The new Windows 8 is out.
Two ways of installing it on your PC.
Method 1 – ISO (used here):
Download the *.ISO file and use the Windows Store USB deployment tool.
Microsoft Windows Store ISO to bootable USB tool
Windows 8 Beta ISO Direct Download
Method 2 – Migration install
Download the file:
Windows 8 Beta Migration Installer
WRITE DOWN THE WINDOWS KEY, you will need it during install.
you find it on the ISO download link above
I have three computers – I set them to boot from USB
|Tablet PC – Toshiba Tecra M4 (6 year old)||Desktop Computer – Intel PC (4 year old)||Slate PC -Dell Duo (1 year old)|
Here is the generic install process which is similar on all three of my machines

Did you need to put a new hard drive in your Toshiba Tecra M4, with more storage to upgrade to Windows 8?
I inherited this Laptop from 25 yr old son that passed away 2 yrs ago. It runs real slow & I am unable to do anything to it because he has an administrative password on it that I don’t know & am unable to bypass. I’ve tried to guess it or bypass it, but it doesn’t allow me to. Do you have any sugestions? Angel

No need to Upgrade the harddrive, but if you do, a SSD drive would make it run a bit faster.

Password is removed if you reinstall windows
