    Fishing,

    It's some issue on your computer that's causing the error.

    You could either spend a lot of time trying to find the cause on your computer, or simply download it on a friends computer.

    If you wish to keep trying on your computer, then temporarily disable any 3rd party installed AV or firewall program to see if they may be blocking the download. You might also try doing this in Safe Mode with networking.

    That indicates that the laptop is not connected to the internet.

    Have tried my computer running windows 7 and my wifes computer running vista
    my computer shows unspecified error and the wifes computer lets you put the serial number then it says you are not on line.
    both computers I have stopped the antivirus and firewall and both are still the same

    Fishing,

    On the laptop, try temporarily uninstalling any 3rd party AV and firewall program, then try again. Sometimes simply disabling them does not help.

    fishing,

    I've been seeing more and more people having this same issue, and nothing has helped so far.

    You might try during off peak hours (ex: 2 AM) to see if you may be able to if it's an overload issue at Microsoft.

    I contacted Microsoft customer support 08448002400 and they put me in touch a support team who were in the Philippines they took over my computer and were on the phone for over two hours the disabled my antivirus and did lots of windows updates and other stuff to much for me to tell you but after they had finished there stuff they downloaded Windows 8 pro. for me and burnt a ISO to a dvd.
    Thanks for all your help at lease its sorted now
