This question already has an answer here:
I downloaded a student version of Windows 8 Pro and currently have it as an ISO. It tells me that I have to put it in a dvd in order to be able to install it, but I don't have access to one. Would I be able to install and run Windows 8 using Virtual Clone Drive? Also, by doing this, would I be able to keep the files, apps and services like Windows 8 promises to do?
Keep in mind that I'm extremely un-techy and unfamiliar with computer programming and the like.
