To Install Windows 8 without installing Windows 7 / Vista first, you’ll have to download the Upgrade installer to create an ISO or a bootable USB Device.

You can find the Upgrade installer here:

After this you’ll have to start the installer as an Administrator.
The tool will download Windows 8 Pro and asks for an Installation type.

There you can choose between USB device installation or to create an ISO file.

Search for the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Setup/OOBE

change the value of MediaBootInstall from 1 to 0

Open the Command line as an Administrator (press Windows Key enter CMD and rightclick on it and choose open as administrator)

Enter slmgr /rearm and press enter

Reboot your Windows.
