Hi friends, in this video tutorial you will see how to make a USB stick with Windows 8, for this we use WinToFlash and Demon Tools are free software.
A while ago we presented a software from Microsoft that does the same, it was 7 Windows USB / DVD download tool that I made a video tutorial. Unfortunately 7 Windows USB / DVD download tool does not work very well when it comes to Windows 8, even for Windows 7 problems may occur.
WinToFlash is a software that allows us to quickly put WIndows 8 on a USB stick, job cord goes without errors or other problems.
To put WIndows 8 stick with Win To Flash we need a virtual drive, for this we use Demon Tools is a free software (Lite version) that should not be missing from any PC.
If you want to make a bootable USB stick with Windows 8, we need a Windows 8 course, it is found free in Preview Release version on the Microsoft website, you link below.
I decided to make this tutorial video because I wanted to install Windows 8 the stick and we did, that's because I used Windows 7 USB / DVD download tool, when I boot from the stick I noticed that does not work, the screen The message "Operating system not found" or "missing operating system" do not retain exact. I decided to redo the stick and this time I used Win To Flash and succeeded.
It seems that Windows 7 USB / DVD download tool has some problems that I had the patience to fix them at that time. Today we're timplu sometimes necessary, to resolve errors. Project 7 Windows USB / DVD download tool was somewhat abandoned because Microsoft seems to use open source code for this program, immoral thing considering that Microsoft sells Windows.
However, WinToFlash go and do very well. Be careful while downloading, do not take the first version is an executable that will be filled with bloatware, use the following link or two. Take care and Demon Tools, are full of bloatware software, we must understand that, but are free.

Download Windows 8 Release Preview - free
Download Demon Tools Lite - Free
Download WinToFlash - free

    After you save all the stick, get the formatting (fat32) and then you can put windows on it 8. And WinToFlash formatting but it is better to have them all right.

It is true in this case and if we can create the bootable stick on win xp sp3? and I posted a problem with Camtasia if you can tell me something. Thanks

  6. I tried the program from Microsoft and had no problems .. I also installed win with him (win8)

  9. Hello Cristi, all too good tutorial! I have a proposal for a tutorial, specifically to do a tutorial on "Windows 8 To Go". It would be very useful in my opinion. Goodbye and more tutorials

  10. Do you understand what you like DAEMON complicated when you are PowerISO! I of 2006 since I discovered they use and install, and writing .. why do space and daemon with ImgBurn / CD Burner XP / Nero etc when you can have a program in 2 1?

  11. My suggestion consists of the following programs:
    Rufus or WiNToBootic.Sunt simple programs without daemon tools no other complicatii.Asta inenteles if you decide not to use their own utiitarul created by Microsoft called Windows 7 usb dvd tool.
    Respect.

    It's a matter of habit. Each uses what he wants. Do the tutorials and give example using ... blah, blah, blah and him come and tell you why not use that and use "virtualCD" that is smaller and better and .... empty words. The world is full of critics, people like Cristi, Adrian ... rare, very rare.

    Christ used Daemon Tools Lite because it's free, it would not be good for Power Iso and you come here and brag about using Power Iso (big deal). And I use Power Iso key but with different sites on the net and do not have money for that and if I had I would not give money liciente, as well as Windows. If you still brag using Power Iso take a photo and show you gave those 29.95 $ per licienta, but I bet you key sites on the net!

    We aim for a long time and so I arrived at 8 windows. I have a new system configured by you, ie: MB H61ICAFE: I3 2100-3,1Gb: 8G ram: WD HDD video GT430 500G + Maxtor 80G.
    When I installed version appeared on Windows 8 32 bit and everything was OK.
    8 Win + Win XP. Today I made a stick with win8 / 64biti. But I got the message that the installation can not be installed on the MBR but the GPT. Honestly I have not heard of GPT. Varog if you can enlighten me on how I can do a conversion GPT and MBR if I should do that.
    Thank you for your help.
