Windows 8 isn’t available for download
I have a purchased copy of Windows 7 and want to take advantage of the $40 upgrade to Windows 8. (Actually, I am currently running Windows 8 RTM and would like to upgrade this to a full version, but I think this is irrelevant to my question).
I downloaded the upgrade assistant and ran it on Windows 8. It said some of my apps were incompatible (funny since they're running fine on Windows 8) etc, and I opted to continue. It then told me that it is not available in my country (I'm currently in Mexico).
My question is, how can I get around this? Can I download the ISO somewhere, and then purchase an upgrade key without going through the Upgrade Assistant? Any other suggestions?
