    Great news. You could boot from the USB to test it, then just back out of Windows setup to return to Windows.

    There's no problem booting. As advised when this screen came I exited, is there any method available where I could verify installation files

    Click image for larger version

    Also have a look at the picture above, I get identical screen (except for EightForums.com) even though I'm installing 8.1?

    I would appreciate some help for this

    Thank you

    Great news.

    If you see that, then it and the installation files are fine. It shows that same screen when installing Windows 8 or 8.1, so it's nothing to worry about. You will see what you are about to install when you get to the "License terms" screen to accept the EULA like below.

    That's very encouraging, I'll report back

    Hello Jduk, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, Rufus would be good to use in XP to create a UEFI USB for Windows 8.

    Hello everbody !
    Nice tutorial !
    But I'm having some issues in pasting the bootx64.efi inside the boot on the E:/
    Says the pen drive dont have space to paste it.
    Can somebody help ?

    *edit*
    Also, i dont see the option Enable CSM on the Boot config
    Maybe its hidden ?
    I have a Dell Inspiron 5437

    Hello Felipe, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, using OPTION ONE would be the easiest way to create an UEFI USB.

    Since your laptop came with Windows 8 preinstalled, you should be fine with your UEFI firmware settings for CSM.

    Guess my message didnt post. I have done the instructions in creating bootable USB flash drive. Problem is, I followed all instructions and changed the settings as instructed, but when I finally told it where to find the ISO file on my laptop, it changed the File System Setting from FAT 64 to something else. Was it supposed to do that? I cant remember what that something else was (I had it posted to you a few min ago, but somehow the post didnt post). So should use the flash drive I have w/the saved settings or re-do the flash drive and after choosing the ISO file, then change it to FAT 32?
