    Hi All,


    I was excited when Win8 RP was released a couple of days ago, and I did download the official http link from microsoft. After making the ISO USB ootable, I began to install on my Desktop and Laptop. After all the initial steps went well, I formatted the C drive and at copying the files
    the installation got stuck at 5% with the below shown Error. I have re-downloaded the ISO from microsoft, but the same problem persists. While downloading with IDM, there were a couple of power cuts and the download was resumed. This happened on both attempts.
    Please find me a solution, and help me in installing the Win8 RP ASAP- Thanks

    first off all you need to check if the checksum of your download matches the one found at the DL page

    I assume you haven't tried burning the ISO to a DVD and install with that?
    Sometimes it's just easier installing with a disc instead of a USB device.

    I already think he have tried with that, it sounds like it anyway.

    I think a good ol' DVD will make the trick. I burned my ISO to a DVD and it installed perfectly.
    I think it's a bigger chance for things to get corrupted with USB devices, but that's just me talking.

    I notice 4 errors again. I saw that too, using the compat-installer method.


    Are you using activation perhaps?

    Just upgrade CPU and leave the last decade behind you. Pentium 4 isn't much use to anyone these days when applications and programs become more and more CPU hungry.
    Go with a nice Sandy or Ivy Bridge and enjoy the show.

    2012, it's time to bury that old P4 son!

    Got an old CPU without NX bit, changing nx to AlwaysOff in the BCD for windows setup gets me to the same error. Has anyone discovered any workarounds for getting Windows 8 working on an old CPU? (In my case, Athlon XP 2500+, for which Windows 7 runs fine)

    I tried to run setup inside windows, but it wont let you continue without a nx bit CPU. However, the WinPE installer in sources/setup.exe doesn't check this and lets you go. On the first reboot, when "Windows Setup" is added to the bootloader, is where I'm getting stuck on error 0x0000005D.

    (When I try to boot from the DVD, it fails with error 5, but this is because of an issue with older MSI and ASrock motherboards and exists in Windows 7. The trick to launch setup from the vista bootloader or with UBCD no longer works, but I can get into a previous windows install and launch sources\setup.exe)
