    :confused:. As u can see I'm very confused about this new lovely Microsoft Windows 8 operating system. :eek:
    Right now I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (32-bit) activated by Windows Loader v2.1.7 and all Microsoft updates installed up to date i.e the loader works perfect. That's how i got here and always like ur activators and its my 1st preference. So now windows 8 has released I've downloaded Windows 8 RTM Build 9200 ISO from Softpedia.
    I cant give the link since i don't have 20 or more post so just google windows 8 softpedia and click on the 1st softpedia link. From there I've downloaded both 32 and 64 bit from 1st two links mentioned there.

    So i wanted to ask all of u and want Ur expert views on whether it's the latest, genuine i.e original Microsoft ISO of Windows 8 and is the enterprise i.e best of all win 8 editions since it has the most features. So Am I right @ all these things if not please please guide me to get the same latest, genuine ... as mentioned above :rolleyes:
    And please guys If I've downloaded :rolleyes: above :p then please guide me how to activate it. I wanted the daz activator type of which is best for win 7 so i wanted same for win 8 that it can permanently activate and download further future windows 8 updates by Microsoft.
    Also I've 4 gb ram ddr3 and 256 mb ATI radeon 3000 onboard graphics which can use till 1.5 gb memory sharing from RAM. So i wanted to know if windows 8 would lagg or slow my pc down if i install it having the above mentioned ram and graphics
    Again thank you for such a lovely Win 7 activator and I'm waiting for the same for Win8 :innocent:
    Regards,
    whizkidraj.

    And my friend told me that If we install windows 8 then we cannot navigate back to Win 7 :eek: since it changes some boot features or whatever some technical word he said. So is it really true or just a myth. Fingers Crossed :waycon1:

    From what I can see, you downloaded the free Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation,
    Screenshot (5).png
    This is the version that was released by m$ back in August for those who wanted to test the Windows 8 before general availability. That version can be activated legally through m4 servers but NOTE that the version will expire soon and no upgrades from this version.
    I would advice you to download the latest Windows 8 Pro RTM (Preferrably x64) from these links or any other link you might get from this forum or any other.
    After downloading, look for the thread for activating windows 8 through kms and go m$ to get the free Windows Media Center key to permanently activate your copy of Windows......

    Part 4 of 4: Activate Windows 8
    The following keys are for installing Windows 8 but not to activate.
    In order to activate you must use a key provided by Microsoft.
    Information about KMS activation can be found here.

    Retail
    Core =
    Professional = - retail key
    ProfessionalWMC = (Upgrade only, can't be used on WinPE) - retail key for Windows Media Center

    Volume
    gvlkCore=
    gvlkProfessional=
    gvlkProfessionalWMC=

    Which ISO do i have retail or volume and which version since its not written there. So i'm confused that it might be pro or core version and from volume or retail i think my iso is retail right since its written rtm there.
    Now I've shown u what I read and understood please correct me if I'm wrong and do inform me if I'm right @ all the things I've said. :). I could have downloaded it from my lan area where many ppl have shared all the win 8 stuff but i like to learn, research, pick the right links and software and download it myself and also this win 8 is very new now So i wanted to ask some 1 experienced in all these and I've used ur win 7 activator which is the best So i thought i should ask u all about me doubts and learn about all win 8 stuff. So please cooperate and give me all the guidance :)

    Both isos contain Core and Pro versions of Windows 8, the product key you enter at setup, will determine which edition the software installs for you.

    Plus, if you enter a retail key obviously Win8 will be installed using the RETAIL channel, and if you enter a VL key the same will happen, it will install using the KMS_CLIENT channel.
