    Hi all I recently purchased windows 8 pro 64bit on line but I bought the wrong one the version I bought was only the upgrade disc and a product key. My question is does anybody have a copy of the oem disc I can buy off them as i would like an original version other than downloading it. All Ineed is the software as I already have a product key. I would happily pay the cost of postage and if you would like payment for doing it.
    Thanks in advance

    Where did you buy it from?

    I know you said you didn't want to download it, but you should be able to download the .iso and create a DVD or flash drive from it.

    Thanks for your reply. I bought it off amazon thinking it was the full oem disc but turned out to be just an upgrade disc and product key. I've looked for an original dvd but cant find one anywhere. I could download it off torrent sites but all the operating systems ive had off there have been full off rubbish and dont seem to run properly.

    Ah, I see. You can do a Clean Install with the Windows 8 upgrade disc. See here: Clean Install with Windows 8 Upgrade
