I have a W510 with the touchscreen option that I've been trying to install Win8 x64 Release Preview on and keep getting an error toward the end of the install saying it can't find some missing files (it doesn't say which ones).

I've tried redoing the download and re-burning the DVD but always get the same error.

Has anyone installed the Win8 Release Preview on a W510 yet? Any ideas of why it is giving this error? Thanks in advance for any help!

W520 4276-37U, W520 4282-A61, and X61T 7769-A67 ThinkPads; D20 4155-CTO ThinkStations; plus lots of ThinkCentres

I dunno....only guess I have would be to try a very slow burn speed for the DVD. Seems like I remember some such error a while back, and burning the disk at 2X solved the problem for me. Might apply here, might not...
