I just bumped into this offer and had to pass it on.

Windows 8: Installation Flowchart (5339085) - $29.00 hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
I can hardly stop laughing. Any Operating system that needs a flowchart to install has obviously passed the event horizon of the black hole that swallows wacky software.

OK, but using a pictorial sequence (flowchart) to show the how-to is an OK method
--unfortunately many people neither know nor care how-to (install an OS): they may not realize they need to partition and format the hard drive or even how to select a hard drive
    Having bought a notebook or desktop or tablet with a pre-installed OS already running
    --usually windows OS (some version)

A description in language of the steps needed, eg step 1., step 2. and so on could also work, except for the same reason
--many people don't/can't be bothered to read instructions
    It's the same deal-breaker, when trying to assemble furniture or any other device or forgetting to install the batteries
    RTFM is the UNIX/Linux refrain sometimes for these inevitable slackers..
    --and that is a legitimate complaint, people should read the or install instructions if they want to have a pleasant experience
    If you know the steps needed, there aren't many surprises; with a little research..
