So about a year ago I had Windows 8 on my computer but ended up completely screwing everything up and ended up installing Ubuntu, and later Arch Linux which I am now running. I recently decided to try and get Windows 8 back for personal reasons.
As I am currently a student I applied for the student edition of Windows 8 to buy it for a lower price. I was verified so I went to the purchase page and saw this:
Important: Windows 8.1 Pro full version is for Windows 7 users only.
Currently running Windows Vista or XP? First upgrade to Windows 8 Pro Upgrade – Student Offer.
Upon installation you can update to 8.1 for free.
So I want to make sure that I would be able to actually download the ISO instead of those upgrade programs you get where you input the product key? Because I'm not able to do that on my lappy as I am on Linux.
Any help is appreciated.
Here's the purchase page for those that are interested: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Windows-8.1-Pro-for-Students/productID.288769600
