"Low disk space" error while installing Windows 8

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have a problem with installation of Windows 8. When I want to install this on 100 GB partition it says that I can't install WDP, because "you have not enough space on disk to install". What can I do?

  • It's empty partition and I was trying to install via USB.

  • try formatting the partition to NTFS before installation.

  • I was trying this, but now I will try with installing it via VirtualBox and adding to bootmenu via EasyBCD.

  • EasyBCD does not support windows8 yet! but an affiliate with them told me that they are working on it.

  • But it works! Now I'm using Windows 8 from real partition, but earlier I was using it from virtual disk.

  • Did you get Windows Developer Preview installed or do you still need assistance?

    Are you getting any other errors?
