    I have got this image pt_windows_8.1_pro_vl_with_update_x86_dvd_6050934.iso and made it a bootable usb in a notebook which was installed with a differente image of win 8. One of some pre activated unknown torrent image. I went to boot the first image in this same notebook but wasn't able to do it. This was with localized version. Then tried with english version, same result, the notebook don't recognize usb as boot partition.
    The usb boot only initiate with the same image of installation.
    How am I able to boot with a different image ?

    You probably need to do 1 of 2 things. Use an x64 ISO, since the one you have shown is x86 and probably is not booting because of secure mode. OR disable secure boot in bios and continue using the x86. I am assuming it is an x64 system without any other details.

    IMO, get the X64 edition of the iso and try again.
