Install Windows via command line

In this video I show you how to install Windows 8/8.1 via the command line using diskpart, DISM, bootrec and bcdboot.

We first need to partition the disk and get it ready for the Windows install, then we need to extract the install.wim file to the hard drive, and then create our BCD store. We are doing this all manual just because we can lol, but also because I had to and wanted to show others how.
