    Problem on installation windows 8


    Hi. I have a HP Pavilion DV6500 with Vista. Yesterday i bought windows pro, downloaded and wrote it on dvd. I begun the installation (upgrade), but at the 56%, it stopped and said that the installation failed. I tried it 2 times so far with the same results. I would appreciate some help.

    Use How to Do a Clean Install - Windows 8 (Using Install Medium and BIOS) as DaveHC says.1 Follow with Clean Install with Windows 8 Upgrade if needed. Activation is covered in this tutorial, but activating is not likely to be a problem for you.

    1Using the steps in this tutorial results in partitioning and formatting as needed.
