    Hello
    I have a new notebook ar work with, as i understand, Win 8 Core Single language preinstalled (i haven't activated it yet, if that mean anything). But, as i later discovered, i must have Pro version in order to work in our network. So, is there some way to trick/crack win 8 into upgarding, while keep it genuine?
    Please bear with me as i have next to none expirience with win8. thx.

    It depends. You can't join domain with windows 8 core, and this can't be patched, but you should be able to access some resources on your work network depending on server configuration.

    Not sure whether CoreSingleLanguage can be upgraded. You can test in Admin CMD with:

    Code:
    Dism /online /Get-TargetEditions
    In case no TargetEditions show up, there's no way :hmm:.
