    Made a new build and wanted a clean install but can't get the right iso that is compatible with my own authentic key so have given up. What have you got?

    Just in case you wanted something brand new, I noticed Sainsburys selling off Windows 8 for £49.

    Yeah, that's no problem. Just make sure you install Windows 8 first - Windows 8 keys won't activate 8.1. You have to install 8, activate and then upgrade.

    Once you're running 8.1, you can download the 8.1 ISO from within Windows

    You can then use the 8.0 serial to activate the 8.1 ISO for a clean install, which is what I've done. It saves downloading all the updates etc.

    Damn. Well yes that would be ideal.

    McPhee are you ok with me taking this offer? If not I will understand and we'll see through our agreed deal.

    McPhee You are a gentleman sir.

    Bobdylan I am willing to take the 8.1 pro code for the same price of £25. That OK?
