# Inserting the serial number in an ISO

1. In some examples, I have seen that the number of the boot entries of the bootdata option may be even greater than 2. Why this because, apparently, there is only the BIOS and UEFI image?

Thanks

In Windows 7/8/8.1 you will need only two multi-boot entry.

-bootdata:<num>#defaultbootentry#bootentry2

3. A curiosity: The command:

Code:
oscdimg -o -u2 -udfver102 -bootdata:2#p0,e,b"%BaseDir%\dvd\boot\etfsboot.com"#pEF,e,b"%BaseDir%\dvd\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin" -l%iso_volume_label% "%BaseDir%\dvd" "%iso_path%\%iso_file_name%"
is valid to create bootable images for Windows 8.x 32-bit and 64-bit or not?

Thanks

4. Yes.

The boot\etfsboot.com and efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin files are also in the Windows 8 32-bit installation media.

5. I ran this command:

Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools>oscdimg -o -u2 -udfver200 -bootdata:2#p0,e,b"C:\Users\Public\Documents\Windows_8,1_Update_x64_Retail\Extract_files\boot\etfsboot.com"#pEF,e,b"C:\Users\Public\Documents\Windows_8,1_Update_x64_Retail\Extract_files\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin" -lWin81UpdateRetail "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Windows_8,1_Update_x64_Retail\Extract_files" "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Windows_8,1_Update_x64_Retail\ISO_Modified\it_windows_8.1_with_update_x64_dvd_Core-Pro_no_serial.iso"
but I get this error:

Does that mean I could store my Product Key in my computer's UEFI and then wouldn't need to type it in during installation? Or is this only for OEMs?
