The folder when you make the USB with the BOOTX64.EFI is what you are talking about? If so no you do not need to remove it. Just boot off the USB normally.

Thx Sean just did instal on x64 Win8 and everything went the same. Two slight problems I had were when installing Intel RST it needed .net 3 not avalible by default and after disabling SuperFetch. Turning on .net 3 is found in programs and features. After diabling SuperFetch there is no need to Regedit as there is nothing to edit. I know this is a Win7 guide but worked perfect with Win8. Thx

I really hate bothering you, but you know what your talking about. thats not a common thing around here. would you be able to tell me which steps may effect the game. im going to restore all the way back to when i first installed windows and start over.

When you go through the options on the screen when you just install the OS like someone normally would, when you get to the selection upgrade vs custom/advanced install click custom/advanced. There you will see your partitions. Click them, go down below the partition selections and you will see a drives options advanced button, click it, click delete delete button...click it, if you see any others delete them too. The at the end you will only see the disk as a whole as a selection. click it them click the format button. Then proceed to install. 

I have no idea what you are doing wrong with my set up in CMD because the very first thing you do after selecting the drive you install on is clean it which removes the partition tables from the disk. Thus the whole disk will be free space....

So, i did what you said, and was curious and did a spacesniffer.. It was showing 25gb of hibertnate.sys and 32gb of pagefile.sys. I took the hibernate one off, but as i read i think is dangerous to delete te pagefile.sys, right ? It is normal to have a 32gb of pagefile.sys ?
I have exactly 32gb of ram too.

Thanks a lot for the help man.




EDIT: I`m actually a freaking MORON and did not read all your guide. You address both problems there, THANKS ANYWAY.

Turn Off/Shrink the Hibernation File:
Turn Off/Shrink System Protection:
Turn off drive indexing:
Turn Off/Shrink Page file----i did not do
Change power options:
Trim is activated
Run Windows Experience Index Assessment:
Disable Prefetch and Superfetch: this is the one i question the most which includes regedit
Turn off Unused Windows 7 Features: turned off explore only, bc i use chrome
Turn off Recycle Bin or reduce in size-turned off
Turn Off Reliability Monitor:
then i tried moving things to HDD. i have to read up more on this bc now i have folders of the same in both drives. i know that im suppose to go into safe mode and delete copied files. but im a little confused if how i set this up is correct.

these are the steps i went through. i hope this makes sense
