    Difficulty installing Win8RP


    Tried several times to install Win8RP along Win7 to no avail.

    • expanded the tiny System partition to 12GB (overkill)
    • Created an empty partition for Win8 - install did not work
    • Copied all the data from the Win7 partition to the Win8 partition - install did not work

    In the middle of the installing files step it hangs and goes nowhere

    What should I do differently?

    Hi trainee. Welcome to EF.

    I'm on my phone now, but there's a tutorial by Brink that explains all. It's called download 8 RP. Hope that helps.
