Unlike any other previous operating system version of Windows, the Windows 8 Pro can be now availed as an upgrade option to even those users who have been using the pirated and Non-licensed version of the Windows 7 OS. Though we have had the original licensed OS versions, so the upgrading was a normal process, but for the users who were having the non-genuine version of the same, they can also upgrade to the latest Windows 8 OS which was launched yesterday, and this is possible for a very stunning price of US $13 or INR 699. This is a promotional price against the original price of Rs. 2000 for the Windows 8 Pro.
You need to go to WindowsUpgradeOffer.com and select your country and enter your details like Name, Email address and the main information about the Windows 7 purchase. To avail the discount offer, you need to enter the date of purchase of the Windows 7 as something within the last 2 months. Microsoft won’t bother much about the model number, brand and the Name of retailer, but the date is an important part.
Although this offer is available for normal users who have bought new PCs or laptops within the last 2 months, they can enter the original details and get the upgrade done, the others who have purchased their laptops and PCs months or years back can also avail the same by entering a very recent date.
Once you have entered the details, you will see the following message:
Ordering Your Upgrade
You will soon receive another email that includes your personal promotion code which enables you to receive the special promotional pricing for the digital download of Windows 8 Pro. That email will also include instructions on how to order the Windows 8 Pro download and how to purchase an optional DVD.
And in a few minutes, you would receive an Email from Microsoft along with the Promo Code you can use to purchase and get the discount.
You need to use that promo code while ordering using the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant, the tool which would check for the apps compatibility and then let you upgrade by taking your order and providing you with a 2GB download file for the installation.
Here are the actual prices of the Windows 8 operating system:
- Windows 8 Pro Pack – Product Key Card (no media) – $70
- Windows 8 (Full Version) – OEM $100
- Windows 8 Pro (Full Version) – OEM $140
The above trick is working for almost everyone, and this could be an attempt from Microsoft to make people move away from piracy and pay a minimal fee to be ethical and use the genuine products from Microsoft in their computers. If that was intentional, then Microsoft is at trying hard to make people ignore piracy and use Original Windows 8, or this could be an attempt to push Windows 8 to as many PCs as possible. Whatever the reason, be sure you upgrade as soon as you can.
Illegal Pirated Windows Users License Upgrade
Users of Illegal pirated version of Windows 7 can now get the original licensed copy of Windows 8 for just $39.99 which is around $130 less than the original final price of Windows 8 Pro. That means, even if you are using an illegal version of Windows 7 and wanted to upgrade, Microsoft would allow you to do that and they won’t ask for the license key for the current operating system version you are using. This offer is not just for the Windows 7 OS users, but also for the Windows Vista and Win XP.
