Where is the "install by creating media" option?
Nov 21, 2012, 3:32 AM
I want to do a clean install of Windows 8, but I'm not getting a "install by creating media" option. The only options it gives me are "Install now" or "Install Later from desktop".

From your link:
10. On the Install Windows 8 screen, choose
Install by creating media
and then click Next.
You should re-read my original post. That option doesn't exist on my screen.

There are different installers with the same name. This one will let you download and save the image, make a USB installer or burn a DVD. At least it worked for me when I re downloaded the image after I had already setup Windows 8.
