an upgrade version basically is like a full version also, why would you want to pay more ?

unless Windows 8 works differently from Windows 7 though.

I did a clean install using my Windows 7 Pro Disc without installing any OS previously in the SSD/HDD.

http://betanews.com/2012/07/04/four-...ws-8-upgrades/

just saw this, they removed the clean install function.

So it will now go back to the draconian stage where you install another OS first then use the upgrade disc. Plain retarded though

The below is even tarded -.-

2. Are clean installations an option during the upgrade process? LeBlanc mentions that users can select to format the hard drive they want to install Windows 8 Pro on during the upgrade process. This may include the drive the earlier version of Windows was installed on, which is excellent news for users who want to start with a clean fresh operating system. It needs to be mentioned that no data can be migrated from the old operating system to the new if format is selected.

Kudos to MS for making ppl waste more time >.>

Four things you REALLY need to know about Windows 8 upgrades

Thanks for the link.

So, I still need my existing windows7 on my drive before I can install windows8 over it since the clean install function is removed.

yes but the retarded thing is that you can choose to format during the upgrade process which equates to a clean install.

but it is making users wasting additional time by forcing them to install an OS on it first.

Thanks for the clarifications.

Indeed, it is time consuming. The hassle of re-installing windows7, format it and install windows 8 when I replace my drive next time.

maybe it now needs to capture previous os license (b4 reformat), in order to check online later whether valid.

Went to the launch event @ Esplanade Theatre Roof Terrace. Totally boring. I as hoping to hear speakers giving professional introductions, etc... But is only a free walking around looking for quiz answer event.

Every single machine is looking so identical. Nothing special beside hardware... Too big for being a tablet, with so little apps. And too lousy for being a PC. Win8 is just not for me.

This might not be true if you know some command line but don't quote me on this yet cos I do need to get my hands on one first.

I will report back my finding once I verify this myself
