W8 Microsoft Download Version - Recovery Question


Posts

Hi W8 forums

I am considering going for the Microsoft download version of W8 (here in the UK it is £25 + VAT).

When the download is done and the OS installed, do you have to back it up onto a disk or do something similar?

I am wondering how a person would go on if their system had a massive crash and the OS had to be reinstalled.

Would the person have to go back to W7 (using their disk) and then somehow get back onto W8?

Thanks in advance.

You have an option to create an ISO and burn it to a DVD.
