    Windows 8.1

    I ended up doing a clean install. Kept Office 2010 on laptop by using a program to find product key and then reinstalled that way. Could have saved myself 2 days worth of hassle if I had just done that in the first place haha.

Clone Disk -- Does it REALLY Clone disks - I have doubts
