    You could download the iso file for windows 8 and then burn that to disk and then run it off of there or even extract the iso file and run the setup from there.

    What you can do though is if you download it you a program like 7-Zip to extract it and then run setup file. This way you can do it without burning a disk and all the files will be there so it wont need to download stuff. Also windows 7 has a built in iso burner.

    Hello Alex,

    Windows 8 is really not hard to download and install if you would still like to.

    First, download the Windows 8 ISO to make things easier.

    Second, if you like, create a bootable Windows 8 installation DVD or USB flash drive. You could also just skip this to use the ISO to install with step 6 of the next link below this one.
    Finally, I'm assuming that you are wanting to dual boot Windows 8 with say Windows 7. The tutorial below can help show you how to install Windows 8 using either the ISO, DVD, or USB.
    If you have any questions, then please just let us know.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
