Why would you ever want a x86 OS anyways?
They still actually do provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 8 still.
From this link (http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/13200-windows-8-upgrade-iso-redownload.html?filter=Installation%20and%20Setup
) there's actually the following warning message:
If you need to download a 32-bit (x86) Windows 8 ISO, then you must do this on a 32-bit Windows PC.
If you need to download a 64-bit (x64) Windows 8 ISO, then you must do this on a 64-bit Windows PC.
@OP: Unlike Windows 7, MS only provides the ISO link to people who actually purchased Windows 8. IF you recall with Windows 7 you can freely Google the ISO links and get a bunch from an outfit called Digital River (MS Partner) with Windows 8 though you don't get such links.
