    1) Go to your PC manufacture website, and download all drivers available. Then, move them to a flash drive, etc.
    2) BACKUP YOUR FILES!! I cannot stress this enough. If you have a Live account, you can store up to 7 GB of files on SkyDrive.
    3)Follow this tutorial.
    Clean Install - Windows 8
    4) Install all drivers you downloaded.
    5) Use Ninite to install all programs you frequently use.
    6) Install any other software Ninite doesn't offer (Photoshop, etc.)
    7) Enjoy!
