Greetings,

I'm using ASUS K53SD notebook running on Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise version.
Today, I decided to install Win 8.1 from the scratch.  

I have Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise as a ISO file. I tried different methods but ended up with no luck. Here is what I did step by step:

1) mounted the image to a virtual drive using Poweriso
2) I  made the Kingston HyperX 3.0 pmap bootable and copied all setup files on to USB flash drive.
3) Shutdown the notebook , plugged in the USB drive and hit the power button while
pressing `Esc` key and boot devices listed.  I selected USB drive but computer bypass flash drive and boot from SATA Team XS2 SSD
4) As a last resort, I burned ISO file on to a DVD and change the boot order but again
I failed.

The current Boot Configuration is as follows:
UEFI BOOT ---- Disabled
PXE ROM ---- Disabled

Boot Device Order:
SATA Team  XS2 SSD
SATA HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT51N

I spent 6 hours to fix this issue but nothing changed. I would be grateful if you kindly share your suggestions on this issue. Thank you in advance.

Regards

when you created your usb stick this is the procedure you should have followed
format usb stick as fat32
copy the contents of the iso to the usb stick.

you don't need power iso to mount an iso, windows 8.x allows this natively

You do need to turn off UEFI Safeboot

Hello Network Zero,

I turned on UEFI as you suggested and tried to boot from  flash drive but I failed.
Afterwards, I tried to boot from DVD. This time, several options listed. I selected
`Resetting` since I already  made a copy of my all files. `Resetting` process took 45-50
minutes.  

Now, everything seems just fine. However I have a quick question;
The process was different from clean install. I could  delete, create
partitions  after `resetting` process is done.  Would it be possible to perform
clean install using flash drive or DVD if necessary in future  ? Thank you.

Kind Regards

The boot USB stick should be created with Microsoft Tool. After that you need to disable a Secure Boot.
When done call Boot Menu by pressing F10 or any other corresponding key and select there your USB stick. Then you will get a menu where you can delete and create new partitions. Delete them all and let Windows partition drive itself.
