Windows 8 developer Full install

Post by Admin on Wed Dec 28, 2011 9:08 am

Windows 8 Developer Preview downloads

The
Windows 8 Developer Preview is a pre-beta version of Windows 8 for
developers. These downloads include prerelease software that may change
without notice. The software is provided as is, and you bear the risk of
using it. It may not be stable, operate correctly or work the way the
final version of the software will. It should not be used in a
production environment. The features and functionality in the prerelease
software may not appear in the final version. Some product features and
functionality may require advanced or additional hardware, or
installation of other software.
Note: You can't
uninstall the Windows 8 Developer Preview. To go back to your previous
operating system, you must reinstall it from restore or installation
media.

System Requirements

The Windows 8 Developer Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
  • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch
  • To run Metro style Apps, you need a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 or greater

Notes about installing the Windows 8 Developer Preview

A
clean install is supported on all builds, but you can upgrade if you
are installing a download without the developer tools. You will receive
the full set of migration options when setup is launched in Windows. To
dual-boot, you must first boot from media and choose an alternative
partition.

How to install the Windows 8 Developer Preview from an ISO image

The
Windows 8 Developer Preview is delivered as an .iso image that must be
converted into installation media stored on a DVD or a USB flash drive.
On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use Windows Disc Image Burner.
On Windows XP and Windows Vista, a third-party program is required to
convert an .iso file into installable media—and DVD burning software
often includes this capability.
Note: The .iso
file that contains the developer tools requires a large capacity DVD
called a DVD-9, as well as a DVD burner that can handle dual-layer (DL)
DVDs. Most modern burners should be able to handle this format.

Tried out the installer, installed perfectly smooth in no time without any issues.
Have not tested functionality and stability fully as of yet, but probably doing some extreme stress tests tonight.

The new metro layout look is somewhat getting used to, but looking fine and refreshing. Think this was the change Windows needed for a while now.

More updates will follow as soon as I did some stability tests Wink

Windows 8 developer Full install

Post by Admin on Wed Jan 04, 2012 9:18 am

Ok

tested first two weeks on dual core acer laptop with 2 gb of ram. runs very smoothly. only issue
is when starting some games you must set compatibility to windows 7 because some games doesn't recognize windows 8

In mean while installed several laptops dual cores with the win8, no issues yet

Also installed newly made pc i7 sec gen 8gb ddr, 120 gb ssd, runs fast start up in about 6 sec after pushing the button ( cold start)

plus points until now:

- faster start up in cold status
- mostly all hardware recognized directly
( beware for sound-cards of medion)
- beware of some Intel graphics. there is an update of the Intel INF files on the Intel site ( this will solve issue)
- Game play, lesser lag, quick starting and smoothly runs ( also Battlefield3 runs like the sun)
- Network speed is increased and optimized
- Internet Explorer runs much better then IE9
- Video replay no issues: same as win7 but lesser cache issues
- Office 2010 start-up in 2 sec, even access 2010
- network viewing in AD or other network parts are smoother
- Also on some systems, don't know if this is win8 or not, usb connections and DVD readings are quicker
- Adobe CS suites runs much quicker ( overall all programs will start faster on a win8 system)
- Windows explorer ribbons are for easy use and brings you quick to the point to be

Minus points :

- sometimes the big clock will show up on the desktop. only away after log off and on again.
- Metro style squares can be irritating for some ( try little program disabling metro style)
- watermark after disabling metro style keeps showing, no patch yet
- Ribbons in windows explorer disappears after disabling metro on some systems, which is a shame.
- When installing some applications the user access installation ( uac) security parts show up which can block some
installations or slow down the installations in some cases
- Control panel runs quick but is to large by text and options are not user friendly and clear to my opinion

Further tests will show more pluses and minus

keep reading this part of the forum as we will continue revealing and testing windows 8

the team
