How to upgrade Thinkpad Yoga 12 Windows 7 to Windows 8

Hi,

I purchased a Thinkpad Yoga 12 running Windows 7 with an optional upgrade to Windows 8.

I've downloaded the windows 8 files but I'm not really sure what to do next. I've got a directory with 199 files of various types, .imz, .7z, .cri. 

 

What do I do now?

 

Thanks in advance...

Hi

 

Do you have any specific need to update to Windows 8? Because I would suggest to try to skip the 8 and go directly to Windows 10.

 

To install Windows 8 or 10, the most easy way is to use the MS Windows Media Tool.

Get it from here:

Thanks,
Why would you recommend 10 over 8?

Hi

 

It is a personal opinon.

 

I disliked how Windows 8 used the "windows button" to show you all the icons like it was a tablet while you are using a PC. It was sad for me to try to force me used a tablet GUI on a desktop PC.  On Windows 10 I think MS improved that setting a tablet mode and a desktop mode.

 

Also on Windows 10 the windows button works more like Windows 7 instead of Windows 10 when you are in desktop mode.
