    I tried to dual boot windows 10TP with windows 8.1 on my Gateway laptop. I was not given the option of choosing a partition for Windows 10 so it installed and replaced Windows 8.1.

    I did, when I bought the computer, copy the system image to a flash drive using Gateways recovery program.

    Now, lets pretend that I'm a complete idiot and will someone please spell out for me the process of using the flash drive to reinstall Windows 8? I seem to be missing something and its becoming very frustrating. Any help is immensely appreciated.
