    Indeed so. I made one with the MS tool, and got the same errors listed here.

    After some research... I downloaded another ISO, and then burned it on the same machine, same DVD burner, but with CDBurnerXP's Iso burner, and tada, it worked.

    I kind of which I had used the original ISO, but I wasn't interested in burning coasters to test. Hearing another result of not using the MS tool, I'm thinking it's that myself now, but...

    Anyway, another 're-download & re-burn' fix here.

    Did you use a dual layer dvd?

    From MS download page for the iso;

    Note: The .iso file that contains the developer tools requires a large capacity DVD called a DVD-9, as well as a DVD burner that can handle dual-layer (DL) DVDs. Most modern burners should be able to handle this format.

    @Fxt,
    That statement refers to the larger size iso that includes the dev tools.

    I still am trying to get this thing going. Has anyone gotten past this? I redownloaded and returned but no deal.
    Had to install it on VM for now.

    Dual boot windows 7 and 8


    i installed from usb pendrive just fine ( using M$ tool)
    i3 2120
    ASrock h61del mobo
    4 gb ddr3 ram
    no dvd or cdrom drives

    Windows 7 was allready installed so i shrank the win 7 partition by 50gb and created a new partition for win 8
    inserted my pendrive booted from it and windows 8 installed in @15 mins without any problems at all and minimal input from me

    from what im reading (both in this forum and others) the m$ tool doesnt seem to work for every machine the same way it has for me

Hello I did a clean install of windows 8 pro 64 on a new ssd and have it running well (previously running vista 32). Do I need to install my old drivers? I tried to use the old gigabyte disk but it stuffed up the computer and couldn't recognise cd drive after reboot. Are they all necessary?
