I have been reading your thread and for a while there I felt bad to see that you were basically carrying on in this thread as a sole participant. ... blah blah blah blah blah .... Windows 8 really isn't a bad operating system when it is installed on a laptop that has a touch screen ability. You do the same thing with smart phones and that has been accepted as a way to do things on a small screen.

MrBruce: Are you serious? I mean, on so many levels, are you... serious? Sounds to me like you have not read this thread at all. You have simply posted a pre-set response.... Please stop posting this nonsense, for your own sake... stop.

I'm going to jump in here to beat a dead horse. To the OP- Guided Partition Table is the replacement for the current partition setup, you can have many primary partitions instead of just 3, it handles disks larger than 3TB, and has security features. Secure boot is a system that keeps people from sticking in a USB stick or CD and bypassing your system to crack the password or do other damage to the system. Both are great security features, and no problem to deal with if you know what you are doing. The fact that you couldn't jump into the system without help proves they work. The trouble you had was from doing things BEFORE you got the information. These are enhancements for usability and security, and they are greatly needed. As far as Windows 8 goes, you should have had your friend stick with it. It's faster, more secure, contains built in antivirus, and has lots of nice features. Taking 10 minutes to learn what the start screen is and how to navigate would have sorted the whole thing easily. As a computer technician and a salesperson, I show people how to use Win 8 all the time, and most of them have no trouble after a short tutorial. Microsoft SHOULD have included that tutorial on startup, but either way it's not complicated. Windows 8 is Windows 7 with a host of improvements and a new start menu paradigm, PLUS a store and some downloadable apps coded in HTML5. There is NO MINUS. If your friend wanted the old familiar look and feel, just go to Stardock.com and purchase Start8. It's $4.99, and will put the start menu and it's options right back where she was used to them, and makes the start screen go away unless you click it's icon. Easy peasy. People who hate Win 8 are mostly not using it. They see it, assume everything is different, and say it sucks. I have been using it at home and work for over a year and a half and it's been great. Wouldn't give it up for anything. I use it on both touch and with a mouse and keyboard, and honestly, the mouse and keyboard works better than touch does. Look, Windows 7 was Vista with some small tweaks. What frustrated most people when Vista launched was lack of drivers. It wasn't a problem after a year or so, and since 7 is basically Vista there were lots of drivers ready for it when it launched. Windows 8 is windows 7 with some small tweaks and and a Start Screen instead of a menu. NOT THAT COMPLICATED PEOPLE.
