Any chance TPU will host/seed an iso?
I doubt MS would like that so much.
Windows 8 Pro with Start8!!!
So they added a start menu in the final build?
No its a addon called start8
Ah ok. I was gonna laugh.
There is also Classic Shell that is capable of doing the same thing and more:
My first topic with over 100 posts, holy shit this rocks!!!
My only regret about upgrading was I did not do a fresh install, but that is ok, 16GB in a windows.old folder is nothing to cry about. I have plenty of storage room. I am really liking Windows 8 Pro and I upgraded my Dad last night too and he likes it. xD
I just pinned command line, control panel, all that stuff I siphoned for in the Start menu to either my task bar or start home page, so I don't need a start button personally.
If you downloaded the X64 edition, it should have allowed you to create an ISO. This is the best way since you can boot from it either on DVD or USB then do a CUSTOM installation that lets you install fresh.
You cheered me up with your posts brandon. I was going to pass but when I saw you burn iso to disc for a clean install, i was excited. I think i'll jump now.
Do they have any aero looking themes, or are all desktops that ugly?
ah well, hopefully it'll go through
So I got quite a quick response from support.... Here goes....
long story short.... Either:
A: He knew exactly what was going on since i used my cousins laptop she bought about a month ago to register for the Win 8 Pro, gave no fucks and didnt want to help at all
B: He totally had no idea how a 32bit or 64Bit OS works
C: English wasnt his first language and there was a break down in translation because even though he typed in 'good' english with no spelling mistakes, most of it just didnt make any real sense to me.
the dude does have a funky name though....
I said it earlier. You can get the .iso and do a verrrry clean install. Everything went smoothly so I'm on the latest Windows 8 Pro bought with 30 Euro and upgraded from a totally free Windows 8 RP. You really can't beat the offer.
My E8400 machine thinks it's an i7 now. It flies.
The dude is a she. It's a Romanian name.
Yeah see...all that bitching and twisted panties for nothing.
Does it make that much of a difference?
Gosh $15 for an upgrade is practically nothing. That is enough to make my decision to stay with 7 seem wobbly. I still just don't see any real big benefits.
Can someone PM me a combo that works including where it was purchased/brand/model? Or just PM me a code? lol
Being a desktop user I didn't think so either until I started reading Technet articles and what not about new features and improvements in 8. Technet ≠ marketing, for the most part.
Well, I had Vista before (and an old bloated install) so for me it's like night and day. Anyway it feels fast, don't know how it is coming from 7.
Yes it does. My boot times with Win7 plus SSD was around 30 seconds for a full restart, now it is only about 7-9 seconds.
For my gaming desktop I dont think win 8 would do anything. Win 8 might give my laptop some more battery life. I wonder how much. If it was anything even 10% it would be worth it.
I had no issues registering my Asus Viper Elite PC from Ebuyer
I might just have to install this now, was going to leave it a while but this may swing it.
Yeah, $14.99 for an entire OS is not a shabby deal imo.
Yes. You have to "show hidden folders" in the view options for Windows Explorer. Once that is set it will shot your C:/ESD. That is where the download and starting .exe is located.
just going to throw this up as well, all new Windows 8 Pro peeps get the $9.99 media pack free, this is only for a limited time.
its down right now but should be back up Microsoft says within 10 hours or so
