You have to open the removable disk file and double click the setup.exe file to run it, only problem is you can't do it on the BIOS screen. How do I set it to run automatically.

Assuming you properly created the installation media on the usb to install windows from:

You need to change the boot order in the bios so that the computer boots up from the flash drive (so make it first in the boot order in bios). At that point it should boot up from the flash drive just like it would normally do for a hard drive. The installation screen should pop up then

I think I just got a glitch in the windows 8.1 (going to report it), For Anyone else having the same problem you NEED to have the ISO file on your Desktop Not inside any of your HardDrive spaces,

Try this Software to set up your Flash Drive

Scroll down to 'Download YUMI'
Insert your Pendrive and note it's Drive Letter (Important!)
Run the software once downloaded
Select the correct Drive Letter
Scroll down the list of Distros to 'Windows Vista/7/8
Browse to the location of your ISO (Desktop)
It should look something like this



Boot from your Flash and when you get to 'Where do you want to Install Windows' screen, choose Drive Options (Advanced) to delete all partitions on your Drive and install to Unallocated Space.
