I downloaded a Windows 8 64-bit Developers Preview. Apparently, I realized that the size is greater than 4.7GB. I tried to make a bootable installer on an 8GB Pendrive but it resulted in installation error. Can you really install Windows 8 64-bit Developers Preview on a Pendrive? How? If not how can I produce a bootable DVD of Windows 8 64-bit Developers Preview? Should I use an 8GB Dual Layer or higher grade DVD?
How to install Windows 8 64-bit Developers Preview on Pendrive
You may solve this problem by installing the Windows 8 developer preview using a USB stick. First, check whether your computer supports USB booting. If it supports, can you try installing it with a USB stick?
You need to follow the steps below to create a bootable USB stick . Searching for Disk Management in the start menu. Then format your USB stick. Finally right click on the USB drive and select "Mark partition as Active".
Then just mount the .ISO files (you can do that by using PowerISO or any other software) and copy the contents of the .ISO to the flash. Restart your system and plug the USB disk. Press your boot menu key (To most machines its F12) then select USB.
