Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums


New Acer Lap Top came with Linux - How to Install Win 7?

  1. #191


    It didn't work. The USB got recognized, but failed to install it due to some error that pops up...

    I will now use the above method to quickly try the 3 Windows 7 Installations I got, one last try, I promise.

    If none works, then...

    The End...


    By the time I'm done with this, let me ask, can I get Windows 8 in a legit way, or do I have to resort to torrents?

    Thought it would be but started you out with the tools since you seemed lost at first. You've learned a lot and I have some too. Maybe this is the one that will work. Not so sure about XP and UEFI though.
    Yeah, I have learned a whole lot, thank you guys for that, I'm sure this will all (or some) come in handy in life, you know, computer-wise...

    Superfly already offered you a legit key. Very kind of him BTW.

    No torrents. Download from M$ server install and activate.

    Superfly, was it you or popeye who offered me an activation key? I mean, I would like to have it, if it's necessary.. I mean, you guys already helped me much and wasted enough time on me, I feel uncomfortable asking for more.. :/

    You know, I think I better download it first and see if it can be installed, and then I'll PM Superfly... unless the key is needed during the installation and not later for activation? But there should be a trial thing so that I can install it, and I can use the key after that to activate it, you know, assuming I manage to install it...

    How about the version, do I get Win 8 or Win 8.1?

    I PM'd instructions... Once you up and running, we can get the tweaks for a Win7 type experience sorted.
