    I found it. In the email receipt you received from MS after your purchase, near the top


    Thanks for your order!
    This is your receipt - make sure to print or save a copy for your records.
    If you need to download Windows, write down your new product key and enter it here.

    Click on here and it takes you to the download. (It does not work here. You must access it from your email receipt)

    Oh, I see, thanks a lot. I paid no attention on the email receipt.

    And now I saw it. It is a Windows 8 Setup exe file for download, here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=262204

    You just need to enter your product key, it will download and install Windows 8 again.

    Anyway it is not that convenient as DVD disk. Because if my system crashed, I have to install other Windows operating system, and run this Windows 8 setup exe file, and install Windows 8. That will cost me double times. Next time I will search where the iso file is, and burn into DVD.

    That's what I found in that link, was the setup (upgrade) file. About 5MB or so. That one won't create an ISO, it'll just upgrade again.

    I tried that from the beginning, to see if I could download the actual ISO. Back RP's days, there was a similar setup file to upgrade 7 with, the one that looked good at first, but hung at the update screen.

    This is a big change against before. Seems I have to order a DVD protecting my computer from system crash and install system twice at a time.
