[Tutorial] How To Install Windows 8 Pro For Free (100% working)

Disclaimer: First of all,this is only recommended for people who want try Windows 8 for before actually buying it.We call know that Windows 8 has some big issues with what developers can use on it and where they can use it i.e. dev. software only runs on x64.So,people should check out exactly what they want before they purchase it.That’s what we think..Please don not pirate Microsoft software just to save money.Microsoft has worked really hard on this project so respect that and use original software.

With that out of the way,let’s dig into the tutorial part of this article!

We’ve been using Windows 8 for quite some now and I must say,atleast ‘I’ and impressed.Yes,’impressed’ but not ‘blown away’.
There is no doubt that Windows 8 is gonna make a good tablet OS but that’s not what Microsoft is know for right? They’re known for their desktop OS i.e Windows.Now,agreed that they are adapting and trying to make a mark in this tablet and smartphone hungry world but to be honest,I loved Windows 7 and am a little disappointed that Windows 8 isn’t that big an upgrade (keeping only PCs in mind).

But hey! that still does not mean I’m not gonna install it? And I’m sure you wanna install it too.So,let’s get started with the things you’ll need while and before installing:

  • A compatible system (check the requirements here)
  • Windows 8 .iso file (only download the one you want)
  • Windows 8 Activator (will be used in the end) -> Download this and keep it ready on another USB or partition on your computer.
  • uTorrent (it’s used to download torrent files.You can use any other torrent client as well.) ->
  • WinRar (to unarchive the .tgz activator file) -> Download this on Windows 8 using IE.
  • A 4 GB or more USB drive or a single-layered DVD (I suggest using a DVD)
  • Basic knowledge of how one boots into a USB/DVD via your BIOS
  • 1-2 hours and loads of  patience

Once that’s sorted out,just follow along.

Installation

  1. Backup your data on your current OS.
  2. Use this tutorial to make a bootable USB/DVD for Windows 8 using the .iso you downloaded earlier.
  3. Insert the USB/DVD and reboot your system.
  4. Enter your BIOS settings/boot menu(i suggest getting into your boot menu).Since every BIOS has a different method of doing so,you can look up the hotkey for your specific BIOS/boot menu in the motherboard/laptop’s manual or use Google.Once,you are into your BIOS/boot menu,select USB for your USB drive or select DVD-ROM if you’re using a DVD.
  5. Once you do that,the Windows 8 installation will start and it’ll ask you for a CD key.Use this XKY4K-2NRWR-8F6P2-448RF-CRYQH. After that just follow installation wizard and make sue you read everything properly while doing so.Once,you’re at the ‘Windows update’ section,turn them OFF completely to avoid any issues later on.Also,make sure you select the right partition to install Windows 8 on to avoid any data loss.
  6. When the wizard finishes installing,it’ll reboot your system and boot it up into the Windows 8 setup wizard where it’ll ask for you to setup accounts and what not.It is pretty self-explanatory so you shouldn’t have any problem there.If you do,you can always contact us or comment below.
  7. After you’ve gone through with the account setup,your computer should restart and boot back into Windows 8.

Now,right now you’ll have a working Windows 8 OS but it’ll not be activated i.e. you wont be able to access the personalization section and also wont be able to install Microsoft Office 13.To rectify that,follow the instructions below or feel free to close your browser and enjoy Windows 8.But,why would anyone do that right?

Activation

  1. Open up the Activator you downloaded earlier using WinRar and extract it on your desktop.
  2. In the extracted files,run ‘Windows 8 Pro Final Activator.exe’ as admin and let it do it’s thing.
  3. Once that’t done,reboot your system.
  4. That’s it! Your Windows 8 copy should be activated and fully functional.

For Dual Booting with any other version of Windows

The procedure remains the same – Just follow the same instructions and the Windows 8 bootloader will handle the rest.

[Tutorial] How To Make A Gold Card With Any Micro SD Card

I. Requirements before you begin

1) An SD card (Any brand)

4 (a )Open up the Gold Card creator that you downloaded earlier and Click on ‘Get CID’ (At this moment,your SD Card must appear in My computers as a removable disk.That’s the only way this will work.).Also,if the CID doesn’t appear in your first attempt,select ‘MMC0’ and try again.

4 (b) Then,once you have the CID,go to the lick provided and download for goldcard.img and save it wherever you want to (On your desktop preferably).

adb devicesThen type:

adb shell
cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid

(There is no spaces in this line EXCEPT right after the word cat in the beginning, make sure to put that space in).

5. A code will display, write the code down (MAKE SURE TO WRITE IT DOWN EXACTLY!)

6. Now with the code written down, simply write it backwards (it must be reversed, so if the code is 123456789, slowly write it backwards and make sure not to make a mistake so it becomes 987654321 then continue to the next step).

7. Now, on your computer, goto http://psas.revskills.de/?q=goldcard and enter your email in the appropriate field and for CID enter the reversed CID you just copied down BUT REPLACE THE FIRST 2 DIGITS WITH 2 ZEROS!

Reported Issues:

Issue: I get no such directory or file when I type:

cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid

Solution: Try to type this instead (replace the 1′s after mmc with zeros):

cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc0/mmc0:*/cid

Solution:

“Plug your phone into your computer with the going to be gold card
Go to my computer
Make sure you mount your phone to your computer
Right click after mounted FORMAT on your drive NOT IN THE SETTINGS>FORMAT MODE (trust me)
dont do quick format let it run its course
After it has completed formatting come back to the steps starting at step number 4.”

Top 5 Music Apps for iOS

These days,entertainment is always portable,thanks to the awe-inspiring,mind-boggling creations like Apple’s iDevices.Games,news,movies,TV shows,name it and it’s there.Music creation,however,is something that’s stereotypically associated with music studios and tedious work,and it’s hard to believe something like that can be done easily.

Say,is there ANYTHING Apple Inc. has failed to do?

Today,I’ll be giving you an insight on how you can unleash your musical side with NOTHING MORE than your iDevice (and a bit of money,if it’s not jailbroken :P )

Let’s start with something called Loopy. This app is one smooth thing,easy enough to be operated by a 5-year old,and efficient enough to make killer beats.The UI is a treat to the eyes and fingers,and the features make it a delight to use.Simple,press the circle,record your own beats,fool around and you’ve got something rolling for yourself.Used by professionals like Dub FX the beatboxer,I’d highly recommend this one.$2.99 for iPod Touch and iPhone,$7.99 for iPad(jailbreak won’t work,it’ll show up as pirated).Check Dub FX’s encounter with Loopy here.

Next on the list,of course,is Apple’s GarageBand. Another bloody cool thing we have here.Here,you get to choose from a variety of instruments and use up to eight tracks to create your own music.Or plug your guitar in and jam away.Smooth operation,takes a little time to get used to it,but it’s all easy,and lots of fun.All for $4.99,though a jailbreak should fix that . Demo can be seen here.

Then there’s Looptastic,FLStudio,iDubstep,AudioStudio,Beatmaker,Noise.io and a select few which work similarly and are as close as you can get to a music studio.

You’ve successfully been guided in the right direction.The choice is all up to your convenience.Feel free to let us know about your experiences and queries.

Now if you’ll excuse me,I have some beatboxing to do and more beats to record on my iPod B)
