    Just in case you don't know, you need to use a utility like the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool to create the bootable install media.

    The Windows 7 DVD Download Tool will let you create a bootable USB thumb drive from your ISO image. It was made for Windows 7 but works for Windows 8 ISO images also. It can be picky sometimes if the ISO image was modified. Once you download your Windows 8 ISO image you can use this utility to create your install media. It doesn't include the ISO image or product code. If you are going to reinstall Windows 8 I would use the Release Preview.
