    Upgrading to windows 8 from windows 7


    hello friends,i'm new to eight forums.I have a doubt.
    I have genuine windows 7 HP installed in my laptop.I am thinking of upgrading it to 8 pro,as there is a offer for 7 users to upgrade to 8 pro at lower cost.I want to know that if I purchase 8 pro will it download & install itself or will I get an image of windows 8 pro which I can write to a dvd?
