What does make you think it is not, did I miss to put an info anywhere?

No, all is right! A question appeared after I tried add to USB Win8.1 AIO setup from image I made myself. After AIO image creating I was tested it in VMWare. There all installations works. It looks like it's only my fault. Never mind!

Put an empty file called debugme next to the Win8 ISO file and restart the setup, get to the point when the error is displayed and cancel/close setup windows one by one until it restarts. All log files from PE phase will be copied next to it. Put them all in a zip file and post it here. Did you happen to use an USB 3.0 port? Use 2.0 instead. Did you try Win8 on another computer? Is it vanilla source?
i tried, unfortunately setup doesn't write anything in that file. He is remaining empty after cancelling setup. I never used USB 3.0 , just 2.0. Tried another computer, and virtual machine , the result is the same. The source is from a original OEM multilanguage DVD that we're using in our organisation. Those DVD's we are receiving from MS, for further delivering to end-user

It should not write to the debugme file itself, but copy all log files next to it.
Did you place it next to the Win8 ISO file?
It must be without an extension.
Can you manually copy x:\windowds\winpresetup.log when you get the error?
Shift+F10 will bring up command prompt, then copy it to the USB disk.
It would really help if you copy the other log files as well to see what is happening:
Just in case- you are using 1.0 version of the program, right?

i am using the version that i asked here, http://www.msfn.org/...-gui/?p=1049812, page 81. X:\windows\winpresetup.log and inf\setupapi.app.log - no such files. The others are here files.zip 9.98KB 2 downloads
The thing is that this is not like a error, maybe it shouldn't write in logs, it is more like a prompt to install the required drivers

I'm having a problem with installing a nlited version of XP Pro. I run WinSetupFromUSB and it completes successfully and it boots into the XP textmode installation. The problem is that the installation lists the partitions of the USB drive that the installer is on and not the internal HDD. Is there anything I could do to get it to show the internal HDD?

Program updated to 1.1, list of changes:
- (U)EFI support for Windows Vista x64 SP1 and later 64 bits Windows. USB disk must be formatted in FAT32 as per EFI specifications to boot under EFI. To prepare USB disk running the program under Windows XP or 2003, which do not include bcdedit.exe, an active internet connection must be present in order to download it
- Firadisk driver is now added to each XP 32 bits source, bit disabled by default. A new option in DPMS and custom F6 floppy menus activates it. This should help loading SATA/AHCI/RAID drivers from virtual floppy on problematic machines
- NT6 sources boot menus are now handled by BOOTMGR
- fixed recognition of Windows 8.1 sources which contain INSTALL.ESD instead of INSTALL.WIM
- added check in boot menu for Linux sources to warn if PLoP is loaded. Linux sources would not work with PLoP loaded as it supports only read mode
- removed the ZIP archive as it seems some users tend to launch the program directly from the Windows zip folder view, rather than extracting all files and folders. A self extracting SFX archive is added instead
- updated wimlib to 1.5.3
- various small bug fixes
