How To Create an ISO Image File From a Windows 8-8.1Installation Disc

I’ve read other tutorials and some say “Creating a Windows 8 ISO from a Windows 8 / 8.1 installation Disc is the same as creating an ISO from any type of disc” that is not true at all, creating an ISO from a Windows 8 / 8.1 Installation disc is not as easy as you might think.

Creating a Windows 8 ISO Image:

1. Download and install Magic ISO Maker.

2. Run Magic ISO a link of magic ISO will show on the notification area right click it.

3. Select Make CD/DVD Image…

4. Choose “Source CD/DVD-ROM” where you have the windows 8 disk located.

5. Enter output file and name it.

6. Choose ” Standard ISO image file (.ISO) ” for Output format.

7. Click “Ok” to process.
