    Make sure you have enough free disk space. If you're currently running Windows 8, you need 3,000 MB of available space to install the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1, and 3,850 MB of available space to install the 64-bit version of Windows 8.1. On a Windows RT device, you need 2250 MB of available disk space to install Windows RT 8.1. For more info, see Tips to free up drive space on your PC
  2. How large is the OS to download if you don't have Windows 8? For instance you can buy Windows 8.1 Pro for Students for 70 dollars.

    "Important: Windows 8.1 Pro full version is for Windows 7 users only. Currently running Windows Vista or XP? First upgrade to Windows 8 Pro Upgrade – Student Offer. Upon installation you can update to 8.1 for free."

    Now in the comments on the very own MS website it is said that you can download this and put it onto a flashdrive or burn it onto a disk to use it on a fresh computer. My question is, how large of a download is the full W8.1 Pro OS?
