    Hi all,


    I would like to install windows 8 release preview and I have a problem of installing. When I install, it said "A media driver your computer needs is missing", cant install the OS.

    What media driver its talking? How can I get that?

    Did you download the ISO file from an approved site? Did you burn the ISO file to a DVD using a slow burn (4X max burn)? Did you boot to the DVD and choose Custom (Clean) install to attempt your installation? These are the approved methods to install Win 8.

    Did you check the Win 8 RP Compatibility Center prior to attempting your installation.

    It is possible that the .ISO image of Windows 8 Release Preview is corrupt. You need to re-download the file.
