    Installing windows 8 Customer Preview on my Sony Laptop?

    own Sony Laptop which is powered by windows 7. This works fine where the visualization effects seems to be much more and more good than the previous version Vista and Windows XP. I know that the Microsoft have launched Windows 8 customer Preview.One of my friend told that it works well than the windows 7. I want to install that on my Laptop. I bought the Windows 8 Customer Preview genuine copy of my own but I am in little bit confusion in Installing process.Is the Installation is same as other OS or it requires additional steps to follow. Any how I want a clear explanation regarding this.

    Yes,the installation seems to be same as other OS versions.Insert your downloaded copy of WIndows 8 Customer Preview onto the Disc.Click on Prompt which appears at the upper right corner of the screen and click the Run.exe which appears next.This will take you to a Install screen.The thing you have to do in this is that you have to Re-install all the Programs and apps that you had on DP/CP.Here where Change Selection option will be available.This option will take you to previous windows where nothing is checked and you canít change it too.So do a cold boot by clicking the Install option on the INstallation wizard which will install the entire Windows 8 Customer Preview.
