Ok, so's I buy mesel' a new pooter - one of them all-in-ones. I know, I know, but it's soooo compact, it's a delight. And it was a steal. A Packard Bell L5800, i3, 23" touchscreen (the novelty of that wore off in less than one day...) and comes with Win 7 (looks good at first play) and even Office 2010 - both gen with product codes. 2nd-hand, but immaculate. And built-in Freeview with a small remote control. £195. Ok, I also got a (genuine) Win 8 upgrade DVD (i know, I know again...), as I wanted to see what the latest OS is like, and since I know have 'the touch'. Except the b* won't install. Goes through it all, accepts code, does everything, goes for a reboot, and comes back with 'Windows 8 installation unsuccessful, reverting back to previous version', with - typically - no explanation of why. Info on t'net (this ain't an uncommon situation...) suggests all sorts like uninstalling all anti-virus stuff, etc, and making sure all drivers are up to date. I wonder if a factory restore is an easier option? I don't have any files or photos or anything that I need to save. But, what about the software - will I need to reinstall Win7 and Office (and the other nice goodies such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel draw X5 and stuff? Or even the Packard Bell's own stuff? Ta muchly.
