Is This Windows 8 Pro The FULL or UPGRADE Version.

[ Edited ]

Simple Question...

 

Is this Windows 8 the FULL Version of Pro or is it an Upgrade Version. Upgrade discs are a pain in the butt!

I'm Pretty sure that it is the upgrade version because disc cost more money to manufacture so its probably the upgrade.

full version is around $150, upgrade version around $69, if you paid 14.99 for the promotion, it's the upgrade version and that requires windows 7 to be already installed and activated on ur hdd.

Err... No.  Windows 8 will allow clean install from a technical standpoint.
