The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. hence this type of issues arrives on your system. In that case, you need to try to change this windows version setup files. use different download link that works properly on it. you can try to get the official copy of this windows 8. this will be work to fix your complex issue. hence try thsi and check its result on your system.

i don't think that this will be also work on your 64 bit system. the reason behind this is very simple. this 128 bit version of windows 8 not work on your system. this is not compatible with your 64 bit system. you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program. Hence download official copy of the windows 8 that is either x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version. then only you can do this task on your 64 bit version. remember this thing during the installation of the windows 8 WDP.
