Windows 8 Installation problem

I have a weird problem with windows 8 Installation, as soon as I insert the installation disk and start the installation after some time I am dragged back to windows 7 and it windows 8 won?t get install. I don?t know if there is something wrong with the installation disk I have bought or there is something wrong with my system. Is there anyone who can help me out installing windows 8 successfully????

Re: Windows 8 Installation problem

I want to know if you have run windows 8 Upgrade Assistant before installing it on your system?? It does not run Upgrade Assistant first and check out if your system is capable of handling windows 8 or not. If that?s not an issue then make sure that your current windows is having antivirus and security feature disabled. They are likely to interfere with the installation process and it is recommended to disable them while upgrading windows.

Re: Windows 8 Installation problem

I don?t have any other system currently for testing the disk. I will ask some of my friend to test out the installation disk for me this weekend . While looking after a fix for this issue I came across many people who had installation problems. Most of them were having it while upgrading to windows 8 from windows 7, I have chatted with some of them and they suggested me to make clean installation of windows 8 rather than upgrading. So I?ll do that and will let you know if I get success in making a clean installation.
