Cheers, lets have a look... I'm getting an awesome 115kb/sec here :lol:

Edit - actually scratch that - it just kicked into gear. For those of you following my DSL issues thread, this is on the Snap connection. :p

Windows 8 is seriously starting to look like a downgrade from Windows 7. I don't want to waste my Data Cap on it, but I'll have a play with it if it comes out on a PCWorld magazine DVD, like they did with Win 7.

When you download the.exe and run the installer, a screenpops up showing the key.So, just run the installer and it should come to you.

Slow the burn speed down to minimum - may take a few minutes longer but lot less likely to get burn errors ;)

Yeah, Thinking of doing that. My USB's also a bit faulty but will give that another go.

I can't remember what is in the next screen, but for me it worked like THIS (http://www.techradar.com/news/software/operating-systems/dual-boot-windows-8-and-windows-7-side-by-side-1070657)
