Use ISO image on DVD

cccgsmith
I have an ISO image of Windows 8 on a DVD. Naturally I cannot install as it exists. But I am having trouble finding out how to make use of this file to re-install Win 8 on my PC.

      The first question, is where did you get the ISO and what is it supposed to contain?

      Is this the manufactures restore image for this specific computer?

      Is this an ISO image of some Windows 8 release? Possibly even the pre-release that was a trial only?

      If this is the restore image from the manufacture, there should be specific instructions for how to boot up and restore the image.

      NOTE: Any restore image returns your computer to exactly the state it was in when the image was made. All files and software installs that are not part of the specific image will be LOST!
      The manufactures image returns your computer to the same state it was at the first time you booted it up after purchase.
