    This is also a complex way to make boot-able,I have a trick that does’t require any software..

    1) Format your pen drive with it’s default allocation.
    2) Copy the contain of the ISO image or the files of windows 8.
    3) Simply paste that contain in your pen drive.

    After completion, just eject your pen drive and again install your pen drive in to your computer you can see your pen drive’s logo has changed….

    In this manner you can make boot able Pen drive……
