Try Easy2Boot. Check that your flash drive is a 'Removable' drive.

Probably because it is 'custom' - did you get the blue console window? I suspect not? What problem did you get?

Did you select the correct product key? It must match the version you have.

It depends on the version of Win8 you have - some need a key due to the use of an AutoUnattend.xml file by Easy2Boot.

For instance the 90-day Enterprise Evaluation Win8.1 x64 ISO does not need a key when running from a DVD or flat file install, but in Easy2Boot you need to select the correct key.

 

Please try selecting the correct key - there is a list of keys in E2B, just choose the correct one or add your own key by making a .key file in the Win8 folder.

If you have the same ISO installed already - run Product Key finder in Windows and get the Product Key, then create a .key text file for that key and try it.

1- i used nirsoft product key finder to find key in installed windows using that custom iso

 

this is the key :

MHF9N-XY6XB-WVXMC-BTDCT-MKKG7

 

2- i used kmspico 9.1.3 to activate windows , is that changed the serial or no ?

 

i will test your new method and feedback asap

Setup will look for an install.wim in the \sources folder. Also it will expect it to be a certain index number (not sure if 1 or 2 but it should be the same as a normal install.wim from an MS Setup ISO.) You may also need to add a description (unsure??).

You may also need to flag it with the SKU type  (flags /"Edition ID") - see http://technet.micro...7(v=ws.10).aspx  but I am not sure if this is needed in Win8 (it was in WIn7).

 

It may be better to use Dism /Capture-Image http://technet.micro...y/hh825258.aspx

You  can see it has a FLAGS section, so I would try making your wim file using the /flags "Enterprise" switch and maybe a description too???

 

From http://technet.micro...3(v=WS.10).aspx

When you create a custom .wim file, you must include a name and a description, and you must specify the edition by using the /flags option. All values are required by Windows Setup. If a .wim file does not include these values, then the image will not install properly.
