Why Windows 8 Pro Upgrade in ISO image

I buy the upgrade from XP to Windows 8.

But after downloading the update wizard only gives me 2 options: "install now" or "install later the desktop."
It does not appear the option to burn an ISO image.

How can I make this recording on DVD?

Click Install Now

When the "Install Windows 8" message appears, select "Install by creating media" to create a bootable USB flash drive or an .iso (a disk image) file.

Step 3: Wait for the Assistant to download the Windows 8 Pro installation package and create the bootable media or .iso file. The flash drive must be have 3GB or more of free space available.

Step 4: Burn the .iso file, if that's the path you chose, to a blank DVD.

Step 5: Use that USB drive or DVD to boot the PC.

Step 6: When you get to the screen in Setup that asks, "Which type of installation do you want?' choose "Custom."

Step 7: Select a disk partition for the OS in the next screen. At this point, you can create a new partition if there's enough space available, or reformat the drive.

Step 8: Continue with the installation of Windows 8 Pro.

Try this ... but it appears to me that option. It only says "Install".

I'm having the same problem. Have they changed the install program to remove the option for an ISO image?
