If you could do a clean install with an upgrade disc, what is the difference between a windows 8 upgrade disc and the regular windows 8 discs.
I would imagine that Best Buy offers regular windows 8 discs rather than upgrade discs but I can't find it on their site. Do you know if they'd have it and how much it would be?
What is the difference between the regular version and the pro version?
Agreed. Also, from what I am reading, there are no "full" versions of W8 (there are only upgrade versions). Are you sure there are full versions?
The reason this is important is because I want to format my drive before installing windows 8 and start from scratch.
If there isn't, wouldn't I be able to format my drive and then upgrade to W8. That would essentially be considered a clean install of W8 since my drive had just been wiped clean right?
When I clicked on that link, it took me to a page with a TrendNet router lol.
I also would like to get this today so if I bought the upgrade version, couldn't I format my drive and upgrade to W8 and consider that close enough to a clean W8 install?
Alrite and just another question or two.
Is it almost safe to assume that any program compatible with windows 7 is also compatible with windows 8 or is that not true?
Also, is Start8 the best vendor for an actual start button for the desktop?
Okay last thing.
I use Norton Ghost to create full, disc image backups and apparently it isn't compatible with windows 8. Do you know of a similar software that is?
Sorry I haven't been at my pc for a little bit.
This seems like a hell of a deal right? http://www.journeyed.com/item/Microsoft/Windows+8/1557102
As a matter of fact, it's cheaper than the basic version (on that site).
Okay great! Thank you for all of your help. You have been extremely helpful.
What other types of issues could I come to you for should one any ever present themselves?
Okay great. I don't know if this falls under your area but I am having a very spontaneous issue with my HP printer. Last night it was working fine and today it wouldn't print anything. Whenever any sort of issue presents itself with my printer, I simply uninstall the software and reconfigure the printer from scratch. That has worked 100% of the time until now.I have attached a screenshot of the error I am getting when trying to reconfigure the printer. It can be viewed at this link (http://tinypic.com/r/dy535z/6).My printer is a HP Photosmart C4780.
