Hi all! Sorry for posting such a stupid (?) question, but I've search everywhere, but cannot find a simple solution. My colleague has a mediacenter PC at home, With Windows 8 Consumer Preview (build 8250) on it. As you all know, the CP started shutting itself down in january, as the trial ended. He's been bugging me since then to fix it for him with a time stopper or equal. For some reason, his PC is that old, that it refused to install the Release Preview of Windows 8, and also RTM due to a limitation on the cpu (at least I think it was). If anyone is interested, I can get back with the exact error message that setup was nagging about. For some strange reasons, the Dev. Preview and Consumer Preview worked fine! Is there any way to register the consumer preview and "stop" this nonsense with shutting the machine down? I've used several "Loaders" in the passed, but not for the CP. And I can't seem to find anything for it either. Thanks in advance!
