    Erm, you mean MBR the first option or the second?
    2nd as you have UEFI and that seems to work better on your machine.
    I just looked at your system specs. Those were the days.
    confused*

    I'm in the "boonies" is what they call it around here. I was happy to help and looked at is as a challenge. Hopefully will come to a successful end with Superfly's help and kindness. Waiting to see.

    Yes, hopefully..

    I don't know what I can do for you guys in return... I speak perfect Greek, Serbian and English, I know Transcription, Internet Marketing, Social Media, Websites/Blogs, Windows 7 and natural health... hahahahaha

    Any of those things you can use, let me know, I'm at your disposal, anything you need, both of you

    Did you get sorted in the end? There are too many posts - I can't figure it out.

    I hope so - certainly you (and Popeye and Superfly) put in a lot of effort...

    Hey adamf, no, we failed to get windows 7 working.

    But with Superfly's and popeye's help I'll be learning and moving on to Windows 8 on this new lap top...


    Guys, sorry for no updates, I fell asleep last night.

    It took Windows 8 over 1,30 hour to download, and just as it did, it had to Confirm the download, which took another hour or so I guess, and I fell asleep at some point, I was dead tired, it was a long day yesterday..

    But I'm here now, and I have the whole day in front of me to work on getting Windows 8.1 running and learning how to use it and everything...

    This is the screen I woke up to:

    Click image for larger version

    I should choose the third one, right? Or the second so that it creates a Media file (ISO)? Sorry for the noob question..

    Ok, I googled, and found:

    "Install by creating media: Will create an ISO of Windows 8 or 8.1 to installed via a bootable USB or DVD"

    Makes sense, as I said previously.

    Alright, I'm clickin it

    Ok, I chose to save the ISO to desktop...

    We're here now:

    EDIT: Ok, I am creating a bootable USB now with Rufus, as Superfly told me to yesterday...

    In Legacy the USB wasn't accepted. But honestly, legacy never accepted Anything, it Always got me to that GNU GRUB page, no matter what I tried...

    Now with UEFI, we got this

    Ok, things look similar to Windows 7, so they look familiar to me.

    I'll go: "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)"

    I have 3 Partitions, I'll Format the first 2 and then install Windows 8 on the second one:

    Click image for larger version

    The third partition I assume is my USB, so that's why I won't be touching (formatting) that... I could be wrong though...
