Please lower the volume down. I'ts a little bit noisy. Thanks.

In this video, I am going to install Windows 8 from using UltraISO, to installing Windows 8 in continuous 46 minutes video. There will be some little captions telling what I'm trying to do or what I was doing.

so I'll be showing:
- UltraISO
  • selecting ISO
  • writing files from ISO to USB drive
- Selecting USB to boot
- Installing Windows 8
- Showing the dual boot screen
- Seting up the Windows 8 for the firstime
- Seting up my dual monitor in Windows 8
- Playing with the apps and features
  • IE
  • Video
  • Music
  • Pictures
  • Messaging
  • Mail
- Enabling Administrator mode
- Installing my System Power application
- Showing who boots faster

Not sure, but the Microsoft Windows 7 USB Download Utility works fine. A couple of clicks and done

It's always good when members make video tutorials though

It won't write Win 8 RTM to USB for me but it'll write to DVD's just fine.

I tired to install windows 8 by way of usb flash drive method. I got as far as to which drive i wanted to install windows 8 on i have 2 hard drives 1 tb and a 1.5tb i formatted both drives thinking this program was gonna install then the install failed said something about being unable to install. I was pissed off then i had to reinstall windows 7 Ultimate all over again. My flash drives are 16GB and a 4Gb and the 16GB had the windows 8 software on it.

That never worked for me. I always look for an easy way of doing things but it keeps failing so I end up doing the long way, but I think it's much safer and at least you know what's happening.

Man .. at least think of what happened first then try to do it all over again, try different flash drives, make a 2 copies and use the other one if the other one failed. Some files might be corrupted while you're on the process of transferring files from the ISO to flash drive.

Making a video is more frustrating than installing.
