Windows 8 system requirements.

I have a friend who's computer is rather old. It doesn't meet Windows 8 Consumer Preview system requirements and he wants to download it. IS their a way he can download it? Also, since the Consumer Previews here, can anyone tell me if theirs a link to the Developer Preview?

  1. Best answer
    Don't bother with the Developer preview.

    Are you sure his system doesn't meet the system requirements?

    1 GHz or faster processor
    1GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

    If he wants to try - use the 32bit version.
    Just help him be prepared to re-install his current OS, what ever that is, if it goes wrong.

  3. There is a mimimum resolution requirement to run Metro properly. I recommend full 1080p graphics. You may also want to make sure you have the latest version of abode flash player. I am testing in on my older computer, which had 32b Vista.

    System Specs
    MB-Intel DG35EC Graphics 720p (should be 900p for metro)
    CPU-E7200 Core 2 Duo, 2 Gigs of DDR2, hd seagate 360gig
