Anyone know what could be causing this?



I bought the album off Amazon and when it shows up on the music app its all scattered.

Edit: fixed my issue by removing the album and putting it back into my music folder....

Hey guys I used the Windows 8 RP during pre-launch and currently I re-installed 7. I want to buy Windows 8 for $40, so I want to install the digital version. Will the digital version give me the ISO or option to fresh install?

 

Is it possible to get the ISO for Windows 8?

Yeah, when you buy it online and download it, you get an option to make an ISO.

If the upgrade version sees a valid install of a qualifying version of windows already on the system, say on another partition/drive, you can just run setup as normal choosing "custom". If installing into a blank drive with nothing on it you have to do the double install method. Install 8 by booting from media, don't activate, then from within the newly installed 8 run setup from the media. You will input your key, setup will run and reboot a couple of times, when finished you will be activated and ready to go.

This worked for me with no issues for one of my machines. Also on another system having XP on another partition I was able to install just once.

With the double install method you end up with a "windows.old" folder, which I am pretty sure you can delete without any issues.

Press Windows+R and type "winver". The copyright should show your OS as "Windows 8 Pro with Media Center".

Thanks for that. I was just thinking about checking if it is activated since Microsoft sent e-mail and I knew I already downloaded it.
