    Use Hard Disk Manager 14 on my other PC.

    Just ordered a Dell XPS 18 which is a all in one and sort of like a tablet.
    Anyway it does not have a CD/DVD drive. Right now I have the program on a DVD.

    So what should I use to install Paragon and then also to make a boot to paragon disk.

    Could I use a 32 GB flashdrive to put the disk on?

    To install the program I could try downloading from their website.

    Or should I just go ahead and order a remote CD/ DVD drive that connects by a Usb port. I think they make something like this.

    Thanks for the help

    In principle, you don´t need to use optical disks. Download the installer and save it. Install the program and use the Recovery Media Builder to build a bootable ISO file. Save the ISO file, and use Rufus (https://rufus.akeo.ie) to create a bootable UFD (USB key). Check that you can boot your computer with the UFD.
