  1. Hi folks. Hope we are all well ;) Right I bought (genuine) a windows media center key for windows 8 for a old HP system (that system is dead as in gone) but I do have a brand new system. (8.1 installed as default) Now I bought a media center key for my old system but is it possible to re-use that key for the new system? Just wondering

     

    Sorry for confusing everybody I forgot media player/center are different from each other ;)


  2. Here it is - http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2012/10/28/upgrading-to-windows-8-part-1.aspx

    Here is what each of these options mean:

    1 - Windows settings, personal files and apps: This setting captures all Windows settings, personal files (files held in the C:\Users directory) and any applications installed on the system. This is equivalent to performing an in-place-upgrade.

    2 - Just personal files: This setting migrates items located in the \Users directory. No applications or user settings are migrated.

    3 - Nothing: This setting does not migrate any data and is effectively a clean install of Windows. The old operating system moves to the Windows.old directory.

    You chose Option 2. And it APPEARS that a "Windows.old" fold would indeed been created, thus "filling" your HDD - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w8itprogeneral/thread/72bfccf8-c6c1-4bbe-88f8-284d9c6311d0/

    My current hard disk as it is yep. Basically what I saying I was going to backup my current computer hard disk and back it up to my personal hard disk but that hard disk is full so that's not a option for me currently so I did the next best thing ;)


  3. In that case, this

    I just done a er..............you know keep files but not programs type of install.
    makes absolutely no sense and anyone else stumbling onto this topic will have no clue as to Your Solution.

    Let me have a look and get back to you (I know what I mean) but I do get confused with my words

    I choosed the just keep personal files option if that helps


  4. keep files but not programs type of install
    OK, so basically it "blew up" because it didn't have enough HDD Space to "preserve" the PREVIOUS Windows Installation in case you want to "Uninstall The Upgrade", correct? If so, you are aware that you now have no means to revert to the Windows7, right?

    No no NOT my actual hard disk. My backup drive incase I wanted to backup all my files I got currently. I got no space available on my portable to back that up. I have lost the pervious windows 7 install though yeah


  5. :crazy:

    I fixed the post.

    I didn't see any errors in there and the only warning was complaining about not being able to set the language.

    So.... what was done different now that you did the install?

    I just done a er..............you know keep files but not programs type of install. It worked (I didn't want to format completely as I not got the necessceary means of backup) I do have a drive available but it's full to the brim quite literaly and it not as if I can get rid of anything on it because I may not get it back


  6. I must be mad wanting to go back to it :P But anyhoo:

    Bit of a weird one. Wondering if somebody could shed light. OK to I trying to upgrade windows 7 ultimate to windows 8 Pro (64 Bit and I have the 64 bit windows 8 Iso I made when I purchased the upgrade) So get past the first part's all fine everything seems OK it gets past the initial setup (finding devices getting system ready) Final reboot I think it is reboots into something (it's kind of like a BSOD) but can't tell as the screen goes messed up. All I see is blue screen with white lines what not and then windows reboots again and I get a windows installation has failed reverting back to previous version and wham back into windows 7. That don't seem right?

    My specs are (this machine)

  7. Whenever updates/apps are trying to install from the store? I am getting a this app wasn't installed view details and that tells me that:

    Something happened and this app couldn't be installed. Please try again. Error code: 0x8007064a


  8. there is an issue with the file C:\WINDOWS\fonts\cour.ttf

    Which AV tool do you run? Do a clean boot without any 3rd party tools/services and try to install the updates.

    I have the basic windows defender bundled with windows 8. Should I disable that, reboot and try again? (How do I clean boot)?

    EDIT: Partial success I think. That update I think has installed. Still having problems with the store error message though.

    Well you've got the link to the MSU there. Have you tried manually installing it?

    Tried that yeah and it still failed. Worrying that the store updates are failing on me too. That can't be a good thing.


  10. For the other thing:

  12. Sorry about a delay in responding. I'm going to have to come back to this a bit later today as I have some things to do but I obviously have some sort of problem somewhere here as updates in the store are not installing either for me. Getting a error message 0x8007064a (and that's free apps alone not updating) I'll have to have a glance at things later on and see what I can find. Hate computers when they decide to go wonky. ;) When I get in i'll have a look and see what I can figure out
