    I'm trying to install Windows 8 on my 2013 Mac. I purchased Windows from the store and downloaded it. It's currently sitting on my desktop as an exe. file.

    I open up boot camp assistant and begin the process, but when it asks me to select the ISO image, all the files on my computer are greyed-out, including the Windows exe file.

    So how do I get an ISO image?

    You purchased an upgrade? Do you have another version of Windows? Like 7? Install that, then open the .exe there. Did they give you a serial?

    Because it asks for an .ISO file extension, not a .EXE extension.
    You need the ISO otherwise it won't work, that simple.

    any update if this process works? I just purchased Windows 8 and have an .exe file and am in the same predicament as well. I do not have access to a Windows based computer.
