I have an HP running windows 7 x64bit I purchased the CD/DVD of windows 8pro I tried running from the disk everything appears to go well until I get to where it asks for my email address I can get all the letters in but when I type the @ all I get is " inverted commas so I skip that intending to do it later but after windows 8 is fully installed I have no internet connection. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.Frown
