For some reason my cementmixer (brain) told me I could set up W8 in the following manner BUT it was a failure.
I used this procedure over 30 years ago on large IBM mainframes. The following was my logic:

On the C drive I only have 1 partition which is used for W7 files etc. I used diskmgmt to decrease volume and created a F partition where I THOUGHT I could place W8 automatically on download.

I proceded to download W8 with no problem. I did notice that it asked for a DVD or USB Flash but continued to download anyway.

The fun started when I ran intallation where it proceeded to 90% then I received this message

" Setup unable to initialize startup folder " failure code 0X8007002

If I changed the folder name from Primary Folder to Windows 8 and activated it would that work.
