I'm thinking about downloading windows 8 from their website and I was wondering if I could save the download so I can save it to a disk for later use. It's the upgade for $39. Does anyone know?

If you have not previously downloaded Win 8 Pro (prior to Feb. 1st) then the $39.99 offer is no longer available. This was a special offer that ended on Jan. 31st.

If you had previously purchased the Upgrade for $39.99, but did not use the Install bu creating media option then kemical's method should work.

There is another possibility.
I think it depends on what computer you have. As I understand it, if you bought a Windows 7 computer between Jun 2nd., until 31st Jan, then the upgrade is available until the end of February, for .$14.99.

But you have to prove where you bought the computer, and supply your key!

Maybe you are one of the qualifiers?
