You can still use an upgrade version to do a full install with Windows 8. It's the same workaround that allowed people to use Windows 7 upgrade copies to do full installs. I had to do this when I reformatted a while back. I didn't want to have to reinstall 7 just to upgrade to 8.


Can you elaborate?

Not sure, but this might work.

Windows 7, Windows 8 is dreadful IMO, and in the opinion of almost everyone I know IRL who has it or has to use it on a regular basis. Even after prolonged use I still don't like it at all
