    Windows 8 Installer Epic FAIL


    This one isn't major, but it sure does sound funny! On the installation, there is a window. Try closing said window and you see the following:

    "To install Windows, you must run Windows installation. If you cancel the installation, your computer might restart."

    Obvious?!

    I agree, a screenshot of this would be absolute gold!
    Though sadly this is what Microsoft must cater towards these days... Most people wouldn't know how to install an operating system to save their life and hence Microsoft is trying to make it 'simpler', and sounding stupid in the process. :-P
