I. Condition of Computer Configuration
Before installing WINDOWS8, you should first understand the basic conditions that the computer system should have. According to Microsoft's official proposal configuration, the hardware requirements of the WINDOWS8 system mainly have the following two standards.
1, Processor: 1GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor.
2, Memory: 1GB and above (32-bit) or 2GB and on (64-bit).
3, Video card: Support DirectX 9 and memory capacity of 128MB.
4. Hard disk space: an NTFS partition with at least 16GB (32-bit) or 20GB (64-bit) free space.
5, Monitor: Resolution at least 1024*768 pixels, below the resolution will not display part of the function.
In fact, these requirements are not very high, even a few years ago, the old machine can meet demand. But this is only the minimum standard of WINDOWS8, if you want to run smoothly and open special effects, then it is best to adopt a higher configuration of the computer, or you will find that Windows8 effect is not as good as expected.
Second, the hard disk system requirements
After the hardware requirements are met, the installation Windows8 is required for the software, especially the hard disk system.
1, the installation of WINDOWS8 system of hard disk partitions must be in the NTFS structure, otherwise the installation process will appear error prompts and can not be installed properly.
2, because the WINDOWS8 system for hard disk free space requirements are relatively high, so the hard disk used to install the WINDOWS8 system must ensure that at least 16GB, it is best to provide 40GB free space for the system to install the partition for use.
