This is what I did: Register first: Register to Upgrade [windowsupgradeoffer.com]

Then download Upgrade Assistant by clicking on Download Pro for $39.99: Upgrade Assistant Download [microsoft.com]
Run the software. Enter promo code that was emailed on the first step. It should subtract $25.00. Then purchase for $14.99. I entered July 1 2012 as purchase date.

Thanks. How quickly did you get an email?

Is there no way to upgrade from windows 8 to windows 8 Pro? I can't even get through the upgrade assistant without getting an error saying it's not available for download in my country/region. I restarted a few times and get the same message everytime I try, Makes no sense to me. any help would be appreciated

I'd be fine with that, just got the laptop today so nothing on it yet. I guess I should try to download and save it to a disc from my other computer?

yes, burn at least 2 disc and/or save the files which should be in c:\ESD

the first time i downloaded i made 2 disc burns and the first disc kept hanging at the same place during the install.

you can dual boot if you want to keep both OS versions for now.

also, burn the backup disc for the OS that came with the laptop before you remove it.

Hopefully, I caught you in time. My advice take out the hard drive that came with the laptop that has Windows 7 on it. Put in a new hard drive and put 8 on that. When you get ready to change back just put the original hard drive back in.

Good Luck
