  1. Just download the whole thing, there isn't that much that you DON'T need.

    Assuming you are downloading from M'soft, you would normally d'load an ISO file and save it to your Hard Drive. Then, once you have it, either burn to a blank DVD or set up a USB flash drive.
  3. the file windows 8.1 file is actually 8.7 gigs and it wont fit on 1 dvd is it ok if i download the os from 2 cds or should i try doing a boot from usb

    Strange, I have 8.1 on a single DVD...d'loaded from M'soft...
  6. The file should be like 3-4gb depending on whether you're downloading the 32-bit or 64 bit version of Windows.
