    Windows 8.1, 10


    I know the problem has been solved because the OP has found Win 7 install media.

    However I was wondering what would have happened if an alternative route would be to download and install the ISO version of the 64 bit Win 8.1 preview, and from there run the steps to download Windows 8 using a product key? Would that have worked? (Although I could see why an "Upgrade" routine wouldn't have been happy to "upgrade" from 8.1 to 8)

    Good news.

    I clean-installed the 64-bit of Windows 7. I double-checked system properties to ensure it was, in fact, the 64-bit version.

    Then, I downloaded Windows 8 while running Windows 7 64-bit. I created both an ISO file, and a USB stick.

    I used the USB stick to clean-install Windows 8 64-bit. When it finished installing, I double-checked system properties to ensure it was 64-bit.

    It is, so I'm now running Windows 8 64-bit.

    Thanks for the help and suggestions, everyone. Now, to reinstall my software and see how that goes! Jd
