    But in my Vista Setup when i switched usb media to 8, i deleted all the partition except that [data partition]
    Unallocated space has been created and i hit enter to that. I didnt partition the space neither format it.

    Next Boot gave me BCD invalid or missng. Why?
    According to above info a System reserve should have been created along with Win8 C: and i was to expect a correct Boot.

    Why the BCD error?

    I have no idea? Maybe your hard drive has issues like bad sectors or something?

    Windows 8 Base
    Windows 8
    Windows 8 Pro
    Windows 8 with Media Center

    both x32 & x64 archs UNTOUCHED as it where from MSDN where they got downloaded from.

    I use that DVD because i have 8 different Win for ALL needs.

    I still dont understand though what this slipstream version has to do with the <F12> Boot Selection Menu.

    Please explain.

    It's still legal if you use your bought and paid for product code though. All in one install media has been mentioned before. There are even tutorials on the W7 sister site. I missed the "greek torrent site" part though. I must have read it too fast the first time. This thread is pretty well dead anyway there is nothing more I can add to it. Also there was no discussion on how to cheat activation etc. I do see your point now though.

    EDIT: Wait a minute that second quote isn't even in this thread!

    After reading the Win8 Link about how to UEFI Win8 Install i now know how to perform it myself. But i cannot initiate the UEFI process because:

    I still dont understand though what this slipstream version(4 x 32 & 4 x64) has to do with the <F12> Boot Selection Menu.

    The Uploader(in the greek torrent site) said that this slipstreamed DVD has been made by nLite but the embedded Windows 8 versions of it remained UnTouched.

    That leaves the question as to why since the versions embedded are UnTouched, the <F12> Boot Selection menu only displayes usb/cd/dvd/network as booting methods AND NO UEFI Boot antwhere in that list.


    I'am upgrade Windows since i bough a new Lenovo for 14,99$ but still prior of doing that i need the OS Setup first in an UEFI way.

    If i was to bough a new Windows 8 Pro x64 Retail DVD would the missing UEFI option appear? and why doesn't now?

    It would be nice for all of us to have an explanation on that issue and me starting finally the UEFI 8 Setup.
