    Before installing Windows 8, first check whether your system have necessary hardware configuration that are required
    for Windows 8. To install Windows 8 from ISO file, you help to burn ISO file to a DVD by using any CD or DVD burner software
    such as NERO, Imgburn, etc. These are not burned as you make a data DVD.

    After burning the DVD, put it in DVD drive. Configure the BIOS to boot up from DVD-ROM drive. Press enter key when you are
    asked to boot up from DVD-ROM drive. On screen instructions to install Windows 8.

    Dear friend,

    You can install Windows 8 OS through .iso file by extracting it to Pen Drive.

    Just extract the .iso file in your pen drive.

    Now, just restart the PC.

    Here, change the Boot Menu Startup.

    Give priority to USB Removable Device as first.

    Then, give priority to Hard disk.

    Follow the instructions to install Windows 8.

    It will restart many times during installation.

    Finally, Windows 8 will be installed successfully.

    Hi Friend,

    You would need an ISO extraction tool or a writing tool such as nero suite to write the ISO image file onto a DVD.

    Either you can find Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool at the official Microsoft website you will get all instruction for creating a bootable DVD or USB drive with this tool.

    First you just download this tool and along with the ISO file copied onto the DVD/USB drive, run this tool.

    You can create bootable Disk with this tool.

    At the next time system boots, enter the BIOS and set the boot device priority first to DVD/USB.

    Then proceed with the installation.........

    Thank You.
