    You copied the Win8 DVD to a USB flash disk?

    Is this machine good for W8? If cpu does not accept 8, it won't install even coming from a stick or wherever.

    Just Upgrade inside Windows, in case you already have XP/VISTA/7 installed.

    found problems exactly with installing inside. Case was cpu which didn't accept 8. Did this with CP and RP version and went fine but when doing it finally with RTM > no way. Please find out and report

    You will need to check if your processor supports PAE, NX and SSE2 at least. To check it, follow these steps:

    Download CoreInfo tool from Sysinternals. (Direct download link here)
    Extract the zip file and open Coreinfo.exe through command prompt. If you double click the executable file, it will open and disappear. So you will need to open command prompt and run the exe file from there. An easy way to open the file in command prompt is to first open the command prompt, drag and drop the file to the command prompt window and hit enter.
    This will open a list of features supported by your CPU. You will need to find these three features PAE, NX and SSE2 and make sure they are supported.
    Checking for compatible processor features for Windows 8 installation
    The star (*) in front of each feature in the list will show that your processor supports these features and Windows 8 can be installed on your PC.
    technize.net/how-to-check-if-your-processor-supports-pae-nx-and-sse2-for-windows-8-installation/

    By the way, the easiest way to make sure that Windows 8 RTM will work is to use the upgrade assistant as suggested by Shenj.

    that won't work since win 7 is 32bit and win 8 64bit

    first formatted pd... then copied whole win 8 setup files... then using cmd entered boot directory of win 8 and using command below added bootsector to pd
    Code:
    bootsect.exe /nt60 G:
    G: was the drive letter

    Which method you use to create bootable PD? Either use manual command line method or tool mentioned above by ace2.

    I just tried using upgrade assistant and it shows a few apps to be incompatible... but these apps have nothing to do with drivers and other windows core requirements

    Why are you even trying to put 64bit W8 on it, i doubt that notebook does even have more than 4GB RAM, if it doesnt have more than 4.. go straight with 32bit, there is just no point in 64bit with 4gb ram, even x86 can just handle it fine, x64bit will only need a bit more resources, but in the end will not improve performance
