I know this might have been asked in the past, but I'm trying to make a bootable DVD from a Windows 8 install disk. I copied all the files from the Win8 installation disk to the HDD, took a few files I didn't need out, and added a couple of my own. Now, I have all the files I want to make a bootable DVD from on my HDD (D:\Windows8\ ), can someone tell me when I go to write all the files to an ISO file, I checked off "Make Image Bootable", then I go to write the ISO, now it's asking me for a "You have not selected a file to act as a boot image!". Where would I find this boot image file on the Windows 8 installation disk?


Lastly, is it possible to take an ISO file and, instead of writting to a disk, you would write the ISO to files on your disk, so that you can modify the ISO? I would appreciate it if anyone can assist me concerning this matter.

Thank You.

This guide should still apply to Windows 8.


You can usually extract ISO files using normal compression programs - WinRAR, WinZip, 7-Zip etc.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!
