    Installing Windows 8 on two computers Wow

    Customer review by Wolverine77

    5.0 stars by Wolverine77

    I upgraded two computers with windows 8 upgrade with many hours to get it done. I upgraded from XP Professional to the new upgrade. My first computer I ended up formatting the hard drive to install a fresh copy of XP. Why? My internet explorer was not working on it and I had a few more errors for some time. YOU MUST have internet exploring working on present system to install this program on your computer. After getting that complete I ran into problems. The install kept crashing, starting to install and then stopping. After a lot of time and frustration and thinking, I figured it out. YOU MUST run defragmenter from Control Panel to defragment your hard drive first. That was the issue and then I was able to install it on this computer. My other computer was running fine and I tried to install it. Crashed once and I defragged my C drive hard drive from Control Panel and THAT was the ticket. After defragmentation was done, the program installed wonderfully. My review of Windows 8 ??? It is so different, its going to take time to learn, but the interface is pretty cool and exciting. Sort of like going to the bank teller machine for a withdrawl, hit the tab and that is how you get around. So far I like it and am running a GAME that requires a better OS system like windows 8, Black Ops II. So for the price and the coolness of this new program I give it a thumbs up. JUST RUN DEFRAGMENTER first before either type of install.

    I love this software. Easy to install and works like an iPad. You don't need touchscreen, it works well with a mouse.

    It is much faster than Win7 and more flexible. It does have a little bit of a learning curve, give it about a week and you should feel right at home with it. I definitely recommend it to anyone that uses Windows products!

    It does not say. I'm assuming it's the upgrade but then why would Walmart not discount it below Microsofts stated price?

    • Microsoft is selling it at this price until Jan 31, 2013 ( I think, that's the date ) then the price is going up.

    • This is a upgrade. The full version is 139.99 as of 11/08/2012. Upgrade means just that. You need a previous windows installed to get it to work. A full version (139.99) one does not need anything on the hard drive to install.

    • The rule is 60/40 on profit. Packaging, and hard line format of the DVD all plays here when it comes to price. It's cheaper online without all these above for that reason. Same software, no glitz. As to Upgrade? No. The engineering involved here cannot be upgraded. It takes all of your files in windows folders (Docs/Photos/Desktop, etc.) and places it into Windows.old folder. Be prepared to lose what is in Program Files and/or the rest of your hard drive. I rec'd backing up everything you deem important either on flash drives or cloud based hard drives. Software needs to be reinstalled. Only back up config and data files, as the new OS may not like the old software you put back in.Most companies have upgrades their software to Win 8 compatibility.

    • Yeah, it is the upgrade version. You must have Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 to use this copy. I'am guessing that the reason this copy is more expensive then microsoft is because the 39 dollar version from microsoft is a download version not a physical product. On the microsoft site it says you can get a physical copy shipped to you for 69 dollars.
