    Hi,

    You have a number of ways to verify wheather your laptop is compatible with Windows 8 or not.

    Simply log in to WWW.microsoft.com and check the minimum requirments for installing the OS, and tally with your laptop, the result is there.

    But on a similar note i will ask you if you have bought the laptop within a year and if you are running Windows 7 now, likely it is compatible for Windows 8.

    1-2 GHz processor/2 GB RAM/20 GB HDD/DirectX latest is the minimum requirment.

    Thanks.

    Hi.
    I suggest you to download and run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. It scans your current PC to see if it is ready for Windows 8 and then provides a compatibility report and optional steps for you to buy, download, and install Windows 8.
    Visit the below link to download:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/w...e-to-windows-8

    Also, go to the http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...patCenter/Home on the Microsoft website to see what works with Windows 8 and find direct links to drivers, updates, and downloads.

    Thank you.

    Hi,
    This is very simple.
    Just see if your laptop has the following configuration or not.

    Windows-8 system requirements 64-bit (x64)
    CPU with 1 GHz
    20 GByte Hard disk space
    2 GByte RAM
    DirectX-9 graphics Card


    Windows-8 system requirements 32-bit (x86/x32)
    CPU with 1 GHz
    16 GByte Hard disk space
    1 GByte RAM
    DirectX-9 graphics Card

    If it does not have the above configuration,then it will not support Windows 8.
    Hence first upgrade your system and then install Windows 8

    Bye

    Before upgrading to Windows 8

    Before upgrading to Windows 8, be sure to observe the following guidelines:
    • Ensure that you have updated your system BIOS and device drivers. Otherwise, Windows 8 might not function correctly. Go to the Lenovo Support Web site at http://www.lenovo.com/support to download and install the latest BIOS and device drivers for your system.
    • If your computer operating system is Windows 7, upgrade it to Windows 7 Service Pack 1(SP1).
    • Upgrade as many applications as possible. This might help you prevent problems during the upgrade process. For application software limitations, refer to the document Application Software Limitations When Upgrading to Windows 8 on ThinkPad and Lenovo B, E, K, M, and V Series Notebook Computers.
    • Important: Uninstall the following applications or device drivers before upgrading. Otherwise you will encounter problems either during or after the upgrade process.- DisplayLink Core Software- Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver- Lenovo Solution Center- RapidBoot- ThinkPad(R) Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software
    • Ensure that you have backed up your files and data on your computer to an external storage device, such as an external hard disk drive, DVD or CD, USB flash memory, or network storage device.
    • Ensure that your computer is connected to the Internet through a wired Ethernet connection during the whole upgrade process. Windows 8 might automatically download device drivers and updates during the upgrade process.
