    I have tried to install Win8-7955 on my desktop without success for 3 times. Every time after installing updates and rebooting, the PC just hung there and freezing, it won't go any further to complete the setup. I don't have this kind of problem with Win8-7850 setup.
    Does anyone know how to fix this? Do I need to modify the Win8-7955 ISO (add $OEM$, replace store, tokens folders...) in order to install it?
    Please advise, thanks in advance.

    There were the updates in the setup DVD just before completing, not the MS Windows update.

    I just mounted the ISO on Daemonds in win7 and there it goes. Sometimes burning a DVD is a real pain.

    Do you setup Daemonds and install it from Win7?

    Yes, once mounted it immediately ask if you want to run set-up, then everything goes smoothly. After win8 setup had expanded about 27% of the files, it reboots and leaves win7 behind, that's it.

    How do I get those 2 system screens? Do I need to download and install the software? Do you have the link?

    Can anyone help? I can't install at all. It gets to "expanding windows files" and just hangs at 0%.

    I was running 7850 just fine (well, it installed fine, but ran really slow). I'm installing it directly on 50gb partition, but it's just not working..

    EDIT: After trying again around 5 more times, it's finally installed. Time to unlock dome features!

    Do you have a dualcore CPU or better? It's seems that has an impact on virtual computers.

    Really? So does this mean that I would have to either find a way unlock the hardware virtualization or partition my actual hard drive to use it?

    Thanks

    Yes 7850 works on "every" computer (real and virtual) but 7955 demands a dual core CPU or better. And as I can see from your specs, you don't have a dual core. (From the specs online, you have a Intel Celeron Processor M530, 1.73 GHz with one core).
    So I don't think you can install 7955, have not seen any hacks that make you install 7955 on a single core computer (real or virtual)
