I have AutoCAD 2007 running on an old Win XP system because I use it in my business but I am concerned about the fact the Windows does not support XP. I can then choose language and have to enter my key. Microsoft's support lifecycle policy treats Windows 8.1 similar to previous service packs of Windows: It is part of Windows 8's support lifecycle, and installing Windows 8.1 is required to maintain access Use the software manager or go direct to Oracle.

Reply philipyip says: 15/08/2015 at 12:54 The .isos I list are just for US and UK English. You can install Windows 8.1 using the ISO or even burn it to a DVD or make a bootable USB thumb drive with the media. Will this media work for that purpose? It should be noted that it does not give you the Edition of Windows 8.1 this product key is for however at least you can confirm you have an OEM product
Philip, you’ve done a helluva job here! Simple clean install, especially with Dell, as if the computer has drivers for the OS, these will be listed. There are probably free copies of Windows 8 floating around somewhere, right?UPDATE: Windows 10 is the most recent version of Windows available and can be upgraded to from your Windows 8 version you have I have figured out how to boot into my USB drive with secure boot enabled.
Thanks again! One thing that I’d like to ask of you is to do some coverage on the Dell Ubuntu computers, these doesn’t get the exposure needed, maybe you can help. Unlike earlier installation media this tool treats Windows 8 “Edition” and Windows 8.1 “Edition” as equivalent. http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/download-windows-8-1-retail-and-oem-iso/ Computer Type PC/Desktop System Manufacturer/Model Number Hinze57 OS win8.1.1 enterprise CPU AMD FX 6100 6core 3.30gHz Motherboard gigibyte ga-78lmy-s2p Memory 4gig ddr3 Graphics Card Radon hd5000 Series Sound Card onboard realtek
I even tried Easy Recovery Essentials and Kaespersky Rescue Tools, SpinRite, chkdsk, SFC, blah blah blah. Ideas? I can’t believe that they actually call these ‘performance’ notebooks, seems like battery life is the main objective. Thus you have to install a modern Windows OS in order to download a modern Windows OS… which is a bit of a catch 22 for those stuck on Windows XP
Gilbert J. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8 I can not use the system repair or system reinstall functions built into my current win 8.1 install. Part 3: Determining your Windows Edition when you Cannot Boot into your OEM Installation As retail product keys are sold directly by Microsoft the Edition and key are usually clearly printed Blow all the partitions, Windows will recreate what it needs during installation.
Optimized pages for faster browsing. It seems W-10 will be downloaded to my system so I can upgrade when it is released just as advertised. I have a bit of a unique problem. Watching DVDs requires separate playback software.
If the license is OEM then your product key will reside within the system UEFI/BIOS known as a System Locked Preinstallation (SLP) key. I have been trying to resolve this issue for about a month now. I found my pre-installed Windows to be ‘Windows 10 single language for’ (nothing after for on the website) using the service tag and your instructions, thanks.

Reply Cat Tilley says: 22/09/2015 at 07:30 Philip, the media can be downloaded from a Linux OS, I’ve tested the link for this. Thoughts? I updated it to W8.1 and used it for a couple of years with no real problems.
This means it can be used both with OEM product keys and RETAIL product keys and no “unofficial workarounds” are required. It was a freebie with the supposed only limitation that OEMs cannot change the default search results from Bing to another vendor. I hit F12 for the boot selection and select UEFI USB. Reply philipyip says: 13/07/2015 at 08:08 Select GPT for the UEFI BIOS after loading the .iso and selecting the USB, before you press Start.
You'll be prompted to choose your installation option again. I am really happy with this desk top from Dell and I expect to like it better with Win 10. I didn’t know about the problem with upgrading Win 8 to 8.1 until this column brought it to my attention and I so appreciate Mr. SOOOOOOOOO grateful to be running Linux Mint!
I know I am having second thoughts about ever shopping with them again and I have been a fan of DELL since the 70’s. Have a great day & a big thanks to Philip for everything he’s done for his site. I checked the sticker at the base of the system and compared this with the Edition in system properties. Have I built a AUD $3000 boat anchor?
More about Windows 8.1 at Wikipedia. Use the media creation tool (aprx. 1.41MB) to download Windows. Allowing for people who dislike change, I’ll address stuff “NOT” change. 10 has caused breakage issues: no display, no access to network, problems with Cortana, peripherals not working… I’d say the Comment here if you face any issues during windows 8.1 pro iso download or installation.
After I got the instruction to refrain from using the DVD with my system I went ahead and used the above mentioned “Rufus” to make boot-able flash drive.
