    thats some fancy decoder you have (7zip?)
    i extracted the install.wim from iso 3gb.

    then attempted to 7zip, that wim and 7zip barfs. cant open xxx ver 926alph 7zip. too.

    oops ver 9.34 works,,,, had to search for newest alpha. ok its only 213mB file, easy.
    back to work...\

    Sounds like you are on the right track. I take it from your last line above - all completed successfully.

    Would still like to know how you got an illegal copy of Windows 8 on a brand new HP laptop?

    Why not return it and get a legal one?

    it's not illegal
    its just a new HP 17E-067cl (new in box) + new SSD. new on box.
    with oem license, for 8.0.
    my post was why did my hp recover disk fail.
    answer1: windows 8 flash sticks are no good. solved. (only removal sticks work, in dev. manager)
    snswer2: the windows actual. recovery disc feature is dead, due to , HP deleting from the partition
    or MS 8.1 update over orig. 8.0, failed to put it THERE. (not way for me to tell now... water under bridge....)

    i can prove all this, have full receipts. from Tigerdirect dot com. (long time buyer there and new egg big time)
    all of our systems are 100% legit.
    it authenticates. before, 8.1 and after. so..... is legit. it did so in 5 seconds flat , out of box...

    im at store buying more thumb drives now...

    PS the first thumb only burns at 5mb;/s so took two+ hours.
    my 25x speed, thumb is fastest made but will not work with hp recover. (ask HP, about rebecca blunders)
    but no complaints after all 7 DVDs is not in my game plan, i can backup, and go to sleep and let the slow stick burn.
    it's not a problem, it's GREAT.
