Win 8 fresh install help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I just upgraded to win 8, and am having a HORRIBLE time trying to figure out what version it is, and where to get an iso for clean installs
So far the only way I've seen to reinstall is to install my old win7, then use the upgrade assistant crap (installing twice for one install is not going to work for me!)


It was the $119 dollar version if that helps at all, but I only seem to be able to find iso's for pro and enterprise, what a pain in the neck.
How are you guys dealing with fresh installs, and whatnot from botched ocs and drives kickin the bucket? This has me so annoyed.

You have the Windows 8 non-Pro edition.

It says so right there under "Windows Edition".

I think there's a way you can store/locate your Windows 8 .iso when using the Upgrade assistant.
