    Default Windows 8 installation error message

    Hi,

    I download the windows 8 CP OS file from website of microsoft. After I download, I tried to install. Every time i click the setup file in windows 8 after i extracted it to a folder i made on the desktop I get an error saying

    "C:\Users\Marquise\Desktop\Windows 8\Sources\SPWIZENG.DLL is either not deigned to run on windows or it contains an error.Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support"

    and after i click ok another error message pops up saying "The file 'autorun.dll' could not be loaded or is corrupt.Setup cannot continue.Error code is[0xC1]"

    So i tried deleting all the files and starting the download all over and i still got the same error message.

    Is something wrong with my PC?

    No, there is nothing wrong w/ your PC. But, it does sound like there is something wrong w/ how you are doing things. 1st of all, never mind the CP, now, since the Release Preview (Win8 Beta2) will be available May, 31st. Should be available in about 4 or 5 hrs from now.

    This is how to handle it:
    1. It must be installed on a spare computer OR as a dual-boot OR as a virtual machine. Must be done as a "Custom" (CLEAN) install. DO NOT install over an existing, current, non-beta OS, such as Windows7.

    2. Go to the Microsoft web site to download the Win8 RP .iso file.

    3. Burn that file to a DVD.

    4. Insert that burnt DVD into your optical drive.

    5. Screen will come up saying, "Hit any key to boot from CD"... hit any key.

    6. Select the drive where it is to be installed.

    In other words, you DO NOT have (say) Windows7 running & try to install Windows8 from w/in Windows7. That will not work & sounds like that is what you tried to do.

    Please, ask for more from or of me , if, you don't feel you fully understand what I've, already, said and I will be happy to explain further.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    '54',

    Where did you get the Windows 8 you are trying to install? The .iso needs to be burnt to a DVD. You install from that DVD.

    Cheers.

    Jena,

    Windows 8 RP is no longer available. It's availability ended Oct. 26, 2012 when Windows 8 GA was released.

    Cheers,
