Windows 8 consumer preview with the new compatibility and installation wizard - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will talk about Windows Consumer Preview 8 which was just released a few hours ago. More specifically a tool to talk about Windows Consumer Preview 8 that will facilitate installing Windows 8. It is a mix Wizard that you download from the Microsoft official website and that, once run will tell us how many of the applications already installed in the operating system that we have now will work in Windows Consumer Preview 8 and if hardware components such as: webcam, printer, video card, audio, wireless will work in Windows Consumer Preview 8. Going through the wizard, you'll know if it's worth trying if you can try it on our PC and if our favorite apps will work in Windows 8. Also, if you have a printer or other peripheral to your PC, it is recommended that you connect to your PC before running Wizard to find out if they will be compatible with Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
8 Windows Consumer Preview is not the final version but as its name says, it is a test version for regular users can test the new Windows 8, get familiar with it.
8 Windows Consumer Preview can be tested only on laptops and desktops following that later this year also be available in a version for mobile devices and tablets.
From what I've tested so far, Windows Store, store applications can be used to download and install applications on it. However as you can use the Windows Store, you must have an internet connection. And also the Start button was removed from both the desktop interface and from the Metro. To access system settings, the brightness slider and volume button turn off, you have to use the Charm Bar located on the right side of the display along it and will be visible only when 'll hold your mouse cursor in the bottom right corner of the display.
It should be noted that wizard we talked about in this tutorial is provided towards the end to make a bootable USB stick or burn in our place on a DVD ISO image. If you want to put it on a stick, it will be at least 4 GB.

    I don't know what to say ... honestly it's like it's no longer "windows" I don't really like it I don't know what, I'll try it more to see what and how yes I really don't find it spectacular and not easy to use like: xp, vista, 7. Maybe with the final version it will be better but I can barely get used to 7 and a change to 8 really upsets me :))) I would stay old-fashioned to say that my favorite and I think that of many it is and will remain still "windows xp" even if it doesn't have that many effects, it's still their best windows !!! Thanks for the tutorial (very quick) I appreciate this on this site a new news appears here immediately.

      I'd advise you to watch the tutorial head-tail without rewind because I showed how to just download the ISO image.
      If you still want to put the stick that tutorial, insert a USB stick in the drive before running the wizard.

    I love becoming more 8 windows, looks great, i put some new effects, aero effect looks much better, the new logo is very successful, how about Windows Store Hats. I like the new operating systems can be run on tablets and even if the competition is high or I think you are successful, once you appear or multiple applications. Windows 8 worth all the money, I think the biggest step is made from Microsft Windows 95 over.
    Windows 8 eat less resources than Windows 7 (tested by my house), I saw them easier (for the PC has only 1 GB RAM and a Celeron last generation). I can not say that it runs Windows extraorinar 8 on it, but doing better than Windows7 orcum.

    Speaking while ago I read on a blog that can run Windows 8 Xbox live on windows 8, now what's the word? It may be true?

  25. I see that the requirements are quite small for 8 windows and that seems very good, do not know how compatible it is with audio drivers and I say this because owning an emu sound card in Windows 0404 7 not work one hundred percent, though promises much this new operating system, my question is when will the final version?

    Hi guys, I downloaded and installed the iso 64 bits go, but I found some bugs already. If the final version of 2012 end, it will not be much better, I wish the successful use ptr. those who like. I'm sure I'll remain on 7, and Linux Mint.

    Nice preview!

  36. WINDOWS 8 a real shit for normal desktop PCs, it deserves to put WINDOWS 8 on a PC with touch monitor or tablets. From my point of view, it has lost all its charm. I at least can't support touch devices. In conclusion, I don't know how to call it crap. I expected it to come up with an improvement to help programs, drivers, etc. not to eat too many resources
