the title says it all....I don't have an optic drive, so only USB install goes, I have no OS and the Hard Drive is formatted and cleaned....

Had Windows 8.1 before on the same laptop, but had to do a clean install to fix some problems.
.iso has been downloaded from the Microsoft site, and burned to USB with their official program, so I don't have an idea what to do....

Help :(

well the laptop I'm trying to install it to doesn't have an OS, will it still work?
btw, switching to the other USB port kinda did something...before the error popped up at 18% 3 times in a row, now it got to 27%....maybe it has something to do with the USB flash overheating?

yeah, I got a desktop...tried it tho, it seems that my cd key doesn't work for some unknown reason :/

I'll try to cool the USB, I'm not expecting much of it, but since I'm getting desperate, a long shot is still a shot

yes I know....tried both just to be sure....I have a Windows 8 DVD that works 100%, so now I am extracting from it and creating .iso file to put on my USB Flash with Rufus...if that don't do it, I give up...
