As I have shared the process of creating Windows 7 AIO – An ISO Image, comprising all editions in one bootable media earlier, now I am sharing the way of creating Windows 8 AIO (All-In-One) bootable ISO.
Windows 8 ISOs (both x86 and x64).
Windows 8 Enterprise ISOs (x86 & x64) – Windows 8 Enterprise is not available through retail channels. (Optional)
WinRAR / WinZip or other ISO extracting tool
Windows ADK (Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit)
Blank DVD (DVD5 – 4.7GB in size) compatible DVD Burner and CD/DVD burning software (like Nero, Roxio, ImgBurn, etc.)
Windows 8 AIO 16 in 1 FINAL Build 9200 (Permanent Activator Included)
Version's Included in this ISO are: This is Windows 8 Final (Build 9200) x86 (32-bit) Windows 8 x86 Windows 8 N x86 Windows 8 Pro x86 Windows 8 Pro VL x86 Windows 8 Pro N x86 Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x86 Windows 8 Enterprise x86 Windows 8 Enterprise N x86
x64 (64-bit) Windows 8 x64 Windows 8 N x64 Windows 8 Pro x64 Windows 8 Pro VL x64 Windows 8 Pro N x64 Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64 Windows 8 Enterprise x64 Windows 8 Enterprise N x64
Download Windows 8 ISOs from MSDN / TechNet sites and extract to different folders. For instance, I extracted all ISO at following locations (folders):
Windows 8 edition
Windows 8 x64
Windows 8 x86
Windows 8 Enterprise x64
Windows 8 Enterprise x86
You can give any name to the folders.
As I previously blogged, Windows 8 ISO image contains all editions and Windows 8 Product Key defines which edition to be installed. I have unlocked Windows 8 x86 ISO and copied within C:\WIN8AIO which already has two editions i.e. 32-bit versions of Core and Pro in it.
Here’s the chart of Windows 8 different WIM files and their INDEX references which will be required, when we export one edition from a WIM file to another one.
Windows 8 (x86 & x64)
Windows 8 Enterprise (x86 & x64)
Pro – 1
Enterprise – 1
Core – 2
Now run Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment (Command Prompt) as Administrator and then type the following commands:
