    I believe that the Win Dev. Preview stated that you would not be able to "upgrade" your Windows 8 Developer Preview to another version, and that you would have to a clean install of the new version....ie. which would be this the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
  3. ignore what the others are saying

    you cant uninstall an operating system you need to delete it then install another

    here is a quick guide

    if its a dualbooted pc.

    all you need to do is log into win7 or the other os you are using

    then click start,right-click on computer/my computer

    then click on properties

    then disk management

    and delete the partition for windows 8

    then if your in vista/win7 you can right-click on win7 partition then resize to expand the partition to use the unused space

    Godwin's Law strikes again. Also, I might be wrong, but you can only install Windows 8 on a HAV enabled computer, which this user might not have, so it's not always the golden bullet.

    As it's done dual boot, the concern about not being able to roll back to Windows 7 is irrelevant, he just needs to format the Windows 8 partition and play around with the Boot configs.

    Hope that helps anyone else looking for the same answers.

    It's all very well referring people to Google, but unless they know where to start looking, the internet can be full of crap.

    Put bluntly, if you're here to help, help. Don't be a patronising douchebag about it.

    But, if you're going the Virtual route in future here's a few links:

    Have a nice day and don't feed the trolls ; )
