here are the tricks, steps, tutorial to deal with windows 8,

OEM desktop/laptop usually installed with lots of software that you wish they are not there at the first place, so the best method is, clean format,

1. prepare the media
new pc uses UEFI, and based on my trial and error, when bios is set to UEFI, they dont recognize non-UEFI device in the boot menu,

so we need to prepare UEFI pendrive, we can use microsoft Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool, free from ms store, but UEFI only support FAT32, so regedit.exe, HKCU\Software\Microsoft\ISO Backup Tool\ create DWORD DisableFormat , value = 1

2. msdn iso files
en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso (x64 windows 8 core & pro)
en_windows_8_x86_dvd_915417.iso (x86 windows 8 core & pro)

you need languages pack file if you want to convert win8 single language from eg, english to japan or etc


3. for win8 single language, you need leaked win8 single language iso,
basically, google Windows 8 SL x64,

following dism command are useful in this process,

dism.exe /Mount-Wim /WimFile:E:\win8\sources\install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:E:\win8m

dism.exe /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:E:\win8m /commit

dism.exe /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:E:\win8m /discard

oscdimg -bE:\win8\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lwin8 e:\win8 f:\win8.iso

4. audit mode
