Can I install windows 8 pro on my Yoga 13 ?

2013-02-13, 6:44 AM



I have a windows 8 pro version, and for proffessional raisons I want to install it on my yoga. It will not be a problem ? All drivers for this are available on download ? 



Solved! See the solution

There is no difference in Win8 standard vs. pro other than the features.

It would not accept my corporate key, so I bought the license key from Amazon.com (Microsoft is not only more expensive, but they also do not provid digital key download) and applied it.  I forgot the exact application, but it has to do with adding features to WIndows 8.


Do note that hte update fails for many people, including myself.  You'll need to disable & stop the Nitro PDF services, particullary the licensing one, reboot and try again.  There is a thread on here you should find through a search.  I just removed NitroPDF as I had no interest to use it.  I much prefer PDF Xchange and full Acrobat Pro if required.

Yeah, just do the Anytime Upgrade.  All you do is enter your key and it is upgraded to Pro.  No need to reinstall anything or install different drivers.  Couldn't be simpler.  I bought a $15 upgrade key for mine.
