    Download Windows 8 MSDN ISO. Activate it (with whatever method you want). Install StartIsBack.

    Or, if yoiu want the original New Start Button from Microsoft, you'll have to download and install the Windows 8.1 Pro Preview, which is the only one with the new original MS Start Button in Windows 8.x!:D
