    Hi Guys i have one quesiton.

    I am now running 2 OS in one HDD on C: Windows 7 on D :Windows 8 RP. My DVD drive is not working and i dont have USB stick.

    My plan is : first i will format drive D: (Windows 8) on Windows 7 from disk managment.

    And then i will extract Windows 8 RTM iso in a folder in Windows 7 and run the setup.exe from sources folder and start install Windows 8 RTM to Drive D

    Is that correct guys ??

    You can apply your image directly to your D: drive using DISM.

    Dism /apply-image /imagefile:E:\Sources\install.wim /index:1 /ApplyDir:D:\
