Re: [WIN8] can't make an ISO I was at first going to suggest using another image burn program as well, but I don't think that will solve the problem.
Looking again at the OP's post a bit more deeply, I see that the OP is running Windows Vista. (bold added by me)
said by aurgathor:It appears that the OP is trying to upgrade Vista Business 64 bit to Windows 8, using the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. During that process, one of the options appears to allow the end user the option to burn a copy of Windows 8 from an iso file (in this case called Windows.iso) to DVD before the upgrade takes place.
PC: Dell Optiplex 745, 8 Gig RAM, 120 GB SSD, 500 GB HD, freshly installed Vista Business 64 bit.
The error message tells me that during that process, the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant was not able to burn that ISO.
I feel the OP's question is why did the error happen during the running of the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. Some things that come to mind
• The actual DVD burner installed is not supported by the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant
• The file "Windows.iso" had a problem when it was being downloaded to the OP's system, which caused it not be able to be written to the DVD (corrupt file).
Unfortunately, I have never used the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant, so I am just guessing at this point based on what they have said. But, I hope that with my explanation it may help the OP get the answer they are looking for (that is, if my assumptions written above are correct).
