In Topic: Can't restore Windows 8 from image

WOW. :angry:


All I was trying to do was make it a genuine install, but guess thats not gonna happen. Nobody has really even bothered to explain what downgrade rights was so I'm still somewhat confused. You can close this topic now I probably won't be responding much on here anymore if that's the attitude a forum manager has and refuses to answer some of my questions. :angry: :angry:

Thanks guys! :)

Already knew UEFI was not OS or image related, but haven't figured out how to use the shell yet. :P I'll probably experiment with this later when I get a chance. :)


Also one other question. This probably won't matter for licensing, but what if I installed Ubuntu on this computer then reinstall the mentioned Dell version of Windows 7 and replace the other computer with Ubuntu so only one would have this copy of Windows 7 installed. Would that make any difference since technically Windows 8 was not installed prior? Or would it not matter since it came with Windows 8 and therefore still under licensing between Microsoft and Dell?

The bold part was just to highlight the important parts , Sorry. What I was basically trying to say is for example, Your dell 7 disk will work and will install activated but unless the pc has 8 pro from the factory .. MS states its not Valid. I couldn't do that for you in my shop without being guilty of piracy . What you do on your own computer at your house is up to you.





At least you do get(that question has been answerd many times use the search function.)


Also the last few topics you started seemed to go to completion?


Ahh okay that was my bad then. Not your fault. I guess with all the trolls lately in WoW it kinda got to me. lol I understand now.


Yup. :P

Haven't wrote many for a bit so maybe I seemed to have forgotten about them. One of the last ones was with MBAM wanting to do a flashs can on every update even when not checked for some reason and Ron I think told me to set it to silent which wasn't exactly how I wanted it, but it worked I just liked to see feedback with the tooltip on update.


Maybe I'm just not as good with all this tech stuff as I want to believe. :unsure:


Sorry for the misunderstanding. I tend to kinda go off without really thinking about the whole situtation. Really need to work on that.... :)

Well maybe it was a misunderstanding. This is the post that kinda set me off. Sometimes it's hard to tell the tone when reading.



Even if that dell Win7 disk installed and showed activated on that win8 computer it is STILL NOT a LEGAL installation UNLESS that Win8 CAME with 8PRO  (most Don't) and you took DOWNGRADE rights. 



One of the problems I have is that a lot of my questions go unanswered or I get like 2 responses and that's it. Even when it comes to issues with MBAM usually it doesn't get resolved or much effort put into helping doesn't seem to exist. For this topic I asked what downgrade rights was and got no response. Was willing to work with this if at all possible, but guess with licensing there isn't much options. The lack of helpful responses and getting things resolved on this forum is frusterating which is why I don't post much anymore as it seems to be a waste of time.
