    HI friend,

    Here are the four simple steps by which you can install windows 8 on your pc:-

    Step1:- Ingredients.

    Before you can get the first taste of windows 8, you'll need to gather the following ingredients:

    1. PC, Internet connection, 1blank DVD, 1DVD burner.

    Step2:- Backup your files.

    Before you install windows 8, back up all your files using dropbox or your backup method of choice.

    Step3:- Using the windows 8 upgrade assistant.

    Using windows 8 upgrade assistant, you'll be prompted to check for compatibility.

    1. After you click on the download pro link, you'll have the option to download a small "stub" installer.

    2. This little 5mb file will run a compatibility check on your computer to tell you which programs will and wont work with windows 8.

    After the check is complete, you'll be prompted to review and decide what to keep.

    since this is a new installation not an upgrade to windows 8 start your windows 8 experience fresh.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    all the best

    Thanking you...

    Hi,

    The requirments of Windows 8 are very simple and logical. They are as follows :


    Processor >>> 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAER A M>>> 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)Hard disk >>> 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)Graphics card >>>Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

    These are bare minimal necessary for Windows8 and of course the Original Windows 8 Installer software.

    Thanks.
