    Win_8 Build 7959 x64


    Yes that is the win8 Build 7959 x64 (64 bit) Windows 2008 R2 Server build

    This will probably run on your 64 bit laptop if you partition you HD & dual boot with you current laptop. But it will not dual boot on your desktop that is 32bit, with it's own partition, since it is 64 bit

    Okay I have it on aa 4GB flash drive, now I want to create a partition to test it on; should it be unallocated space or a simple volume? i tried both before and it says I cannot install to that volume because it's a dynamic volume or something like that...

    Davy. Have a look at this tutorial from SevenForums. Make sure that you read and understand what you are doing. You can very easy trash your win7 install if you do something by mistake. Be sure you select the correct partition to work on.

    I've created partitions before and installed Win 7 builds with no problem. could it be cause it's a server build, instead of a regular ol' build??

    Tried on VMWare and VirtualBox...no go, tried booting from a USB drive and booting from a disc...still no joy. I give up and guess i'll wait and try the Release Candidate when it arrives...

    You may have a dynamic disk.

    Have you created more than 4 partitions?

    Have a look in disk mananement and see if it says dynamic.

    If it does - you may want to change it back to basic.

    Yes It has four partitions, though I didn't create them; they came already made although I don't know if I could erase them. Of course there's the C: and Recovery partitions but there's two more one says SYSTEM 199MB and another says HP Tools 103MB. My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ-56 115DX. Can I delete these partitions?

    The 199mb & the 103mb tools would not give you enough to install win8. The 199mb is used as a boot section for your win7 OS. The other is for HP Tools. You would probably be better off getting a second destop HD for a test install of win8
