This question already has an answer here:
Ok so I have left my USB pen in work and I want to install the Windows 8 Consumer Preview onto my netbook.
Can I setup a partition on my netbook, put the Windows installer files onto that and boot from it?
I have used the computer manager snap in to create an 8GB NTFS partition on my hard drive. I have then download the Windows 8 ISO. I guess I now need to do three things.
- Add an entry in the Windows 7 boot loader pointed to my new partition
- Extract the contents of the ISO onto the partition
- Change the properties of the partition in some way to make it bootable
- Is this correct?
- How do I go about achieving the above?
