    Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup ERROR

    I downloaded Windows 8 Consumer Preview from Microsoft (no. Iso file: no install disk / USB request).
    PC Features:
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
    Processor: Intel Core i3 M 380@2.53GHz
    Video Card: Intel (r) HD Graphics
    Sound card: Audio IDT High Definition Audio CODEC
    HDD: 500 GB
    Ram: 4 GB

    Once you download the file Download / Install I open it and start downloading the files of Windows 8 and install it.
    When the PC restarts to complete the installation is a sign that says: <<Preparing ...%>> ... So far, so row, smooth.
    But when you restart again appears an inscription that says it is setting up your registry and then a error window that says Windows can not complete the installation and then tells me that if I want to install Windows 8 Preview I have to repeat the Consumer installation ... but I do so I've already made ​​and remade over three times!
    Can you help me?

    Hello Sammy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You may have better luck using the ISO to create either a bootable Windows 8 installation DVD or USB flash drive, then do a clean install using the tutorial below.
