    Can't find the option to burn an ISO disk

    Just to sum up a few things I read within this thread: - if you got the option "install later", just choose it. The upgrade wizard is build in a manner, that it can resume on the step, where it was interrupted. - You will find a shortcut "Download Windows 8" or similar on your desktop, that...

    Solved A cure for the "Windows to go workspace bug"

    I've searched the net, but I found no other English article about that issue so far. Thought, I let this community partizipate into my findings. What's the beef? Although Windows 8 Pro doesn't supports Windows To Go, some users in German MS Answers Forum reported issues with "Windows To Go...

    Apps Not Working

    Well, that's not "interesting", it is not unlikely. Here in German Micrsoft Answers Forum we (the mods) are suggesting an uninstall of Nvidia software before Win 8 Upgrade. The reason - beside the simple driver, the installer package came with some additional components - some implemented as...

    Can't upgrade Xp pro 64bit to win 8pro

    AFAIK, Windows XP SP3 isn't out for 64 Bit yet. Only a clean install is the solution - but the user can't download it from wizard. My recommendation is, to order install media that should contain 32 and 64 bit DVD. But you should be sure, that your hardware is good for 64 bit Win 8 Pro (signed...

    Customized User Profile Issue - Metro Apps not working

    I'm not sure, that registry keys will do the trick. AFAIK it's a security issue. Apps are storing some data in user profile - and this requires access rights to trusted level low. Moving user profiles doesn't grants this trusted level to the target folder. Maybe there is also some other limit...

    It seems to me, that Davidmedia has spreaded his error in several places, without garbage collecting the mess, he left. Here is a nearly identical thread. The reason for this cause was a wrong setup-target estimation - whilst the user intended to install to a SSD, setup grabbed the 2 TB hard...

    Installing onto a tablet with a USB Drive as a HDD

    @whs: just a tip - instead of imagex I did suggest to use dism like: dism /apply-image /imagefile:I:\sources\install.wim /index:1 /applydir:H:\ as I discussed at [1]). This tool is shipped with Windows 8. Overall, I can't recommend Windows To Go with Consumer Preview. Maybe I have had not too...
