Windows 8 usb installer disk inserted into laptopWindows 8 was a bit of a shock to most of us with regard to how it worked on desktops and laptops. While the mobile versions for phones and tablets were generally liked, the computer version was thankfully superseded by Windows 10 which brought back much of what was missed from Windows 7. It was released in 2012 and should be avoided in favour of the up-to-date Windows 10 if you can. We include it here to offer a means of installation for those PCs that cannot run Windows 10. Even so, this version is 8.1 which fixed some of the issues in the original 8.0 release.

This disk, like all our disks, is a USB disk and will enable you to install Windows 8 on any compatible PC that can boot from USB. If your PC is more than 10 years old you should check to see if it will boot from USB.
