Install Windows 8 via USB on Various Devices

With Microsoft’s Windows 8 right around the corner, it’s only natural that  interest is kicked into high gear. Two members of the XDA community, Recognized Developer Nullstring and Senior Member lseidman, have posted guides to help users install the latest version of Windows 8 onto their devices via a USB drive.

Nullstring posted a video guide that walks users through the process on a PC / laptop, as well as allowing for the OS to be dual booted along side Windows 7. Be warned the video is 46 minutes long and goes as far as analyzing boot speeds and setting up Administrator mode. XDA Senior Member lseidman has taken this entire process a step further and has provided an in-depth guide to installing either the 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows 8 on tablets and slates via USB drive as well. He too provides a video overview of the process, however, it currently only covers up to the point where the boot ISO is created.

Both of these guides are sure to be helpful to users looking to load Windows 8 on their respective devices, but who haven’t done so yet. So head over to Nullstring’s thread or Lseidman’s thread. Let the development commence.
