    Upgrade offer validity


    Hi, I am eligible for the win8upgrade offer for my country. However I have a doubt. What if I would simply want to purchase the upgrade and not install it? Can I continue with windows7 even after purchasing the win8 upgrade and latter (say 2 years latter) decide to install the upgrade. Will the install still be valid at that point?

    Simply put : How long is the validity of iso downloaded from the upgrade offer?

    Once you paid for the product it's up to you to use whenever you like, I don't think there will be any dead line on your purchase.

Hi, I had planned on upgrading one laptop to Win8 using the time-limited $40 offer, but now I'm instead selling that laptop. Are there any time limits to when the $40 upgrade has to be installed? For if not, I would buy it now anyway and install it a bit later on another machine. Thanks.
