    DVD install seems to work fine..


    Installing using the DVD went normally. It took a while after I got to the Desktop for the Start Button to become functional.

    I was a little disappointed to see they are still using the Microsoft standard size Recovery and EFI system partitions, 300 MB and 100 MB respectively. I was hoping they would change that to 450 MB and 260 MB respectively.

    I will be checking the USB install a little later.

    Same ways you would install Win 8 and 7 any bootable USB2, not sure about USB3 though.

    As was mentioned, there are several ways to install, depending on exactly what type of install you are doing.

    For anyone interested, I just installed again, using a USB this time and a Dual Boot setup using a partition on the same hard drive. It was interesting they placed the Windows Recovery Tools in the Factory Image Recovery partition. This install was an 8.0 install updated to 8.1 which had the additional 450 MB Recovery partition added. I suppose they will create a new partition if there is no OEM type Factory Image partition...

    I also notice is still reboots if you select the other OS, just like it did with Windows 7 and Windows 8. I guess there is no way around that requirement.

    I have not yet tried installing over the Windows 8 to 8.1 install, but that will probably be next.

    You could use a Virtual Box.

    EDIT: Link to download. https://www.virtualbox.org/

    If you have the .iso file, you can burn a DVD or configure a Flash Drive as the install media.

    If you mean you do not have the capability to use a DVD or Flash Drive, I have not done it that way so not really sure how to accomplish that type of install.

    That would be interesting I suppose it would have to be a Network install?
