    Re: What are the problems while installing Windows 8?

    Hi,
    If you are using a windows 7 Operating System in your computer then there wont be any problem installing the new Windows 8 Operating System in the same system.But there might be some issues with the drivers of the windows 8 which wont be easy to find. The hardware requirements for windows 8 are similar to windows 7 so there would not be any issue while installing widows 8.

    No friends, Installation of windows 8 is much easy with respect to
    its previous version. And it is something like windows 7. Also most
    of the steps is just like windows 7.

    If you are worry about hardware configuration then there is same but
    if you provide a graphics card then it will perform more batter.

    Minimum hardware requirement for Windows 8 is:-

    1. It required at least 1GHz Processor
    2. At least 1GB for 32 bit and 2GB for 64 bit
    3. Required minimum storage of 16 Gb for 32bit and 32Gb for 64 bit

    Re: What are the problems while installing Windows 8?

    generally it doesn't create any problem if you have installed windows 7.
    but there may be some problems with the drivers, if you find anything wrong it'll be hard to rectify as it is a new version and problems can't be solved easily as there are not much information about the solution on internet. some problems happens such as you'll sometime be unable to see the screen while installing windows 8.

    Re: What are the problems while installing Windows 8?

    Hello Friend,

    If you are very known to the way of installation then you will not get any problem while installing Windows in your PC. Here, I'm giving you the way how to install Windows 8, side by side of your previous one. Follow these, you'll be able to get the efficient processing of Windows 8.

    Microsoft has released the Windows 8 Consumer Preview so that everyone can get a sneak peek at the newest Windows operating system. Installing the Windows 8 OS to run side-by-side with your current OS can seem tricky, so were here to help. Its easy to install Windows 8 if you follow these 7 simple steps.



    Step 1.

    Before you can get a first taste of Windows 8, youll need to prepare the following ingredients:
    1 PC, Internet connection, Windows 7, 1 blank DVD and 1 DVD burner.

    Step 2.

    To run Windows 8 side-by-side with your current operating system, you need to install Windows 8 on a separate hard drive. If you don't have a spare drive, you can divide your existing hard drive into sections and install Windows 8 on a new section. These sections of the hard drive are called partitions.

    ***To create a partition, go to the Start Menu, right click on Computer, and select Manage to open the Computer Management window.

    ***Select which hard drive to split up into partitions. Pay close attention to where you click. Click on Disk Management under the Storage category in the sidebar menu on the left. Next, right click on the hard drive youd like to partition and select Shrink Volume. On the picture above you can see we chose to partition drive C:

    03-partition-03.jpg


    ***Choose the amount of space to shrink for your new partition and click Shrink. We recommend having 40,000MB of space in the new partition.

    ***Now youll see the new partition you created, labeled as Unallocated. You will soon install Windows 8 onto this Unallocated drive. Your existing OS will remain unharmed on the first partition.

    Step 3.

    Now it's time to download the Windows 8 image file (.iso) from the Microsoft website . Click the download link next to your language and PC architecture. If you are unsure of your PCs architecture, choose x86. Download the image file.

    To install, youll need to burn the image file you just downloaded onto a DVD. Insert a recordable DVD into your disc drive.

    Go to the folder where you saved the download. Right click on the .iso file you downloaded, and then click Burn disc image.

    Check the Verify disc after burning check box and click Burn. It may take a few minutes until the burn is completed.

    Wish you all the very best.

    Re: What are the problems while installing Windows 8?

    Hi,

    There should be no problem in installing Windows 8 , wheather it is an upgrade or a clean installation.

    If your computer meet the requirment as you must be aware of then there should be no hassle.

    Generally speaking, if the Image file of Windows 8 are written correctly, if the media in which the files are written, if the HDD of your computer is in good health, if the RAM is okay and if the BIOS settings is not against a fresh installation then there shouls be no problem.

    Thanks.
