    Thanks. Didn't want to waste a download!

    Hello Jim,

    Using "Sources" is only if you were to install Windows 8 from within Windows 7 to dual boot so as not to replace Windows 7 with Windows 8. If you install Windows 8 at boot to dual boot, then it installs as usual.


    Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista
    I used it for RP and assumed it would work for RTM.

    Will try it out later today.

    Unable to "upgrade" from RP to Retail. I have a post going in the install forum folder. According to MS, this is NORMAL so don't expect to be able to.

    Just finished installing.... the biggest differences I see are the install and getting ready things (there is an intro video and words) and this: File Explorer instead of Windows Explorer, and a few app differences.
