    Downloaded windows 8.1 pro


    by the way of the internet and would now like to have the (hard copy) the disk that I can place in my dvd and load the full version of windows 8.1 pro. I have been having issues with the internet download and feel I would get a better job with the disk. Is this wishful thanking? Does anyone know the cost of the hard copy?

    Hello snakeoil,

    Where did you download it from, and/or what method did you use?

    Did you download it as an ISO file?

    Check the file extension, if its .iso its an ISO file, just like .txt means its a txt file. Example "en_windows_8_1_x64_dvd_2707217.iso"

    An ISO file is an image file can be used to burn a DVD.

    Weirdly, file extensions are hidden by default. A lot of people have never seen them and have no idea what they are.
