I have a sealed copy of Windows 8.0 Pro(64bit) laying around somewhere and I want to build a new pc soon enough, thinking that would be nice avoid switching to Win 10(mainly due spying and less control overy my system). My concern is that what I have heard newer CPU-s(also motherboards) wont support anything other than Windows 10 ( Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake), I mean there are rumors that you can make certain older OS work with newer CPU-s but there is lack of information about Win 8.0 on the internet, therefore I came for asking your help. Please anyone can tell me, what is the newest CPU, GPU etc I can go with if I intend to choose Win 8.0 as my OS! Thank you very much
Does anyone know where one might be able to download an ISO file for Windows 8 Pro x64? I am not searching for Windows 8.1, which I know is readily attainable from Microsoft, but for the original release of Windows 8. I have a genuine retail product key for the Pro edition, but no ISO file to burn to DVD or write to USB flash drive from which I can install Windows 8. Microsoft used to offer a Setup utility to download an ISO file or write the operating system to a USB flash drive, but the company pulled the link presumably after it terminated support for Windows 8. The Wayback Machine archived the utility and, while it runs, it is not functional, as it apparently cannot connect to the Internet to download the necessary files. Please note that I am not looking for an ISO of the 90-day evaluation of the Enterprise edition. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
