I'm creating a backup image now in windows 8. But I downloaded the upgrade to win8 and don't have the physical media disc. Let's say that my SSD craps out on me and I need to re-install this backup image. Do I have to install windows 7, do the upgrade to 8, and then install the backup image? Or will the windows 7 install media be able to restore the windows 8 image?
Windows 8 will not create a repair disc, because it is missing some files.
