    I have problem with the boot image of win8 recovery cd


    Hey guys,
    Its like i got the iso of the recovery cds of windwos 7, vista and so on....
    i made a multi boot cd of them.
    but i want to add windows 8 to it. it looks like i need the iso for that pupose.
    i tried in windows but i only put the recovery things in my usb!
    i tried making the iso with power iso but it asks for a boot image .
    so my question is where is the boot image located?

    Thanks,
    Vardhan

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    Do you want to create a Windows 8 ISO?
    If so, your installation DVD is already that ISO or your System Factory Restore Discs (if created) serve the same purpose for an OEM product

    OR

    Do you want to create a System Image for future restoral purposes?

    If so, I would recommend using this free software: Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download


    Good luck,

    i downloaded the windows vista and 7 recovery disc iso' and make a multi boot dvd
    since i cudn't boot the windows 8 x64 one i extracted the boot image from the windows 7 iso using power iso and added it to windows 8, after hours of trying. Now all i want is the files from windows 8 x32 recovery disc. u get get it from the recovery option in the search.

    So, you want to make a Win 8.0 ISO for a friend? Try this but please make sure you select "install by creating media" so you don't start the actual installation process:

    Download Windows 8 ISO (x86 / x64) File Directly From Microsoft | Redmond Pie

    or this:

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    One of these should work for your purposes.


    Good luck,
