  • You say your system is equal to what Windows 8 needs....

    I suggest you run Windows Compatibility test then see what it says you need - it will post to your desktop... apparently you are missing something.

    or something is not compatible... with...

  • Hello salahnecibi,

    You may have a corrupted download. This error may be caused by a bad burn of the .ISO. Try re-downloading and re-burning the .ISO file. Also, it may help to burn using a lower speed if the software you are using to burn the .ISO supports that function.
    what are you using to convert the ISO file? On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use
    Windows Disc Image Burner

    Let us know if this helps.

    Please get the Windows7 Upgrade Advisor, install and run the tool, it will let you know about the short comings in your hardware/ software and whether you need any hardware up gradation. The required specs for Windows7 and WDP are just about the same. Am a little apprehensive about your hardware.

    Please get your WDP download only from the MS site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516.aspx

  • Hello salahnecibi,

    Try using the Widows Disc Image Burner to convert the file instead of Virtuel Burner Daemontool and see if you still get the same error. 
    Copy from  Windows Disc Image Burner
