    Hello this is my first post and would like to know where I can download an 8.0 iso. My product key is contained within the bios.

    Other than TechNet or MSDN the only official download here won't accept OEM keys. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create
    If you can get your hands on a Windows 8.1 DVD you can do this, Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    m I good with either of these options?
    Yes. Win7 is probably your best bet. Far better os and not likely to have compatibility problems with your machine. Though you may need some specific drivers from HP website, whichever one you install.

    I thought I was the only one who posted to old, dead threads?

    I think some posts got deleted? I saw them in my notification e-mails but when I checked the actual thread they weren't there? What SIW2 replied to is MIA as far as I can tell?

    Probably. I am constantly getting notices of updates to threads that have no apparent updates, here and on sevenforums.

    I suspect some of them get moved to their own thread. Especially those that bump really old or dead threads. That and spam posts getting nuked. Anyway, with that in mind, we should probably stop spamming this one.
