Yes.

Change the bios boot order to boot from the 8.1 CD first.

Reboot & when you get to the partition section, delete ALL partitions & format to NTFS.

Note that you always need to meet more than the MS stated minimum requirements or the system will crawl. They just mean it will run Windows, not how well.

Give us the model number of your computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It's also a good idea to see if the PB support page for your model shows windows 8 drivers.
