    Downloading Windows 8 questions


    Ok, when i go to my Yahoo page, hit www.microsoft.com, hit buy i am redirected to the belgian site.

    When i open www.google.be i can go to the MS site.

    I want to buy Windows 8 like many others, so here are my questions (do not find the answers).

    In the PRO version are all the languages included (as in the previous Window versions).

    When downloading, how does this work to get 3 times Win8 X64 and 1 x Win 8 X32?

    for me i want the english version, the other 3 in dutch.

    In belgian i will be charged 29.99 euro, but as said i do not know how to get 4 licences at once.

    thanks

    Jeff

    I saw no option to get more than one upgrade version when I got mine, wanted more than one also, so you will have to run the upgrade assistant for each one you want.

    I am also buying several windows 8 pro licenses. Do I also have to download the windows 8 ISO file for each license or are the ISO's all the same?

    I've purchased and downloaded the Windows 8 Pro Upgrade from two separate 64-bit computers and find that the two windows.iso have different hash values. It appears that the ISO's are not the same and possibly could not be used to install on a different computers than the one from which it was downloaded.

    I'm getting two Windows 8 Pro Upgrade versions, I downloaded one from the laptop and currently installing it on one of my desktops. It's almost done, no problems so far.

    No problems, installed fine, custom install.

    Everything is set up, all four updates done, starting on the programs.

    Thanks for letting us know. Now the question is will the serial number you received for the 64-bit install work if you chose a 32-bit install.
