Updating windows 7 to windows 8
This gives you a product key you can use to add the Media Centre once Windows 8 is installed.Again, the offer runs until 31 January, after which you'll need to pay to add Media Centre to the operating system.
In the early hours of this morning, I took the new operating system for a spin and upgraded a Windows 7 system.
The next step is to decide how you'd like to install Windows 8.
You can keep everything -- Windows settings, personal files and installed applications -- or just your personal files, or nothing at all (a clean install which wipes your hard drive and starts from scratch).
A driver update isn't always a fix-it task, either.
An updated driver might enable new features for the hardware, something I see on a regular basis with popular video cards and sound cards.
