Step 4: Windows 8 CP Installation Steps

Here's a quick look at the Windows 8 installation screens and some tips on what settings to turn off. First, the Windows 8 installation screen, gone are the 'windows'. :)

Next, enter a PC name.

Choose 'Customize' to maintain control over settings which may affect your privacy.

The first 'Settings' screen has a few options enabled that are better disabled in a test computer system. Feel free to adjust these settings as you see fit, the PCSTATS recommended options are noted on the next screen shot.

PCSTATS recommends DISABLING 1) Windows Update, 2) IE SmartScreen Filter to check URLs and 3) IE SmartScreen Filter to check files and apps...

Enter your Hotmail email address.

In Settings page two PCSTATS recommends DISABLING everything. Turning off these options maintains stricter privacy control.

On Settings page three, DISABLE the 2nd, 4th and 5th options.

That's it, Windows 8 Consumer Preview will finalize the installation and restart itself.

After the installation completes, navigate to the Windows 8 Consumer Preview desktop.
