Create Win 8 Boot Disk


I'm trying to format an old PC and trying to create a boot media.

I have the iso of win 8 and the boot creation tool - but it won't recognise any USB I put into it!

Any idea why it won't find the USB to create the boot media on?

make sure you run the tool as administrator and I try usb 2 instead of usb 3 works better, sometimes the usb 3 device disappear while installing windows due to lack of drivers in that specific driver process.

Use Rufus

Use a USB port at the back of the PC

You can also format the USB drive first, although Rufus will do it
