Is there an easy way to do this?
I'm putting a fan controller in the optical drive bay.

Thanks.

    Yes it works for 8 as well.

    I don't understand how this works.
    If I buy this:

    How do I use it to install?
  4. That is a DVD.

    Do you have another machine with a DVD drive?
    If yes, create an ISO from that DVD from Amazon.
    Then follow the directions from the MS USB tool.
  5. Oh, ok.
    Thanks man! :)

    You can skip making an iso from the DVD with this;

    It is free for non-commercial use.

    You would still need another computer with DVD drive though..

    Well, I'm currently on a computer with an optical drive...
    So I guess I'll use this.
    Thanks!
