    attempting to run Windows Consumer Preview


    All right! I managed to fix my computer! I've used old Windows 7 installation disc and retried to boot from it until I did it! Then I fixed it using the dvd, now I can start Windows 8. It's not completely fixed (it's slow as hell), but now I can install Windows 8 again!!!

    attempting to run Windows Consumer Preview


    I have another problem. I want to do a fresh install of Windows, and since I have no usable flash drive, and 4,8gb installation won't fit on dvds, I have deleted all Windows except running one. There was installation, but I have overseen the fact that my remaining Windows isn't c:\, but d:\
    therefore, since I deleted Windows c:\, I can no longer start windows, or more accurately I can only start Windows and after I log in which takes 15 minutes, I have no interface. I have total 5 processes running. And task manager is like on previous windows...

    I just need to get to Windows 8 installation. How?

    Mirac if your starting from scratch, listen to Vrosa, and install EasyBCD, once that is installed, you can set up both O/Ses.
