    Depends what you're trying to do. If you are buying 8 to upgrade it's probably cheapest to buy the upgrade version from a store on disk and create USB install from disk

    If you have Win 8 and want to re-install and have a valid product key try this download link (It's from a Pro Upgrade)

    (Let me know if it works, you'll need your product key to download)
  2. I borrowed a friends optical drive and just installed it from the disc. Thanks for the responses :D
