It is very easy to install Windows 8 in the computer. In case you have been looking for a way to install Windows 8, follow these simple OmniTech guides to do the same. Before starting with the installation process, you need to make sure that the internet connection is working well and you have a copy of Windows 8 operating system. Last but not the least, the computer should be functional. Take a backup of your computer, as you will lose all the data in the current system during the installation process.
- Check if the system requirements are met with the help of the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant.
- After this, the upgrade assistant will recommend the version that is most compatible with the system.
- Click on the download link, in order to download these files. You will have to make the payment, before downloading Windows 8.
- You will get the product key only after you make the payment. You need a product key at the time of activation.
- Once the purchase is complete, the necessary files would start downloading.
- Next, you have to decide on how to install Windows 8, when the computer asks you how you prefer to install Windows 8.
- You can install it later by creating an ISO Image file and then copying it to a DVD.
- Insert the disk and copy all files related to Windows 8. Initiate the installation, by selecting the option Get Updates.
- Once the installation is complete, you can start customizing the Settings on the computer such as color, theme and other PC settings.
