Create .iso for Windows 8 from “Windows 8 setup” program

installation-mediaiso-imagewindows 8

I downloaded Windows 8 through my school, and the only option that we are given is to use the "Windows 8 Setup" program where it downloads and does the install for you. I'm wondering, after the download, is it possible to get an image that can then be used to create a bootable DVD/USB? I'd like to have a backup installation disk, since they only give you 30 days of access to your download. Does anyone know how do to this?

Can't you just back-up the setup program itself instead?

If it runs straight from the web (highly doubt so), you could use Process Monitor to see where it saves it and then copy the temporary folder and put that on an external medium.
