下載 Windows 8 Consumer Preview

大家或許已經試過較早前的Windows 8 Technical Preview,但最新的Consumer Preview已經推出,可以下載。今次已經有很大的不同,故此有興趣的也可以去試。用家下載時會是一個EXE檔案,其後可按指示製作可啟動的光碟或手指,安裝頗方便。


Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup will check to see if your PC can run Windows 8 Consumer Preview and select the right download. Setup also features a compatibility report and upgrade assistance. Built-in tools for creating an ISO or bootable flash drive are available for some previous versions of Windows (excluding Windows XP and earlier). You can find system requirements and additional information in the FAQ and in the links on this page.

Note before you download: Windows 8 Consumer Preview is prerelease software that may be substantially modified before it’s commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here. Some product features and functionality may require additional hardware or software. If you decide to go back to your previous operating system, you'll need to reinstall it from the recovery or installation media that came with your PC.

ISO images
