comment How to get IPv6 of a website?
@mhmdhsenkamal ping doesn't use nslookup directly, but it does basically the same thing internally. In order to ping something you need to know its IP address. And in order to find an IP address, you must do a nameserver lookup. However, a nameserver lookup can return an IP address which you might not be able to ping.

comment Is it possible to create a reference Surface Pro 3 with all the required software and capture to be deploy to 15 Surface Pro 3
You can do this the same way you would for any other OS deployment... using SCCM, MDT, or whatever imaging software you usually use. Do you have an existing OS deployment platform?

Flash drive is better. You're going to need a flash drive (at least 256 MB) and a separate PC with the same version of Windows 8 or 8.1. I'll edit my answer to have instructions.

What version of Windows is it? And does the computer have a CD/DVD drive, or do you have a spare flash drive around?

@RandytBaker so it's going through the "repairing" screens and then it gets stuck on a blank screen with nothing showing?
