download and install ISORecorder

Insert the DVD into the DVD Drive, Right Click the Drive letter that represents your DVD, and click Create Image from DVD, follow the wizard, select the location on your PC to save the ISO, and then upload to datastore.

Will this work if I have copied the setup files in a folder?

No, you need to have a DVD with valid Boot Sector.

Which can be checked using MagicISO.

if you just have the setup files on a DVD, this is not a bootable ISO, and you will have to create the boot sectors on the DVD.

MagicIso will also make an iso from a disk.

Where did you get/download your original Windows 2008 DVD?

if you only have the files from the DVD, you will not be able to create a bootable ISO, because you also need the boot sector from the DVD.
