Transformation Pack Notes
Modifying system files and changing system configuration may get reported as malware by some antivirus software.
You need to temporary turn-off antivirus software so that program won't be interfered during installation/uninstallation.
If you feel insecurity with this, you can consider Windows 8 UX Pack as it doesn't involve modifying system files.

I can't believe how much of a fucking asshole I was. I am never going to use a transformation pack again. Next time I want a new software, I'll take it up the ass and go out and by the OFFICIAL one. Tell me how I can uninstall this back to my original and comfortable Windows Se7en format.

Working Properly! but i have a question.. what does the charm do? coz i doesnt change anything.. :/ but it is perfect :D
N-Studios-2 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I have this, but I have a problem with it. When I install it, the Start Orb fails to change from the default Windows 7 Orb to the Windows 8 Orb in this pack. That, and the RocketDock part of the pack doesn't work properly. I know it should have the blue Windows 8 logo in the middle of it, but it just isn't there and RocketDock just shows all of my windows instead. And RocketDock looks much wider than if it worked properly.

I am about to install it on Windows 7 x64. I use HP ProtectTools to login using fingerprints, I hope I don't end up with a BlueScreen like I did in Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which I had to remove due to this issue :)

Microsoft is making a buzz in the computer world with its announcement of the new Windows 8.. Windows 8 transformation pack also includes the logon screen and auto-repair using the smart system files updates.. Aside from this, users can easily configure their settings with the help of Metro UI design, in which the Windows 8 is known for.. Windows 8 Transfer

Any issues with Windows 7 64Bit version (which I am using?) ?

I'm using Windows 7 x64 and no issue so far.
owenfitz2 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012
great theme. just one problem. every time i restart it asks me to restart to finish installation again, and the side bar doesn't work. Before you ask i did install the side bar. my guess is that it is trying to install the side bar but can't for some reason. what should i do.
owenfitz2 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
is newgen that bar on the right, because that is what i meant by sidebar. also i am running windows 7. and about the restart,
1. i restart
2. i login
3. it asks for administrative password
4. the box that says please restart to finish installation pops up
5. i hit ok and it repeats.
6. i get bored after 5 times and hit cancel
windowsx Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Windows 8 Transformation Pack doesn't come with Sidebar and Newgen (Metro Start) may have errors in Windows XP. I'm not sure about restart though. Did it ask you for system files update or something too?
owenfitz2 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012
sorry about tripple post my computer is stupid and refused to show any of them until i had typed it three times. pleas disregard the first two.
