    Where to order backup Win 8 DVD


    There was a link on here to order a backup DVD, but I can't find it. You put in the key and it was $13.99. Any one remember this? I chatted with Microsoft, she said I would have to call support.

    Yes that was back in 2012 most of us that bought computers late in 2012 were offered a upgrade copy of Win 8 Pro for $13.99 you had to take them up on the offer by January 2013 or some date close to that. There was no disk offer that I remember It was a ISO download. All win 7 owners were offered an upgrade to Win 8 pro for $ 50 or $45 I don't remember I purchased for all my computers within the tme limit. Still haven't used them all. I did clean install Win 8.1 Pro and the free offer for MC that I also was offered during the transition from Win 7 to Win 8. I don't think unless you took the offer back then and downloaded the ISO and have Product Keys you are going to do this now.

    Why not order the recovery disc from Dell?

    Or one may download the ISO, but I think OEM and System Builders keys don't work.

    If they are going to send a physical dvd through the mail, it is reasonable to expect a postage/handling charge of some kind. $13.99 seems ok.

    I started the request for DVD using my Win 8 Pro upgrade Key and it took it so I backed out at the Pay for cart window so maybe there is a path for a legal ISO

    As per Brink's tutorial only retail keys. You can get an 8.1 with 8 retail key.

    If you purchased Windows 8/8.1 and have a "retail" Windows 8/8.1 product key, then this tutorial will show you how to create or download an upgrade Windows 8 ISO or full Windows 8.1 Update ISO file.

Is anyone else a little surprised that no one has Windows 8 available for pre-order yet? Since MS is still more interested in physical media as opposed to downloadable, you'd think they'd want as many people getting their hands on it as soon as possible. I'd figure Amazon, NewEgg and other...
