Q: Does this work for Windows 10?
A: No. It does not. You will either have to wait for a patch that does work or try it with Windows 8

Q: I get the error “Patch location not found”, how do I resolve this?
A: As “Microlag Tech” pointed out in the comments, this is because there was a update for Windows 8.1 which broke this patch. The solution: use a older version of Windows 8(.1)

Q: I get a BSOD (blue screen of death) when I try booting Windows 8, how can I fix this?
A: First of all, make sure you followed the steps in the video exactly. If it still does not work, your computer may not be compatible. Some PCs or laptops simply are not able to run Windows 8, nothing I can do about that. Sorry.

Q: Can I remove my previous operating system after the installation of Windows 8(.1)?
A: Yes, simply by deleting the old Windows 7 partition, after that, you can reformat the partition and use it again.
