    Well that is the developer build I am running and talking about. It is a clean install only. You said they had standard builds that would upgrade Win7?

    They do and I did.

    Note that you can only use the upgrade option if you run the setup from within your existing windows installation and not from a boot from the iso.

    Yeah, but make a image backup of your old windows first.

    Hello Luka, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The pre release versions of Windows 8 are no longer available for download from Microsoft since Windows 8 is available for retail sale now.

    Instead, you will need to either purchase Windows 8, or you could give the 90-day evaluation of Windows 8 Enterprise a spin.

    Download Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
