    Windows 8 bootable DVD


    Hi,
    i want to make a windows 8 bootable installation DVD using the setup files stored in my computer which i have previously copied from win 8 dvd. But i don't have the win 8 boot information file or .bif file to make a bootable disk. can anybody know where to download that .bif file or any other method to make bootable disk.
    Note that i don't have windows 8 installlation disk nor i have its iso, only have those setup files.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use oscdimg or mkisofs to make a bootable iso if that is what you are after.

    Not clear what you did. Do you have one directory with files inside - was it a direct copy and paste from the dvd drive?

    Rt click it >properties>unblock>apply>ok

    Then extract it onto your drive. You should have C:\ISOMAKER folder

    Inside that rt click and run as administrator on bootiso.cmd. It will ask you to browse to the folder containing your windows setup files.
