    Windows 8 Developer Preview English downloads are now available.

    System Requirements

    Windows Developer Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
    • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch

    You can't uninstall the Windows Developer Preview. To reinstall your previous operating system, you must have restore or installation media.

    Windows Developer Preview with developer tools
    Install on:
    Windows 7 and Windows Vista Clean install only
    Windows XP Clean install only

    Windows Developer Preview (32-bit or 64-bit)
    Install on:
    Windows 7 and Windows Vista You can keep accounts, files, and settings
    Windows XP You can only keep accounts and files

    A clean install is supported on all builds. You will only receive the full set of installation options when setup is launched in Windows.
