    Works like a charm after I figured out it would not carry over the CC and stuff like that. It is hellishly quick even with the 5400rpm drive and my only concern is that it is linked to the UK because at start up or install it asked for a language and I only had the choice of English - UK.

    Am busy now downloading stuff for emails and the other apps I like and I found how to get that 7 style screen as the panel one was getting a bit tedious.

    The only other little niggle is whether my Kaspersky will activate on the same code

    But all in all very quick and am not averse to it. Maybe even a SSD to clone to and do the same thing might help to make things a little quicker

    Oh and by the by I got two CD's 32bit and 64bit in the same pack.

    Great news John.

    Yeah, you think it's fast it now on an old 5400 rpm HDD, just wait until you have it on a SSD.

    It is nice to have both the 32-bit and 64-bit DVDs included now.

    Yes I know Shawn the speed is just so incredibly faster than 7 I mean 660MB of updates in less than 10 minutes and downloading Googled stuff couldn't believe it!

    Now if I can get my email up and running and the usual stuff I use I shall seriously think about putting it on the Samsung 830 and use it instead of the 7 .

    But I think the 32bit as Gary was explaining to me that I will need to get another upgrade to fix that older lappy but at them sort of prices heck it's a drop in the bucket to a full OS.

    I am very pleasantly surprised with it I was expecting a freak show and it isn't at all. Just goes to show you how entrenched you get in some things and blinkered.

    I also may be barking up the wrong tree here, but perhaps it might be considered adding to the tuts whether the OS supports USB3 for it's installation or not. I have had some (bad) experience with that on modern USB3 hardware, so maybe it could be added as a hardware requirement/information. In all relevant tutorials.

    Hello Coram,

    It depends on if your motherboard supports booting from USB 3.0 or not.

    And that would also depend on UEFI or not I guess.. hmmm...
    Good point.

    But are USB3 drivers inherent to W8?

    No so much UEFI, but if your have your UEFI/BIOS set to be able to see USB at boot, and if USB 3.0 is supported. Windows 8 does support booting from USB 3.0 if the USB was created properly.

    Yes they are. I have an ASUS MB that uses an ASMedia controller chip for USB 3 as my chipset doesn't have USB 3 built-in and Windows 8 supplied the default driver.
