    Actually I deleted the install file completely and re downloaded it and it still didnt give me the option to change what I want to do.

    I don't have a new insert disk. I redownload the windows 8 installer as you told me to do above, and it automatically starts trying to redownload windows 8, doesn't give me the option to choose to create new install media or anything.

    With respect - see post 15
    YOU cannot create the install media UNTIL you have downloaded Windows
    as the files need to be on your computer before you can CREATE the disc

    Yes and with respect as I stated, I did that once and put my product key in, the first time, I tried to simply redownload windows and got error access denied. So I deleted that file and redownloaded it and everytime I run the install file now it simply tries to redownload windows on my computer and then says access denied again. I do NOT get the screen referenced in post 15.

    Ok But I did not appreciate of course that you still had the access denied error
    as on your last I read

    and I was trying to explain that you do not see the choice of to install now or install by creating media until it has downloaded the files for the installation to your computer


    Please see the link in my post 13
    I have NOT done this as I created the media in the first place, so I could set up my triple boot with 8, 7 and XP

    If following the advice in that link does not work, then I am sorry but I can only suggest that you use the 90 day free support option that comes with the windows 8 upgrade - from Microsoft
