  1. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    I believe you have to have an unused, legitimate OS to qualify for the upgrade pricing. I do not believe it has to have been purchased by you. I can purchase an OS, use it, then uninstall that OS and...
  2. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    If someone wanted to use the $40 upgrade on a new HD, they would have to install a licensed OS first. Many of us have other OS's lying around unused. Otherwise you would have to purchase the "full...
  3. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    According to everything I have seen, and Drew may know more about this, in order to upgrade from Win 8 RP to Win 8 Pro, Win 8 RP must have been installed over an underlying qualifying licensed OS...
  4. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    Installations of Win 8 seem to go quite effortlessly in most cases. Yes we see quite a few questions about installation problems, but when you look at the millions of installations that have...
  5. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    There will be other options, but we do not know pricing yet. There will be a full install, there will be straight Win 8 and not Win 8 Pro. There will be a system builder version, etc. I would assume...
  6. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    Don't worry, the naysayers will still be looking for any little morsel of bad publicity or bad info they can find to cling to, in the hopes of pointing out why Win 8 is "so bad".
  7. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    It would be great to be in the category that we could get the RTM when released in August. I'm not so I guess I'll have to wait until Oct 26th.

    I will never own a Mac in this household! I demand...
  8. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    Can't answer that my friend.
  9. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    I would assume you can purchase Win 8 and install it whenever you wish, but the download would probably have to be done now rather than waiting for a couple of years.
  10. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    We had 2 separate threads discussing this exact same thing with good information in both. I have merged these 2 threads into a single Sticky Thread so anyone reading this info will not miss an...
  11. Re: Windows 8 Pro upgrade set for $39.99

    Now if they will give us a release date, we can start making our plans. The nice thing about my setup is that all data is on my data drive so after I install Win 8 Pro in my Win 7 partition, all I...
  12. Re: Windows 8 Pro upgrade set for $39.99

    Face it, We'll be busy as hell, no 2 ways about it.

    TM, you had better stick with us during this phase, even though you are keeping Win XP. I need an auld phart to keep me in line.
  13. Re: Windows 8 Pro upgrade set for $39.99

    I will just Image my Win 7 just before the install, then install Win 8 Pro there. With a new Image just before the installation, I will be able to get Win 7 back if needed.

    I think I will also be...
  14. Re: Windows 8 Pro upgrade set for $39.99

    If you read the article I linked you will see it actually mentions the upgrade path and format during the install. It also mentions not formatting the partition ahead of time, but allowing the format...
  15. Re: Windows 8 Pro upgrade set for $39.99

    Thanks threeone. I merged our two separate threads into one thread. It will be easier for all to see the entire discussion in this way.
  16. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal!

    Should not need a Full Version. The article explains that if upgrading from an existing version you can boot to a DVD and choose Custom install and format as part of the installation. It does however...
  17. Re: Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal!

    Dave, Ummm, your link is the same I posted. Thanks for verifying about Twitter. I do not have an account.
  18. Windows 8 Pro pricing announced and what a deal! $39.99 USD

    The Windows Blog has a pricing structure listed, and what a deal! This is for Win 8 Pro and includes the Media Center at NO ADDITIONAL COST! If this is indeed true (no reason to doubt it) Win 8 Pro...
