Either burn the iso image to a disc first if you are using windows 7 or older. Or if you are using the windows 8 developer preview, just put the iso image onto the desktop and then right click, and select 'mount'.
To make a bootable flashdrive you need at least 4gb or more.
Then put the disc you just burnt from the windows 8 beta iso into your dvd drive or just mount the iso image if your using the developer preview.
Then follow these steps:
open cmd.exe as an administrator.
then type 'list disk'
find the disc number that is your pendrive by spotting the total size of the pendrive (i.e. 4000mb).
Then type 'select disk' followed by the pendrive disk number you just saw listed. (i.e. Select disk 1)
then type 'clean'
then type 'create partition primary'
then type 'select partition 1'
then type 'active'
then type 'format fs=ntfs'
once that has reached 100%,
Then open cmd.exe again, and type the directory of the windows 8 disc or mounted iso image, followed by 'boot\bootsect.exe' then whatever drive letter your pendrive is, example: 'D:\boot\bootsect.exe E: /nt60
Then after that, type 'xcopy' followed by the directory the windows 8 disc is, then put *.* after it, then put your pendrive drive letter, then put /E /F /H example: 'xcopy D:\*.* E:\ /E /F /H'
Then after that you are done.
