Upgrade Windows 8- things you should know


So Windows 8 is comming soon and we’re all thinking to upgrade and Microsoft gives up some good news. Not only that we can upgrade from Windows 7 at a small price (around 40$ if yu don’t want to have an original dvd wich cost 70$) but we can also upgrade from Vista and even from  Windows XP .

Although these are superbly good news thats about it. There are also a few bad news:

  • if you have Windows XP, you must have SP3 installed to upgrade. But Be aware only your files will remain. All your settings will be gone and application will have to be reinstalled
  • if you have Windows Vista, you must have at leats SP1. If you don’t, be aware only your files will remain. All your settings will be gone and application will have to be reinstalled. But if you do your settings will also be kept.
  • they must have the same language. You cannot upgrade form windows 7 spanish to windows 8 english

As you probably know, you cannot upgrade from 32bit to 46.

You will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 standard from Windows 7 Home Basic ,Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Starter. Same for Windows 8 Pro.

Upgrading to Windows 8 Pro is posible only for  computer running Windows 7 Professional and. Windows 7 Enterprise.
