Hi a4azza :)

Can I ask you where you get the Windows 8 .iso from? Also, what program did you use to make a USB bootable with it?
Is your hard drive partitionned with MBR or GPT? Do you have Secure Boot Enabled in the BIOS or not?
Are you booting from the USB via Legacy Mode, or UEFI?

You'll need to format your hard drive to a GPT format in order to install Windows 8/8.1. Also, you can download Windows 8 or 8.1 from the Microsoft website and use the installer to create a bootable USB. But you need a valid product key.
