Frequently Asked Questions:
What edition of Windows 8 will I receive when I upgrade?
Windows 8 Pro (Upgrade) is included for the retail promotion.
Are Windows 7 touch-enabled PCs compatible with Windows 8?
If you have touch input hardware that isn't specifically designed for Windows 8, but is compliant with Windows 7 certification, you will experience touch responsiveness at least as good as it was on Windows 7. Because Windows 8 touch requires a higher degree of responsiveness and precision, Windows 8 certified touch PCs provide a much better experience typing on the on-screen keyboard and using certain controls than on Windows 7 certified PCs. For example, touchscreens that support fewer than five simultaneous touch points cannot enable certain Windows 8 features and applications.
Is Windows Media Center included in the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro?
If you want to install Windows Media Center, you need to purchase the Windows 8 Media Center Pack after you upgrade to Windows 8 Pro through the Add features to Windows 8 wizard.
Will DVD playback work after upgrading?
If you already have third-party playback software, the Windows Upgrade Assistant helps determine if this software is compatible with Windows 8. If your PC is running Windows 7, you will have the option to keep this software during the upgrade to Windows 8. If your PC is running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you will need to reinstall it. Otherwise, you will need to acquire third-party playback software after the upgrade to play DVDs. Alternatively, you can acquire the Windows 8 Media Center Pack or the Windows 8 Pro Pack after the upgrade. Both packs include Windows Media Center, including the ability to play DVDs.
What is the minimum screen resolution for Windows 8?
To access the Windows Store and to download and run apps, you need a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768. You also need this screen resolution to run the apps built in with Windows 8. To snap apps, you need a screen resolution of at least 1360 x 768.
Is there a limit to the number of upgrades I can purchase?
The promotional price is limited to a maximum limit of five upgrades per customer.
Why is there a limit of five upgrades per customer?
This is a consumer promotion on individual PCs and for non-commercial purposes. The installation process and media is designed for individuals. Businesses and other organizations can take advantage of other programs that allow upgrades to Windows 8 through Microsoft volume licensing programs.
Will businesses or enterprise be eligible for these promotions?
The promotion is for individual customers like students, home users, and enthusiasts. Organizations can be eligible subject to this maximum limit per organization.
Can all Windows 7 PCs be upgraded to Windows 8?
To upgrade a PC to Windows 8, the PC must meet the minimum system requirements for Windows 8 and pass required compatibility checks.
Will I receive support when I purchase an upgrade either at retail or online?
Yes. The purchase of the upgrade comes with 90 days of no-charge support from Microsoft. The 90-day period begins after you install and activate Windows 8. Note: Telecom or other access fees may apply.

Windows 8 not to bad
was thinking it was going to be difficult to navigate however, once you get the hang of it, it is not a bad OS

Upgrade Version Provides Less Functionality
I purchased in January 2013 at $69.99 while, unbeknownst to me, Microsoft was offering the non-upgrade version on-line for %40.00. The Upgrade version won't permit you to DualBoot, and the Metro UI is intrusive and cumbersome to use. So if you can stand your OS continually phoning home to Bing, and the lack of a Start button, and a retail Store on your Metro, you'll be rewarded with a considerably more stable and easier to troubleshoot OS. But at $199.99, I'd think twice....

window 8 Pro NO Office
when I buy windows pro I expect to have microwsoft office otherwise I do not see a reason to buy pro. All my windows pro programs I bought before included microwsoft office standard. I will never buy it without office included that would loose its value. I would tell everyone not to buy windows pro till they include Office like it has always been before.

buy this only if you want another cell phone
Windows 8 turns your computer into a cell phone. I do not like it because I want a computer and not another cell phone
- Jan 30, 2013
Had no problems installing. After installation had to reload my applications again. Did not lose any personal files, emails or pictures. Having problems with my scanner. It no longer works on the network had to attach it via usb port to desktop. Not a MS problem, but a product upgrade problme from the manufactor.
