Can you upgrade directly from Vista to Windows Developer Preview?


  • For the Windows 8 Developer Preview you need to do a clean install.

    For the final release version - we have to wait and see.



    You should install it on a separate partition.

    The Windows Developer Preview is a pre-beta version of Windows 8 for developers. These downloads include prerelease software that may change without notice. The software is provided as is, and you bear the risk of using it. It may not be stable, operate correctly or work the way the final version of the software will. It should not be used in a production environment.

    Notes about installing the Windows Developer Preview
    You can't uninstall the Windows Developer Preview. To reinstall your previous operating system, you must have restore or installation media.
