I'm having some issues with installing Windows 8. I bought the $15 thing and downloaded it. When I try to do the install from within Windows 7 option, it says:
"We couldn't install Windows 8".
"We've set your PC back to the way it was right before you started installing Windows 8"
So I tried the USB thing and it is saying something about:
"No drives found. Click load driver to get a storage driver."
or something like that. I don't have any "storage drivers' and I can't get past it.
Are you hitting the "F6" key while booting off of the Windows DVD?
No, I don't have a DVD to boot from. I've tried doing it from the OS and with the USB.
I was on the phone with Microsoft support for over 3 hours, and they still can't fix it. Apparently I was given something worth over $100 for the inconvenience but I couldn't understand what the tech support guy said. Lol. I think it was something to do with "advanced technical support" or something. Anyway, they are calling again tomorrow to try and resolve it. Very annoying. -_-
I am having the same error as you. Although, I am trying to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro from Windows 8 Release Preview. I am not using a bootable USB, just running the upgrade from within Windows 8 Release Preview using Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant.
Hmm. That's interesting. Your tablet is also interesting. 8GB of RAM, a SSD and a 1.00GHz CPU. Lol, cool.
Hopefully these issues will be fixed.
EDIT: Yes! I fixed it. It turns out Intel Smart Response Technology was blocking my storage devices from appearing or something. Anyway, I disabled it and I am installing Windows 8 on to my SSD right now. I'm surprised I didn't think of this sooner.
