    W8 ISO Installation

    Supposedly the 26th I will get the W8 Pro upgrade from Microsoft. I decided to use the ISO method and read the tutorial from Brink on how to accomplish this task. To insure I accomplish installation corrrectly I intend to do the following steps. Please advise if my logic is incorrect.

    1. Download the upgrade for W8 Pro to my desktop.

    2. Run the Windows 7 USB/DVD upgrade program for the ISO version.

    Thanks for the answer but please clarify " I would burn a DVD first as a backup "

    I went to that tutorial and it says to download to desktop.

    Are you saying make a extra DVD.
