Hi,

I am selling my computer and I am going to remove my hard-drive which has windows 7 installed and the person I am selling it to is going to put their own hard-drive in and install windows 8. Can this be done will it work perfectly?

And what is the difference between windows 8 dsp and the cheaper windows 8 single language dsp. And what is dsp?

The windows 8 drivers should be in the HDD, eh?

DSP stands for “Delivery Service Partner" -- which are copies used by computers builds companies.

@Mattv1993,

Check Windows 8 Upgrade advisor while your computer is still running Windows 7. It will tell you whether the components are Win8-compatible.

everythings compatible except amd dual core optimizer, don't know what that is.
