Yes. Make sure that the SSD is the only disk connected to the computer. This will make things simple. After the OS is installed you can add other disks.

It's on a usb and we did nothing (I heard about ISO?). Plugged it in and booted and it says bootmgr is missing and to hit ctrl alt delete to restart.

Use the Win 8.1 DVD to install, and activate using the activation code.

If you don't have backup media or the activation code, we cannot help you here at Tom's. It is against the forum rules.

If you have a valid product key, just download the OS on to the SSD and activate it. This is no big deal and the safest way to install the OS.

Dude...the boot manager is missing therefore the installation cannot commence.

New download - then activate. Time is the only issue here.
