    Win 8 Installation

    Want to install to drive other than 8. Will it work to remove C drive from computer and put in a new formated drive and boot to it with my downloaded ISO file. The computer should boot to that and install. Then remove it and put the C file back in place. Take the Win 8 disk and put it in my external drive and load from it. Will that work? Thanks for your thoughts/

    In fact I just did exactly that (had a failing HD) and yes no problems.
