    PC Name

    Never mind, forget about this. I had the keyboard settings wrong, I couldn't make dashes. Sorry!

    Previous post:

    I discovered something really strange: at first boot after installation you are asked to pick a PC-name. But I cannot choose dashes/hyphens (-) or underscores (_) like in Windows 7 and before. Is that not possible anymore? If so, does anyone know why?

    By the way, what is even stranger from that first boot setup screen is that is says in the text box before you start typing something: "Example: lounge-pc", so with a dash in it!! So their own example is incorrect, am I right?

    (I am using the UK version of Windows 8, maybe that matters too?)
