I question my windows 8 Pro was bay with with a promotional code for somewhere I read around the internet that if windos was purchased with this code every time you need to reinstall should always be installed windos 8 pro then do the update in windows store. Whether this information is true or now the first update will be able to download some files. Iso which will windows 8.1 and you will not have to perform the procedure above

Lol! I chatted with the store for a link to the ISO. The person answered that it will be available via the Store on the 19th. I'm not in a good mood because of no ISO, so I answered it's in the store already > Try and keep up. Thanked her for her time and closed out. :p
