I have an Acer Aspire V5 which came loaded with Windows 8, later updated to 8.1. I use the computer not only for surfing, but also for taking classes online for paralegal. My classes sometimes have downloads they say are necessary or helpful, and it has caused some issues in general, like certain things not working properly if at all. With only four weeks left til the semester is completed, the desire is there for a clean wipe and installing an 8.1 Pro (so I can practice my office work during the summer).
now the question- on all the ads for 8.1 Pro I have seen, it says it can only be installed on computers that came with Windows 7. Why does it matter?
I want my own disc, in case I need it in the future. Sure I can download it, but it seems every time I download from the net I have problems.
