I am unable to install Windows 8

How are you all,

My computer currently runs on a 64 bit Windows XP which has served me well. I recently decided to install Windows 8 with 32bit. However, when I try to install it, the above error message appears.

Why is that happening?

 

 

This installation disk isn’t compatible with your version of Windows. To upgrade, you need the correct installation disk.

For more information, check your computer’s system information. To install a new copy of Windows, restart (boot) your computer using the installation disk, and then select Custom (advanced).

Many thanks.

Jadan,

Installing the Windows 8 32-bit demo into your windows xp 64-bit using the upgrade option will not work initially because you only have the beta version of Windows 8 and the upgrade binaries are not yet included or activated in the demo.

It would be beneficial for you if you could install your Windows 8 demo into a different hdd with your original hdd disengaged to prevent the change to your XP bootup.

After successful installation of your Windows 8 into your test drive will you then reconnect your Windows XP drive to be opened and accessed by the new OS.

Happy Computing.

This type of error is the indication of the missing files. Simply I wants to say that whatever disk you are use for the windows is not possess a good quality and that disk may have a corrupted files.

Firstly you should change your that disk a purchase a new one but keep in mind that disk a pure one having all files. Then you can check your computer configuration and then match those with the requirements of the windows and then install that one it really works.

If you have a downloaded setup then installs again that setup from a new website.

Thanks.
