    windows 8 image creator that is free?


    Is there a free image creator that can burn an image of windows 8 onto dvds?
    No trial version.
    Can make the size of the hdd image smaller for installing on a smaller hdd.
    Thank you.

    The one I have used for a long time and highly recommend is Macrium Reflect -- and the free version provides all the functionality you need.

    Image backup tools typically only backup the used portion of a partition or drive, so the resulting file(s) are smaller than the original partitions -- but they can not SHRINK the partitions, themselves.

    If you want to image onto a smaller drive, you will have to shrink the original partitions to fit onto the drive.
