I downloaded windows 8 and tried to install but it's requesting to be burned. How do I install it from my flash drive?

you can either extract the files to your desktop then run setup directly from your desktop OR better still create a bootable usb using "rufus" @ https://rufus.ie then install using the usb ; refer to https://www.hovatek.com/blog/how-to-inst...em-cd-dvd/

Hi you have to download Rufus and create a bootable USB drive, please disable UEFI in your BIOS and enable legacy support.

When the PC boots up press F10 or your quick boot selection key then select USB bootable drive.

If you dont disable UEFI in your BIOS the RUFUS created USB bootable drive wont work.

recreate the USB bootable drive, in the option to choose partition scheme change it to GPT.
