There are many ways to install Windows 8 on a PC. Before beginning the procedure, you need to create a bootable installation media from the ISO file to be able to install Windows 8 on your machine. You can use a USB flash drive, external hard drive, or DVD to create the installation media. Following are the some of our guides that will help you create an installation media using the ISO file:

Once you have a bootable Windows 8 installation media, you are good to go with the below mentioned procedure.

NOTE: We assume that you have enabled USB boot feature in the BIOS (if you are using USB as the installation media).

Step 1: Connect the Windows 8 bootable USB to the PC or insert the bootable DVD into the optical drive tray and reboot your machine.

Step 2: Press any key on the keyboard if you see “Press any key to boot from CD or DVD” message on the screen. But if you are booting from a USB, Windows will automatically start loading the required files to start the setup process. Once you press the key (if you are using DVD to boot) you will see Windows loading all the files required to begin the setup process.
