Windows 8 beta installs in 8 minutes on PC with 24GB DDR3

Posted on Friday, March 04 2011 @ 16:05:52 CET by


Neowin found a handful of leaked screenshots of Windows 8 at a Chinese tech site. The pre-release version of the next edition of Windows reveals some new features like an integrated app store and the ability to log in using Windows Live ID. Additionally, Windows 8 offers a factory restore feature that reportedly returns the PC to its factory state in under 2 minutes and the installation of the OS itself took as little as 8 minutes on a system with eight-core processor and 24GB DDR3.
A Chinese site, Win7china, (via windows8beta.com) has landed new information about what Microsoft will be including in the next major Windows release. The site states that Windows 8 will have a factory restore feature that will return the computer to its factory state in under 2 minutes and that the installation time of Windows 8 M3 took 8 minutes to install. This install time is approximately 2.5 times faster than Windows 7.

The factory restore feature will not require a disk to be inserted to accomplish this task and the required hard disk space to do this is said to be minimal.
