    Hoops hoops hoops and more hoops. Fing MS. Now that I have the wzr rtm iso and key for install. Then use my windows 8 key for activation. I am having trouble getting this iso on my 4bg usb stick. It says 3.73 available. I believe the iso is a bit more. Any way of getting it to fit? I tried the MS usb tool. But, got that error. I know for UEFI it needs to be formatted to fat32. My HP has uefi bios. But, its not able to use secure boot or have that feature. So, I thought the MS tool would be the candy.

    I have it on a 4GB stick and there's 678 free space left out of the 3.77gb and the windows usb tool will format your usb to NTFS which is used for UEFI.

    After the format back to NTFS. It says 3.64gb available out of 3.73gb looks like my usb stick sucks? Either will have to buy a new one or some blank discs. FAT32 will give me 3.72gb

    I found Rufus that might get me by with a easier solution using FAT32? I just don't know what option to pick.

    1. MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI computers.

    2. MBR partition scheme for UEFI computer.

    3. GPT partition scheme for UEFI computer.

    The other option I don't know what to select as well.

    Create a bootable disk using MS-DOS, FreeDOS or ISO Image.

    I assume the iso image would be the correct selection?

    Also by going this route. I have a HP desktop. It will not give me a issue about secure boot will it? Since my system does not use it or supports it.
