Time required to install Windows 8 in PC in not the same for all machine. It depends on the machine’s configuration.
The minimum system requirements of windows 8 is :
- Processor : 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
- Memory : 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
- Hard Disk space : Minimum of 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
- DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
The installation time for my machine was nearly 30 minutes.
I have installed it in a separate partition. Initially that drive was empty. So no extra time has been taken for formatting the installation directory.
My computer’s configuration is:
Processor : Dual core i5 processor, Memory :
4 GB RAM,Graphics Memory
1 GB ATI RADEON HD Graphics card.
Installation time may be different for machines with different configuration.
