I"m having trouble running just 8 after dual booting 7 and 8. My 7 partition is still marked as active and primary, and I can't delete it at this point. I shrunk it, but my 8 partition can't extend over the free space, and I can't set it as primary.
Helps?

First, make a backup of any important data. Then download Ubuntu, Puppy, or any other live linux distro. Once you have that, you can use Gparted or something similar to edit your partitions. Just remember the first step, as there's always a risk. I also suggest keeping the live image, as it's very useful in case you need to recover data, edit partitions, remove malware on USB drives without any risk to your data, etc.

I gave in and decided on a reinstall. Unfortunately, I decided to redownload in the computer lab, where it took like 15 minutes to download. However, I think the upgrade assistant decided to give me 32 bit version... So I'm going to have to reredownload and rereinstall.

I found a portable hard drive I can back up everything on, so I can safely move everything, delete all partitions, and start from scratch.

It doesn't seem like I made it to the member list. redface.gif

I posted my screenshot here.

I also just installed the Windows 8 Pro on my notebook (Lenovo U410 with Crucial M4 256GB SSD), and it seriously boots in 7 seconds from pressing the power button! eek.gif

Attention people... Want a 64 bit version? Use a 64 bit version computer to download. I thought I would be smart and download in the computer lab, where download speeds were stupid fast, on 32 bit machines. Now, after several reinstalls, I am back. smile.gif
