    installing Win 8 consumer Preview over Developer Preview


    Hi,can Win8 C.P. be installed without removing Win8 D.P.

    I guess not, but since until now my Revodrive 3 X2 gave me problems with the Win8 D.P. install, i hate to do a fresh try with the Consumer Preview.

    I would loose the Win8 is am using now.

    When starting the setup, hard drive is not recognized.....

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can upgrade to CP from DP but I would suggest you to do a clean install.
    If you want to upgrade from DP, use this link: Download Windows 8 Consumer Preview
    For clean install, burn the required .iso image from this link:
