I have got a SAMSUNG laptop contains Windows 7 OEM. I have got Windows 8 DVD and would like to know if I can do fresh/clean install of Windows 8 on my laptop ? That way Windows 7 will be completely gone.
Yes, you can, as long as the laptop has a DVD drive and the nessarry hardware?
Windows 8 Hardware requirements: 1 GHz processor or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2 2 GB RAM / 20 GB available hard disk space 1366 × 768 screen resolution DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM driver To use touch, you need a PC that supports multitouch
If it meets these then you can simply nuke the drive and re-install
(In case you don't know what i mean by "nuke the drive" i mean wipe it)
