    Dual Booted on netbook.
    It was 50gb partition and win8 took only 7.34gb, isn't it too strange?

    Started my download last night at about 10 pm, local Thailand time. It is now 8 pm on second night and it has been downloading all the time except for the many times it stops and I must Resume. My connection is as fast as I can get in my part of the country and is a satellite hook up with the dish pointing to low horizen in the south east and my contracted for 1meg speed is normally running at about 150k.

    I tell all this not because I want sympathy but rather so those of you with the lightning speed connects, like the one that says 10 minutes to download can have a better appreciation for what you have.

    It is my choice to be living here so the only purpose here is to expose the fact that slow can be slower than what you have and hope that you appreciate your lightning connections.

    Started the download last night, was done when I got up this morning.
    Had some issues getting it on a USB stick, finally sorted it out, actually installed it on my laptop (triple boot) in the airport waiting for a flight. Activated and got updates in the hotel.

    So far it's all good.

My sound used to work in the consumer preview fine but since I upgraded to the Release Preview I need the volume max and headphones in to hear anything. Any help appreciated. If more info is needed just ask.
