[ Edited ]



I would like to install the Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my ThinkPad Z60m ..


According to Microsoft, the minimum specs are:


  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster

  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)

  • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

  • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher


Any ideas ?? Is this laptop able to run the beta??

The laptop can be update to Windows 8 Consumer preview as meet the configuration.


Kindly create the recovery disc so if you want to roll back to Windows 7 it can be done.
