Hello,

I'm downloading the windows 8.1 installer media..

Which one should i choose? I'm using the current windows that came installed with laptop (OEM)

-windows 8.1
-windows 8.1 n
-windows 8.1 r
-windows 8.1 pro
-windows 8.1 single language

I'm trying to download the single language.. is this correct?

I'd go for the first option; just Windows 8.1

Have you ever consider running "winver" OR open the properties of "computer" OR open "system information" ?
the info sits in your installed OS.

Plus, WITHOUT READING - you'll install a RETAIL version of windows and you WON'T be able to activate it properly.

Dude im just asking.. no need to be rude.. and on the last thread, the link you gave.. you need to be registered to view the download link.
i download both the single language and 8.1 only... the 8.1 only works with my serial.. so thats fine with me.. Thanks,

Oh, it's not that bad. In my opinion Vista still holds the title for the worst version of Windows, by a long, long shot! Once you get around the Windows 8 cludged-up UI (or just install Classic Shell (http://www.classicshell.net/)) it's a perfectly decent OS.

THis is mis-information. Windows 10 is not free. The UPGRADE to WIndows 10 from Windows 7, or 8.1 is free. If you do a fresh install you still have to purchase it.
