    How will it determine you are eligible for the upgrade?

    Perhaps they will just count the arrows in the back of us "pioneers".

    It checks the HDD for an installed copy of a qualifying OS. (XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 RP)

    I am on Win8 RP x86, trying to install the Win8 Enterprise N RTM x86. When I try the 'upgrade' route from clicking the installation file from inside windows, it gives me an error message saying that I cannot upgrade this pre-release version of windows, and kicks me to a microsoft webpage about upgrading from XP/Vista/7.

    I am currently putting the setup files onto a DVD with the hope that I can either upgrade or do a custom installation from the DVD before Windows boots.

    I believe you can only upgrade to the Pro version.
