It shows in my PayPal $14.99 was deducted. Maybe I am searching for the wrong email. I searched under Windows upgrade offer I searched for the following email:Windows8_USD@arvatousa.com What should I be searching for?
search for "Thanks for ordering Windows 8"

heck there are several more keywords you could use to search for it, but you need to learn how to do that....

Thank you!

I found the email and gave you a REP. I found your post somewhat sarcastic though. Will it be illegal for people to private message their Windows 7 Key just to input on the verification form to download Windows 8? I know several people do not want to upgrade to Windows 8. I want to know how to do download the ISO file. If I click on the link in the email it wants to download a Windows setup file then Windows assistant opens and shows downloading.

why would you pm your key? are you trying to sell it to another member here?

here's a wiki on how to download the iso...

How to check your order/key or buy a DVD later or download again?
  • http://www.mswos.com/ and enter your order information.
  • In the e-mail that they sent you with the code, the link "order your personal backup DVD now" takes you to http://www.mswos.com/ (i.e., you can buy the DVD later if you cannot make your own)
  • Enter you order information to see your order summary. Find "Click here to download Windows 8" at bottom of the page.
  • If you download again on a PC running a 32-bit version of Windows, you will get the 32-bit version. If you download again on a PC running a 64-bit version of Windows, you will get the 64-bit version.

Where does the Upgrade Assistant store files and how to create disc on XP?
  • C:\ESD\Windows (hidden directory)
  • You may need to un-hide hidden folders under folder settings. Burn ESD\Windows to DVD using software like ImgBurn or PowerISO or similar (when running software, make sure to make the DVD bootable).

No, you misunderstood me. I meant people that are not using their Windows 7 give it free to someone who wants to upgrade to Windows 8.

there's a whole reason why there are keys like this..

they are not meant to be shared...they are also on record with MS unless it was pirated or something...

I am presuming you bought the Windows 8 key with your Windows 7 key which is legit. Technically, you can't use that same Windows 7 key anymore to do any upgrades. I would also think, that you're trying to defraud somebody by doing this...

You should very well know what keys are for....unless maybe you're just too late in realizing this..

Now, if you're the one who wants to use someone else' Windows 7 key to get an upgrade to Windows 8, you're walking on a very thin line here....and the other person is on the dumb side to give you his / her key...

Actually, I bought it before they required any key all. However, I have a legit key if needed.That's why I asked, I simply didn't know.

I believe you had to purchase the windows 7 pc/laptop between May/June 2012 to 1/31/2013 to qualify. I bought 2 pc's last year within that time period and was able to get 2 codes and purchase 2 upgrades. I didn't have to submit/type the windows 7 key, I used their upgraded adviser and it qualified my pc's.

SAME here.. I have done this upgrade and started hating the new OS for many reasons
not having Start button, no drivers for my printer(Brother), quite annoying with not having RUN command handy... many more..
I have switched back to Win7 Ultimate on all of my computers.
I regret this upgrade..
Now even I got Office 13 upgrade offer for 10 bucks.. declined..
