Create Windows 8 universal UEFI enabled DVD/ISO

This article will explain how to Create a Windows 8 universal UEFI enabled DVD/ISO

Copy all files from the Windows 8 DVD to a local folder eg. C:\Win8Media

Now let’s make it universal (you can select which version your want Windows 8/Windows 8 Pro from the same DVD)

Create a file called ei.cfg save it in C:\Win8Media\sources\ei.cfg


Now let’s make the files back to a ISO And enable UEFI Boot:

oscdimg.exe -m -o -u2 -udfver102 -bootdata:2#p0,e,bC:\Win8Media\boot\,e,bC:\Win8Media\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin C:\Win8Media C:\path\to\new\win8pro-uefi.iso
