    Hello Raj,

    I would recommend a clean install to Windows 8 instead. Especially since this is only a beta (consumer preview) right now.

    Personally, since it is a beta with a release candidate coming out in late May, you might consider reinstalling Windows 7, then either dual boot with Windows 8 or have Windows 8 in a virtual machine (VMWare Player or VirtualBox).

    Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit (7 Ult, Vista & XP in V-Box)


    I dropped the Win 8CP onto a stable and mature Win 7 Ultimate setup to test the upgrade facility
    and compatibility with my exixting progs (without having to re-install them all).

    Yes, I did do an image backup of the Win 7 setup first.

    Although I'd expected at least a few issues, the only one I actually had was with the Intel 4500MHD graphics.

    However, installing the 4500's Vista driver solved that, and it's been rocking along for about a fortnight/three
    weeks now, with no problems whatsoever.

    Maybe I was just lucky......but it really WAS that easy.

    Hello IceFire,

    I think the OP means the Charms bar.

    I managed to trash Metro, and not sure how - on a Win2Go installation:

    Click image for larger version
    and worse:
    Click image for larger version
    but the desktop works fine

    Well done -I would like to find out how to do that.

    I don't suppose you could post up a file list and the reg entries for your great win2go ?

    I left nearly all of metro out of my pe build - sadly, pin to taskbar doesn't work.
