    I'm just a noob, so I'm sorry if I made any mistake.

    I got an error while upgrading from the ISO that murphy78 uploaded on TPB. It says that I have to restart so that Windows starts , insert the installation media, and upgrade from there. I can't upgrade from Windows 8 because setup.exe doesn't work, and I'm using a VL version of Windows 8 with KMS. Everything I can do is do a clean install but that would hurt other users of my computer because they didn't back up their files.

    Also, I would like to say that I deleted EI.CFG in the ISO before putting it into my USB and booting it.

    The EI.CFG thing? I deleted that file before I booted.
