    Hello Kostas,

    The ISO you downloaded may have been interrupted while downloaded and/or got corrupted. You might see if downloading a new copy may work.

    In addition, if it's a linux type ISO, then you would not be able to use it since it's not Windows OS based.

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview 32bit


    I don't know why, but I've done like you said. I put the usb in the USB port, and in the boot menu I've tried them all (USB-HDD, USB-CDROM,USB-ZIP, USB-FDD). None of them worked. What can I do?

    USB-HDD is the one you want. If it didn't work, then that's because it wasn't made well, for some reason or another.

    Or you could try another USB slot. Choose one directly attached to the motherboard, and not the system case or a hub.

    If you're trying in 3.0 port, use a 2.0 instead to try.

    I'd say try different USB. Cuz I can boot from any port and with any setting.

    When I issued the "clean" command on my 64GB USB drive, I got this message:

    DiskPart has encountered an error: Access is denied
    See the System Event Log for more information.

    It did delete the existing partition. I don't know if it's related, but this drive shows up as having only 58GB, even in diskpart.

    Hello Cly,

    Does the USB flash drive have any sort of write protection (hardware/software) enabled on it?

    Could you also post a screenshot showing the USB in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to see if it may help?

    I don't know of any write protection. It is a Team X101 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model TG064GX101LX which you can find here: Newegg.com - Team X101 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model TG064GX101LX

    I attach a screenshot from Disk Management. It only shows one partition. Diskpart also shows only partition.

    Cly,

    It doesn't mention that it has a write protection option. I don't see a screenshot in your post though.

    Have you tried to format the USB flash drive?
