  1. Microsoft has an upgrade assistant for download. It tells you about your hardware and your software.
  2. Windows 8 work in u r system.no problem.
    Windows 8 transformation Pack is just for fun only its not full os.
  3. Note: though I would pull back on the on board graphic memory since I'm pretty sure its using your system memory. Anything more than 512 it over kill and even than is a big much unless you playing some very old games the require it. I t would be better to have 3.5gig for use by windows.

  5. Yes, your computer is able to run Windows 8 or 8.1, but what you installed on your current Windows is just a third party software which makes your older Windows like 7 or XP to look like Windows 8. You should get a real Windows 8 distribution.
  6. Yes you can run it, windows 8 is less system demanding then windows 7. It may be slow a little bit because of that onboard GPU.
  7. Windows 8.1 should work just fine on your system, but it will be a little slower than getting a new computer.

    Ive got windows 8 to run on worst specs then that, im sure he will do fine, maybe just a few issues but nothing major.
  9. Your specs are low for windows 8. I suggest you to format using a windows xp disk. Else your computer may lag even while doing daily stuff.
