    The download was for like opening in windows 7. Not an iso.

    Right. It was an exe of some sort?
    Start the exe process from a Windows 7 PC, of the same bit level you want to end up with (64bit or 32bit)
    Early, there should be an option to "Install now" "Install later via media" and "Install from desktop"

    Choose 'Install later via media'
    This will allow you to create a DVD or USB install.

    ONCE AGAIN not sure how this helps. He is going to be doing video editing and gaming and probabbly dosen't want a glitchy beta. Also probabbly dosen't want to hear "Oh yeah I know you spent $150 on windows 8 but you bassicaly flushed your cash down the toilet, now spend $400 to keep using your current os"

    This is what you're looking for:
  8. I know this thread is old, but it is a top hit on Google, so others will likely click this looking for an answer.

    To download Windows 8.1 if you have a valid key you can download it from here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/upgrade-product-key-only

    You need to have your product key ready to begin the download. It will allow you to download as an iso and burn to DVD if you want.
