Welcome to the forum inou81. My wife said windows was better but after a year she tried windows again on someone else's laptop. She said she would prefer to go with out a computer than use windows again.

Does anyone have a solution to Windows 8/8.1 and first generation i5's like the 520m? My wife's old laptop finally started dying and I'm trying to replace it with an HP 8440p that has the Intel integrated graphics. Hey...
I am a msdn user and am trying to upgrade my laptop OS from Windows 8 to Windows Pro by going to Get more features with Windows 8 and trying to key in Windows 8.1 Pro N VL (x64) - DVD (English) product key obtained from there.
I keep getting the error - This key wont work, check it and try again.
What I have is a brand new laptop Inspiron 15R series.
