[QUOTE=P320;36386899]How do you even install Windows 8 on a tablet?[/QUOTE] Like you install any other OS on it, that is, in a x86 tablet
[QUOTE=P320;36386899]How do you even install Windows 8 on a tablet?[/QUOTE] USB Flash or DVD drive.
[QUOTE=bassie12;36387047]USB Flash or DVD drive.[/QUOTE] Arrrg. What security measures has Microsoft included on this USB OS feature to help prevent piracy? :v:
anyone remember how to fix amd drivers? had the problem again when I jumped to release preview
[QUOTE=P320;36386899]How do you even install Windows 8 on a tablet?[/QUOTE] Probably the same way you install Windows 7 on a tablet.

[QUOTE=werewolf0020;36386205]like this perhaps?

Windows 8 is being developed for ARM, but it won't be released as an installable package (although some people might develop ROMs)

"The New Microsoft Surface"? Oh dear... Have they killed off their other surface tech for these tablets? I hope not... I loved how they handled item detection on Surface. [editline]19th June 2012[/editline] Okay... I now understand fully why Microsoft wanted to launch a touch-based operating system... Because this is their first foray into producing and selling an entire, through-and-through, Microsoft computer. I UNDERSTAND NOW! And I think I like it.
[QUOTE=P320;36386899]How do you even install Windows 8 on a tablet?[/QUOTE] You can't install WinRT (WOA) on a tablet since it's for OEMs only, but for an x86 a flash drive will suffice. Just "burn" the ISO to a flash drive with Microsoft's Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool.
Is Windows RT supposed to be the ARM version of Windows 8?
[QUOTE=GhostSonic;36391181]Is Windows RT supposed to be the ARM version of Windows 8?[/QUOTE] Yeah. It's like Windows Embedded.

I've seen it installed on iPads, and was curious how the user installs something with no expansion ports... Surely Apple wouldn't allow a rival OS in their own AppStore... Would they?

Guys anybody else reallly excited for Microsoft Surface? Like, I'm really planning on getting one so I can have a full Win8 experience.
[QUOTE=Elements;36394442]Guys anybody else reallly excited for Microsoft Surface? Like, I'm really planning on getting one so I can have a full Win8 experience.[/QUOTE] you can get a full experience with other tablets and laptops too, it's just that this surface device is sleek as hell
[QUOTE=Elements;36394442]Guys anybody else reallly excited for Microsoft Surface? Like, I'm really planning on getting one so I can have a full Win8 experience.[/QUOTE] I am be completely serious here, but what full Windows 8 experience? Either you get the ARM Surface, and lose backwards compatibility, and essentially you have a Microsoft iPad, or you get the x86 one, which is heavier, thicker, almost certain to have worse battery life, and to make decent use of the backwards compatibility, needs the mouse and keyboard, making it a little netbook really. It has a touch screen sure, but I don't think any one device can be considered the full Windows 8
Microsoft said that the surface was the first tablet ever to have dual antennas, yet my DIY Tablet has dual antennas as well [img]http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa113/flygirafda3/waht/saddowns.gif[/img]

The start screen has been updated in the newer build that the Surface is running. The icons for desktop programs are now bigger (I'm assuming they're 64x64).

[QUOTE=Jimmy422;36398843]Now if they'd just color code the tiles based on the dominant RGB value of the icon...[/QUOTE] If they did that it would make the start screen much more pleasing.
It's much better but it's still not very pleasing, They should allow the users to set custom icons (full icons) for those so it doesn't look out of the place, I mean hell you've been able to do that since Win95 for shortcuts

Instead of some rainbow clusterfuck.

Also anyone know if that pinball game is gonna cost money? and is there a way to get it in the release preview, since it isn't in it but was in the consumer preview.

[QUOTE=P320;36403613]Or heaven-for-fucking-bid we want to customize our own tiles with icons we make ourselves...[/QUOTE] Microsoft probably won't let us do that, but maybe Stardock or someone will make a program for it.
Go into the start menu folder and change it from there. You don't need a $10 stardock program. Shit icon just as an example. [IMG]http://i.cubeupload.com/btABTS.png[/IMG]
Not just changing the icon but the whole tile. At least that's what I want.
i'm just going to fill my start screen with live tiles so i don't really care about the icons
