    Upgrade to Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation


    Hi all,

    It's posible to upgrade from windows 7 Professional to Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation keeping all programs, files?

    I have tried the registry trick but doesn't work for me. It always detect the correct version installed.

    You could create a partition of around 40-50GB and test the windows 8.
