Actually it is the upgrade from Win7 to Win8 Pro...

Why not buy the Win8 Pro upgrade from Win7 for about $100.00 then get the Win8.1 for free from Microsoft.

Re: Install W-8.1 bypassing Microsoft account

Interesting - makes Win8.1 even more palatable. I'm still planning on holding out for Windows 9 (or whatever it will be called). Has anyone seen a Microsoft roadmap/timeline for future versions of windows?

Re: Install W-8.1 bypassing Microsoft account

Thanks FVB, it is also available at NE for the same price. I would get it now but I can't. Got some other business to take care of first but this looks like what I want to get when I am ready.

It's not the spelling that counts, its the quickness of posting.

Re: Install W-8.1 bypassing Microsoft account

When I install W8.1 on this rig I don't want to enter a password to get to the desktop, is there a way to do that? My new Laptop I have to enter a pin or a password (I don't mind on my laptop) but on my this rig I don't want to have to. Thanks guys in advance.

This is the app you use? Thanks Skully, there's no way without using a app? All my W7 machines I just don't enter one on the install?
