    Maybe the ESD to ISO option is required from the tutorial under Option TWO. If the .iso is not bootable as UEFI, it won't help to burn it. The process adds a second boot image to the DVD which is not present in the .iso created by the download utility.

    OK newsflash - I am not sure if it is a good ISO - I do not know how to verify that. Maybe it is, since I created successfully a UEFI bootable USB from it?

    Then why ask me this question over and over again? Do you read?
    ... Because I want to make my own bootable in UEFI Win 8 installation disk instead of doing it from USB?? Because DVDs are what you can leave entirely for that as a backup, not USBs on which I delete and add files all the time.
    That's why

    Okay, how do I know if it is bootable from UEFI, maybe it is Bootable from UEFI since I did it fine when using a USB. So is this enough to tell my ISO is bootable from UEFI? (Since I did it successfully from USB). And if it is a good ISO is burning this ISO image to DVD with whatever program I have for burning ALL I NEED to achieve the same - this was my question posts ago but the guy above was just playing a game of words.

    Yes.

    my question is, shouldn't something be added to make it UEFI, like it's done for USB.
    If you have a good ISO, no.

    And in that manner I asked if making a UEFI flash drive and then sending the win 8 files to it. then burning the content from the flash to DVD will do it.
    You can use the ISO.

    Read post four or the above.

    ^ Ok, I read that the first time but I wanted you, sort of, to confirm that all I have to do is burn the iso on DVD and it will boot in UEFI and no need to do anything beyond. Although you didn't answer me directly... I will take this for yes to my question. Thx.. I will test it in the future whenever I need to install windows, for now I alrdy have it so no need to run the dvd.

    Ok I booted in UEFI and in the BIOS I saw in the Boot Option #, CD/DVD: UEFI: (Name of my optical drive)

    ^ That should answer my question that I can boot the DVD in UEFI mode, that's all I wanted to know...
