Windows 8 Release Preview : Installation Methods and Screenshots


  1. Hi, how big is Windows 8 installed? What are it’s hard drive requirement?
    Is in windows 8 winsxs folder? (Main reason why I’m still on XP)

  2. Hard disk space reuirement as specified are 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) .
    Yes WinSxS folder is there. If you are upgrading from XP, you can keep User accounts and files. But still I recommend you take up a complete back up if important files are there before upgrading as its a Release Preview. Or better for trying it out, do a fresh install on a PC oth than Production PC if you can spare one for just trying out.
