  1. Hi, Making bootable windows 8 disc. I've followed the guide but the disc refuses to boot at all. Burned 9 discs so far, non of them bootable. The operations ended successfully each time. Used ver 2.5.0.0 and 2.5.8.0 Ran as Admin. Used 2 different burners. Used a known bootable disc files as source and still did not boot. Tried the discs on 3 different PCs, didn't boot on any of them. Extracted boot image info from a known bootable disc. Changed dvd brand. Burned under windows 7 compatible setting. Non of these worked, I'm clueless, what's wrong here? Windows 10 x64 Log file attached for recent operation. Thank you. ImgBurn.log

    Creating bootable disc does not boot.

    Now I feel like a total idiot. I had my doubt about EFI and actually turned it off on Windows 7 disc booting once, then enabled it again. Now I've tried the burned discs I made in Legacy mode, they booted fine **face palm** Thank you @LIGHTNING UK! and sorry for all the troubles, There is no way to make bootable EFI on disc? @dbminter I guess it was all my idiocy fault. Even the bad sector disc booted fine in Legacy mode. Sorry.

    Creating bootable disc does not boot.

    I've been trying on clean copy to minimize my errors first, I'm not modifying an installation, right now just trying to add the PID to bypass OEM error to get it work on the obsolete laptop. Also trying to copy clean Windows 7 iso and didn't boot. Now I've tried this: Imgburn> (Working windows 8 bootable disc) > Copy image. Imgburn> Blank DVD > Burn the image > I get "Disc need formating" and it's stuck on 99%. Used Nero to burn that exact image on the same disc, burned successfully and booted to windows setup. Must be something with Imgburn, it hasn't been updated since 2013, so that's most likely why. Now the DVD RW is corrupted and unusable after being burned with Imgburn, great, total waste of 13 DVDs. I've the original iso's burned on discs from back then. The original iso can burned with any tool and it is bootable, it looses the bootable feature once the iso has been extracted (to my know). Thank you for trying to help me on this. As I was writing, finished burning another clean copy of windows 7 and failed to boot. Used Imgburn to verify Disc with Iso image, I got +99 miscompare (errors in sectors) So my guess is Imgburn is bad with newer hardware. I'll find another way. Thanks again.

    I did burn them with Imgburn in the 12th tries before. Now the last one DVD RW failed to boot too. However in Imgburn it says disc is bootable??

    Here you can see in the attachment, view of the image iso after burning on disc and the source folder on Hard drive. You can tell by the address bar. Now I just realized I had DVD RW after wasting 12 DVD R lol. This time, trying to follow site suggestion by making an iso file first with Imgburn, then using windows to burn it on disc.

    Source folder, where it is treated as root, everything inside that folder will be imported to burn. Look at the guide (step 4). Now I tried burning using different PC completely and I still can't get it to boot. Worth mentioning? I used the original bootable disc, after where it says "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD" I pressed space and swapped the disc with the unbootable one I just made, windows installation continue to setup just fine. I have no idea at all at this point.

    The content of that folder. It's bootable on USB drive.

    Creating bootable disc does not boot.

    Here what I'm trying to do, I've the official Windows 8 iso, but want to add some updates and hotfix with it and give to my sister, since her laptop won't install windows unless it has the PID along, plus disc is more fool proof, so she won't end up modifying files by accident. Just making everything easier. Windows Media creator require an iso to burn, so I used Imgburn to turn that folder into an iso file, and burned it with Windows Media Tool, still didn't boot. Can't seem to find another way to create bootbale disc?

    Thanks for the reply. I've followed that guide step by step. Program is running under Windows 10 x64, trying to make windows 8 installation disc to be used on laptop. Yes, I made a shortcut and changed it to windows 7 compatibility. I did copy the files on USB stick and worked fine, but still want to make disc to give it to my sister. I made a bootable installation disc with Imgburn couple years ago, but maybe I was using Windows 8.1 then? Not sure. Any suggestions?
