    I'm specifically looking for this ISO en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso

    It isn't on the-eye, and all other links are dead

    the-eye eu site is not working but the edu.cu site LostED mention is working on my end as I checked myself
    for Win8 32bit you need "en_windows_8_x86_dvd_915417.iso"

    I'm playing around with Windows 8 (Home) and heard that there's a way to update it to Windows 8 (Pro). I've followed a number of links to MS that resulted in 404 pages. Apparently, MS used to offer the update, free or paid, but has removed it from their website. I took a quick look at 'the-eye.eu', but couldn't tell if that update was there. The update adds some features to the Home version when it updates to the Pro version, such as a Policy Editor etc. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and if you do, can you direct me to a download of the update? Thanks.

    Do you mean 8.0 not supported anymore or 8.1?

    If I understand the images, you're saying to just click on the internal Windows links, enter a key, and update Windows 8. Clicking on those links on my computer, either in the Properties window or the Control Panel, does nothing at all for me. Plus I don't have a key as my Windows 8 came already installed. So, still hoping for a link to the update files. Thanks for your reply.

    Thanks, Enthousiast. I really appreciate the links!
    I will play around with the ISOs and see how it goes, but I'm pretty sure it's what I was looking for.
    Also, thanks for pointing out what was important in your images. :)

    If it's an OEM system that came with 8.x pre-installed. then don't forget to use an ei.cfg, else it will install the edition that the MSDM is for (mostly Core):
    Code:
    [Channel]
    _Default
    [VL]
    0
    Put the file in the "ISO:\Sources" folder.
