    big help needed, win 8 upgrade assistant!

    Hey guys,

    About 3 months ago I installed windows 8 pro through the upgrade assistant, pretty sure I had the deal where it wad about $40?

    Basically I had to get my hard drive replaced as it broke now im back to the stock windows 7, and in desperate need of getting windows 8 back, but im not sure how to do it.

    Ice downloaded the upgrade assistant again but its just giving me the options of which one to buy, which I dont need because ive already purchased it.

    Its not coming up in my purchase history on the Microsoft/windows website wither, and I dont find the email I had when I purchased it.

    I rung customer service and they said they can help me, but only after a 130 technical charge which I will NOT be paying seeing as ive already bought it!

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

    As theog says, this should be the pertinent tutorial: Windows 8 Upgrade ISO - Download or Create. If you need UEFI support, then your downloaded ISO, what would need to be 64 bit, may not have the support. If not, then use option 2 in the tutorial.
