    I think this release of Windows 8 is far, far better than the Consumer Preview. the new mouse pointers are awesome and it is so fast. It feels like I'm running it on my ssd even though I'm not (because I don't have enough room) It is VERY fast!

    What a disappointment. You can't keep your programs or settings from Win8 CP. Still very exciting, though. I'm gonna install the x64 RP in about an hour.

    Are you trying to install a 64 bit version on 32 bit CPU?
