Gilco2:sidefx: Can the download upgrade version be used to do a clean reinstall from scratch (without needing to find my windows 7 dvd which is who knows where!) at some point in the future if needed?okay good news. Bare hard drive install using download win 8 pro wont activate but I booted from the disk I had created again and did clean install and it automatically activated. So all good
If not, could I find my win7 dvds, do a reinstall of that, then upgrade it to get a "clean" win8 install?
If the answers to both of these are no, can either be done with the store bought upgrade version?
So, Glico, can you confirm that you are able to download a complete Windows 8 Pro .iso using the 'NZ$49.99 Upgrade' route?
