Windows 8 Pro question

4 posts in this topic

check the value mediabootinstall in the registry under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Setup/OOBE/

. If the value is 1 you used a full version, if 0 you installed an upgrade.

You can also Install from the Upgrade Disks, but you must change the 0 to a 1 for a good activation then.
