The link is wrong.
there u go, fixed my bad
Finally got it to work. The first few times, checkout initialization failed.... a hour or 2 later it works
I might just get this for my laptop. 2 different websites show about a 7-12% more batter life.
And if I just find I absolutelly hate windows 8, I can go back to windows 7. I doubt I would though.
cool. I will get one for my new laptop and upgrade it. New SSD is waiting, so this will be the right time to do all from scratch.
Thanks again Phusius, i'm actually excited about this Windows 8 now
Yeah, just don't forget to also download the free media player pack I linked a few posts back, it's probably only going to be free for a week or two at most. $9.99 after that.
In fact it's free until RP expires and the upgrade deal expires which is 31st of Jan 2013.
quote: Offer valid from October 26, 2012, until January 31, 2013, and is limited to one product key per email address.
hey folks, if you need to delete your windows.old folder like I needed to since i did the Do Nothing option during install here you go
Pissed off, the metro apps aren't working, I click one it opens the tile full screen then snaps back to the home screen, now I remember why I deleted the RTM build
I have not had this issue at all... :/
this is metro ie full screen, no address bar, nothing. The other metro apps open like this too, ie: as a big tile, they never get to the GUI and just snap me back to the home screen. Why the fuck did I upgrade my Win 7 install
Well upgrading was a mistake no matter what, dude.
oh i dont launch my IE or Chrome from there, i click on desktop and launch from there.
also i recommend the fresh paint app, its really cool u get to mix your colors on a palette like real artists and pick ur brushes and change the width etc, and choose what u want to paint on paper, canvas with oil, etc.
very cool app. its free.
Hey guys just wondering I was going to be build my sister a new comp with W7 if I do this great deal and do a full install can I then use my old W7 key for her new comp?
You may well be right though it's no where near as flakey as it was in XP era and usually works really well aside maybe an app or 2 that might need a reinstall.
Fuck it, going to burn an .ISO and do a clean install, just need to move my steam folder off my SSD cause I'll be damned if I'm downloading all my games again
Great Friday night, fucking hardcore me
Just got Creating a purchasing order failed. Try again later......
Yeah, manofthem had this problem too but after a few hours it finally worked randomly. Must be something on their end, their servers are probably overloaded.
Feel bad for you. Don't want to add salt, always backup backup backup what ever you can.
good luck with your install.
Yes, it happened like 6 times in a row. Took a break with some bf3 and came back to it. Magically it worked first time, wihoo, not sure why.
Like he said, do we get a seperate key for 8 Pro, or do you use our old OS key?
you get a separate key. its emailed to you with your receipt as well as during checkout.
I did the upgrade. Seems to work fine other than all my icons are a mess on the desktop because Fences is no longer running.
Edit : Just started up Fences and it put everything back where it belonged.
Yep just got it to work D/L'ing(3%) now.
This is what you get.
Kriej, don't judge it right away. It took me about an hour or so to learn all the little tricks. Like when I am browsing full screen through Chrome on the Start page, there is no red x to end it, you just go to left hand corner, wait a second, and left hand column appears, this allows you to snap right, left, or close that item. I had like 8 things up and didn't realize it until i figured this out.
