that would be awesome!
No, because the proccesor in your prime has an ARM architecture so it wan't boot a 32 bit system. It also doesn't have BIOS to boot from USB.

It depends of performance of your PC.

INSTALL.WIM is 2,5 average size file, so on my I7 the uncompress
got me waiting for about 6 / 7 mins... So try, if u jave a dual core
it's possible u've to wait up to 12 / 15 mins to uncompress it...

If you format the USB where W8 is on, then its normally removed?

No man, u can't format the usb key on which u've installed Win 8.

'cause for the system, it's the C: and so the system partition, u
can't format it, resize it, remove it from usb tray icon...

@pycon: I think he meant that he wanted to format it from Windows 7 (or whatever his other OS is), and I think it's safe to do that.

@k.janku1: That's because Windows 8's dual boot screen is shown AFTER Windows 8 actually boots, so before deleting Windows 8 you first have to remove it from the boot list in "msconfig" (just type that in the search), and if you already formatted your HDD partition where Windows 8 is installed, then your only solution is to repare your MBR using a Windows DVD or some other boot tool like SuperGRUB (it can restore Windows MBRs too, not just Linux!)
