How do I create recovery media in Windows 8.

Type 'recovery' on the start screen to begin a search.

Click on the 'settings' option to get the right results.
Next click on 'Create a recovery drive' from the list of results.
Tick the box next to 'Copy recovery partition'.

Then click 'Next' to continue.
Now plug in your USB stick, its most likely going to need a 32GB stick but some will fit on a 16GB stick.

Once the USB stick shows in the available list, select it and click 'Next' to continue.
All the data on the USB stick will be wiped, so if you're sure, continue by clicking on 'Create'.
The process can take quite a long while, on some systems it has been known to take hours.

Click 'Finish' to close the window.
That's it you have created your recovery media. Now keep the USB stick safe for future emergency use.
