Reminder Need Critical

#1
No Beta OS should ever be installed, except as, follows:

1. On a spare machine
2. Virtually
3. As a dual-boot.
4. Run from a USB stick


Never as an Upgrade or replacement to an existing, current, non-beta OS. Never on a production machine.
Nor, BTW, can one move from 1 Beta of an OS to the next or from Beta to RTM, etc... from Build to Build or stage to stage, except by clean installs.

Programs & software must be installed, after a fresh OS install.

Cheers,
Drew

Drew, you forgot:

4. From a USB stick :redface:

That's how I run Windows 8 CP on my laptop.

Except, was listing how to install not, from what sources.

No, no Drew, you are getting this wrong. Not install but Run. See my little tutorial here: https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=475a0a48ca6d4035&resid=475A0A48CA6D4035!1776&parid=root

Open it in a browser that can read PDFs. Then you do not have to download the little file.

Oh, right, ok. Caught what you're meaning, now. Amended the OP accordingly. Thanks.

That stick I chose works really well. I think it is faster than when you install it on a HDD, but not as fast as my system in Virtual box on the SSD. Boot time is 36 seconds and shutdown 14 seconds (as to Event Viewer).

Mostly cus of the nature of SSDs. May change when not bare-bones OS but, still, excellent.
