Greg Shultz shows us all of the steps involved in using the $15 upgrade offer to download Windows 8 Pro and burn it to a DVD.
Back in June of this year, Microsoft announced that they would be offering a $15 Windows 8 upgrade to anyone who purchased a new Windows 7 PC on or after June 2. And best of all, rather than having the program administered by the OEMs, this time Microsoft is handling the whole process themselves.
Well, back in August I purchased a new system and recently decided to investigate the $15 Windows 8 upgrade. While the procedure was fairly easy, there were a lot of steps and some uncertainty here and there. As such, I decided to document the entire procedure in an article so that anyone wanting to go this route will know exactly what to expect. In this post, I\’ll show you all of the steps involved in using the $15 upgrade offer to download Windows 8 Pro and burn it to a DVD.
Keep in mind that the upgrade program will run until January 31, 2013, so you have plenty of time.
