This is obvious to many, but for the benefit of all. The Beta is imminent. May I suggest to everyone who intends to put it through its paces, that you get hold of an image program Acronis if you want to pay, but there are others, I have read good reports of Macrium. Make an image now of you present installation(s). If all goes wrong, particualrly during the early installation and customising of windows 8, it takes 10 minutes or so to replace your previous setup in its entirety. For better or worse, it will also save you and helpers, a great deal of time on the forums trying to put it all back together!
