How to Create a Bootable USB or DVD with a Windows 8 or 8.1 ISO


This tutorial will show you how to create either a Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 bootable USB flash drive or DVD to use to install the Windows 8 or 8.1 with.

Windows 8 and 8.1 System Requirements

Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

Graphics card: MicrosoftDirectX 9 graphics device or higher

Additional requirements to use certain features:

  • To use touch, you need a tablet or a monitor that supports multitouch.

I dont know why yet but in step 5: it says: "The Selected File is not a valid ISO file. Please select a valid ISO file and try again"
and im trying the 64bit version. Any ideas?



Hello VRchaos, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Did you download the ISO from here? Windows 8 Consumer Preview ISO formats

It may have been corrupted during download if interrupted. You might see if downloading another copy may work.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Hello Mirac,

Are you able to do so in a Windows 7 to create it instead?

In Windows 8, you might see if you may be able to use PowerISO instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for this great forum and wonderful tutorials. Just wanted to let you know about this program:
Rufus - Create bootable USB drives

I used it to put the Windows 8 Consumer Preview ISO on USB. Seems to work perfectly: fast, simple, free.
The thing I really like about it that is also works from Windows XP. So no more Diskpart, Bootsect, ISO extract and copy, it's all integrated in this nice utility. Maybe this looks like an advertisement, but I can assure you that I have nothing to do with this program (just wished I could be that smart....)

Again, thanks for this site!!

Hello, I wanted to install a 64 bits windows 8 consumer preview in dual boot with a vista 32 bits. I followed the steps in the tutorials to create a bootable usb but it fails because of a missing bootsect.exe. The procedure to get bootsect.exe on microsoft.com only applies to those who bought windows 7 on the store. Is there an other recommended way to get bootsect.exe ?
Thanks

When I run setup.exe from the sources folder, the application raises an error panel because it's a 64 bits application run from a 32 bits vista.
When I was trying (see previous post) to make a 64 bits Windows 8 USB drive (I mean the step to create the USB bootable drive, not the W8 installation itself), the application said that it could not create the boot on the USB drive because bootsect was missing to create a 64 bits boot header from a 32 bits vista OS.
I guess that unless I can get bootsect.exe to create a 64 bits boot from a 32 bits OS, I can only install W8 32 bits.
Thanks.

Sorry smylp,

I forgot about that. I'm more awake now :eek:

If you have a friend with a 64-bit Windows, you could use it to create the 64-bit Windows 7 bootable USB with.

Hello Kostas,

The ISO you downloaded may have been interrupted while downloaded and/or got corrupted. You might see if downloading a new copy may work.

In addition, if it's a linux type ISO, then you would not be able to use it since it's not Windows OS based.

I don't know why, but I've done like you said. I put the usb in the USB port, and in the boot menu I've tried them all (USB-HDD, USB-CDROM,USB-ZIP, USB-FDD). None of them worked. What can I do?

USB-HDD is the one you want. If it didn't work, then that's because it wasn't made well, for some reason or another.

Or you could try another USB slot. Choose one directly attached to the motherboard, and not the system case or a hub.

If you're trying in 3.0 port, use a 2.0 instead to try.

When I issued the "clean" command on my 64GB USB drive, I got this message:

DiskPart has encountered an error: Access is denied
See the System Event Log for more information.

It did delete the existing partition. I don't know if it's related, but this drive shows up as having only 58GB, even in diskpart.

Hello Cly, :)

Does the USB flash drive have any sort of write protection (hardware/software) enabled on it?

Could you also post a screenshot showing the USB in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to see if it may help?

I don't know of any write protection. It is a Team X101 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model TG064GX101LX which you can find here: Newegg.com - Team X101 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model TG064GX101LX

I attach a screenshot from Disk Management. It only shows one partition. Diskpart also shows only partition.

Cly,

It doesn't mention that it has a write protection option. I don't see a screenshot in your post though.

Have you tried to format the USB flash drive?
