Default Re: Installing Windows 8

Two pretty simple options are presented on the Personalize screen: one for color you like and another for PC name.

The color you choose helps shape the display on your future Windows 8 Start Screen, and in some other areas of Windows 8. This is easily changed later from the Start screen area of PC settings so don't get too caught up on this one.

The PC name is just a friendly phrase for hostname, the name that identifies this computer on your network. Something identifiable is always good, like timswin8tablet or pcroom204... you get the idea.

Touch or click Next when complete.

On the next screen (not shown), choose from the list of available wireless networks that Windows 8 sees at the moment.

Once chosen, enter the password if the network is encrypted and requires one.

Click or touch Next to continue.

Note: You will not see this step if your computer does not have wireless network capabilities or if Windows 8 does not have an included driver for the wireless hardware and so wasn't able to enable that device. Don't worry if the latter is the case - you can install the correct wireless driver for Windows 8 after the clean install is complete.

On the Settings screen, you have the option of accepting Microsoft's recommended default settings for Windows 8, which are detailed on screen, or customizing them to your preferences.

For the most part, I see no problem accepting the express settings.

Click or touch Use express settings to continue.

Note: If you'd like to explore your options, you can click Customize and walk through a series of additional screens with settings for network sharing, Windows Update, automatic feedback to Microsoft, and more.

The next screen is the Sign in to your PC step.

You have two pretty big options here for how to sign in with Windows 8:

Sign in with your Microsoft account

If you already have an email associated with a major Microsoft service then you can use that here. If you don't, that's OK, enter any email address and Microsoft will create an account for you based on that email address.

The advantage of using a Microsoft account is that you can easily use the Windows Store, you can sync major settings between multiple Windows 8 computers, and more.

Sign in with a Local account

This is the standard way that previous versions of Windows, like Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP worked.

Your account is only stored locally on this Windows 8 computer. Please note though that you'll still need to create a, or use your current, Microsoft account some time in the future if you plan on using the Windows Store to download apps.

My recommendation is to use your existing Microsoft account or create a new one.

Assuming you decide to do that, enter your email address and then click or press Next.

The next few screens (not shown) will verify your account, ask for your password, and may ask for a telephone number to help with password recovery. If you're setting up a Microsoft account for the first time, you may see some other screens as well.

Even though you may have chosen to create, or use your current, Microsoft account, there is still a local account created to help facilitate that.

This is what Windows 8 is doing while the Creating your account message is on screen.

Remember all of those personalization and other settings you just made? Windows 8 is now committing those to your user account it just created.

Just wait during this short phase.

Your Windows 8 clean install is almost done... just a few more steps.

Default Re: Installing Windows 8

Next you'll sit through a long series of screens, the first several of which explain how to work with the Windows 8 interface.

When that's over, you'll see a large message in the middle of the screen that says We're getting your PC ready with some text at the bottom that says This will take a few minutes. The background will continually change colors as this progresses.

Once you see the message change to Installing apps then you know your Windows 8 clean install is almost over.

This whole series of screen changes and message should only take a few minutes.
