    Windows 8 is in RTM stage with build 9200.
    The evaluation copy will work for a period of time, but it will expire and you will have to buy Windows 8.

    I don't think there is any possible way to get to build 9200 unless you pay for Windows 8 from the Microsoft store.

    Build 8400 is the Release Preview, which will expire on January 15th 2013.
    To get the 9200 (rtm), you must purchase windows 8 from Microsoft for $39.99 2gb download or $69.99 retail box dvd.
