    Have you tried burning the iso image and install on a separate partition? clean install is the better option.

    Again, this is another mark against Win8!

    I use Win7 for hours each day & it does what I want. "It Does Exactly What it Says On The Tin"

    I don't any of th "I" stuff & don't want anything related to it!

    I think MS should be lumped in with "Facebook" & Apple. I think the will go down the tube.

    People just don't look before they leap! Remember in the "Wizard of OZ" when they found out what the "Wizard" was.

    I was in at the beginning & don't like the path that the industry is taking!!
