    THANK U EVERYONE.


    i Finally managed to install Win 8 on my Laptop.
    i Still dont know what the error was or how the error was created.


    i Ran the Setup in wiNdows 7 of windows 8.
    Then it asked to keep Everything or nothing, i selected Everything.
    & then the process went smoothly.


    & finally i have Win 8 running without any error.
    i also installed all the drivers of Win8


    i Dint require any tool whatsoever to do this.


    But i still dont understand few things
    After instAlling , when i try to install it once again from BIOS on a new drive it once again gives me the same error.
    What is it that is causing this problems, still.
    That it can only be fixed by UPGRADING & not by ClEAN install ???


    PLS Guyz shed some liGht & help

    "Then it asked to keep Everything or nothing, i selected Everything."

    Is this option, when installing on a dual boot? All I get for a clean install -( single partition) is an option to keep personal files.)

    it is an OPTION to keep personal Files.
    & it installs over ur Windows 7 not on another partition. {so no dualBoot}
