Win8 Consumer Preview - upgrade path for Samsung tablets from BUILD conference? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Win 8 consumer preview version comes out tomorrow (Feb 29).  Any news yet on what the upgrade path is for the Samsung tablets that we got at the BUILD conference?

    Wondering if it will show up as a Windows Update (not holding my breath) or a manual wipe and reinstall, or ???

  • Windows Update is not used to upgrade Windows to a newer version.

    In place upgrades with prerelease versions are not supported. To install the Windows 8 Consumer Preview you will have to download the ISO and completely reinstall Windows, then reinstall all your programs.

    Before reinstalling Windows make sure to backup your personal files.
