The ISOs there are all release final versions. There's 0 crime to download an ISO. The only thing that is important is your product key.

I found out a way to download the 64bit windows 8 pro.

Go to a PC with 64bits OS, I use Win7 64bits. Use the order number from your email. Follow the link in the email to re-download the software and create the ISO file. It will be 64bits. I just get it done and reinstall the 64bit Win 8 pro on my laptop.

For those who can't boot from DVD after installing Win 8. You need to do a full shutdown using command line "shutdown /r/o".

I've tried yesterday night to download on my windows 7 64bit PC, but forever at 0%.

Have previously used the link to download on a 32bit os PC.

Yup. Remember when downloading from BT make sure you check the SHA1 or MD5 after finishing the download to ensure your copy is untouched and matches 100%.

Because the link given is for downloading the digital (aka iso) copy of the full retail disc (technically similar to the $100+ system builder edition of the installation disc) . It is not same as the upgrade version that is generated by the windows upgrade assistant program.

Anyway, the link given are all torrent links. Can't help you directly, but try to look under 'Magnet link'. And when you have find them, use your favorite torrent program, downloader program or web browser to download them

While the CD key works for both 32 and 64-bit. You can only upgrade based on what you base OS is on. So if your base OS is 32-bit, you can only upgrade to Win8 32-bit. If your base OS is 64-bit, you can only upgrade to Win8 64-bit. If you want to change from 32 to 64-bit, you have to buy the full version. The full version is not available for purchase yet. These are from MS customer support.

If anyone knows how to upgrade from 32 to 64-bit, let me know. I am stuck with 64-bit unable to activate. I don't want to re-install my XP 32-bit only to upgrade to Win8 32-bit again. What is the point?

bro go read the other thread. A simple registry hack is all it takes to activate the OS.

managed to get it to work. So MS support and tech do not know what they are talking about. I was made to call them for 4 days. What a waste of time. Should have came here from day 1.
