Well, i tried it

WinsetuptoUsb isnt working, it says textsetup.sif isnt found in the iso, so i unpacked the iso and checked if it's in the i386 folder, and it is.
Status 18 error is because of textsetup.sif btw
Then i downloaded Rufus (its still updated)to make a bootable usb stick, and made one from that iso i sent you.
And it boots into windows setup....
Without changing to IDE or anything (tested on the wifes laptop)
Moto G 16Gb & Mt15i Xperia Neo
Bootloader unlocked, custom recovery, rooted. Rom: Changing frequently
