Many are eagerly waiting to have first look of Windows 8 on your PC screen. Installing Windows 8 on PC which runs Windows 7 or Windows XP is not a hard task you can easily do it. However, before that, the pain of burning the downloaded ISO file on a DVD or on a USB pen drive to get the installation ready also makes it a killing task. We shall show you how you can relax and enjoy the complete features of Windows 8 on your existing PC without going through any of the above cumbersome exercises and run the new operating system in less than half the time.

This How to will reveal the installation of Windows 8 on any USB storage and then running the operating system directly from the USB drive, itself. You will not have to go through any of the painful set-up procedures that the set-up installer asks, while installing Windows 8 on your PC. All you need to do is download a simple utility, a 16GB or higher USB storage drive, the Windows 8 ISO file, WinRAR archiver and your existing PC. Before we begin, we would like you to know that using a USB pen drive will suffice, but since the speed of a regular USB pen drive is very sluggish, I recommend using an external USB storage drive.


You must have Pen Drive of At-least 4 GB fully formatted. Your PC must be on XP or Windows & with Winrar installed on it. Extract the file ‘install.wim’ from the Windows 8 ISO file using WinRAR File 'install win' will be located in 'source' folder and it is of 2GB. Extract your file to desktop. This is the reason why I advice you to have pen-drive of 4GB. Now Download Gimage X . Extract the files from Gimage X Zip and store all the files in to a folder on desktop.Now, before we use the Gimage X, we have to prepare the USB drive for installing Windows 8. Make sure you have all your data backed up from the drive, as we would need to clean out the drive completely.

Insert your Pen-Drive in USB port of computer and wait till your system recognise new drive. After the process complete open command prompt by typing cmd in search box and insert the command one after one as figured out below. If you are not typing correctly you can copy paste from below.
