    How did you setup your Win 8 install?

    I installed the public version (win8 pro upgrade) with a USB stick. I had to remove stuff from my C drive to make room. Its runs perfectly, so far.

    Windows 8: Do you need it?

    I love it. Faster in every way. Games run faster also. I used a usb stick with the win 8 pro upgrade. If I don't want to use tiles I click on the desktop tile, simples!

    An Alpha test is just that, an Alpha. Beta is the next test version. These are different versions of a piece of test software.

    Start Button

    No problems with anything? I thought I would get bsod and reboots/ crashes. This is most unusual for me? I can only put the reliability down to a new ssd drive?!

    Problems installing Windows 8 on Vertex 2 SSD

    I installed win 8 onto my OCZ solid 3 ssd with a dvd, with no problems. Booted with the dvd and 15 mins later running win 8. Its running exectionally well, which is strange for a pre beta? Only had 1 BSOD after downloading the second set of updates. Not sure if this helps you though?

    Solved CPU hogging

    Check on your resource monitor and see if you can see anything. The cpu shouldnt be loaded this much unless you are using allot of background programs?

    Solved Disk Defrag in W8

    I dont think it will make any difference as a ssd has no physical disk. It will access data from anywhere at the same speed.

    A Few Concerns

    Please remember this is an early build. Some things will change after we & many other people give feedback to MS. I remember when we tested early builds of win 7 things did get changed for the better after feedback. ;)

    Windows 8 - What do you think?

    I don't like the metro version, but you can opt for the desktop. It works well then. I am now trying to customise it to my liking? Its fast and shuts down most apps automatically!! Having a bit of trouble setting security in IE for my lastpass addon. Works fine with firefox, with lastpass.
