 because I am a student, I have a 4gb flash drive, and I have a laptop. Please explain in simple terms how to get that free copy of Windows 8.1 on to that flash drive and then into my custom pc. Also, I want to put the operating system on my ssd because that is what I was told to do. I think I need to make my flash drive a bootable one somehow but do not have a clue. I also keep reading mixed instructions on how to do this. Thank you so much.
