I copied the Windows 8 CD to my HDD. I want to convert that folder to an ISO and use that to create a bootable USB.
Please tell me how I can make an ISO image out of that folder containing files.

To do that, at first you will need a ISO image creator tool.
PowerISO can be a good choice as it's interface is easy and making bootable image using this software is straightforward.
Now follow the image to drag and drop files inside PowerISO and select
You will see that it is showing
Non-bootable Image as no boot configuration is added yet. Now to add boot configuration, go to
Action -> Boot -> Add boot information....
Then, in the dialog box click on the file icon beside
File and go to the directory where your Windows 8 files are kept. Then follow the next image to select
All Files(*.*) as the file type.
After that you will find a file named
etfsboot. Select it and hit OK. Then you will see in lower left corner of PowerIso, now it is showing as Bootable Image, which means that you have successfully configured it as a bootable image. Now save the image file in your desired location and you are done.
