Since I am running the 90 da, eval, it doesn't look like MS is letting me do the online upgrade. That leaves me with $70 full version. Fortunately I have a Microsoft Store near work.

But my Samsung Slate doesn't have a working DVD drive. There is an MS tool to make a bootable USB drive from an ISO. But that only gets me half way.

To make matters worse, I don't have a working DVD at home on a Windows box, but only in a Mac Mini, lol! So I'll have to pull this off at work today.

Any ideas?

Did you make the ISO, if yes,
move the ISO to the Mac & burn a DVD.
