    Hi.
    Before upgrading to Windows 8, run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. It scans your current PC to see if it is ready for Windows 8 and then provides a compatibility report and optional steps for you to buy, download, and install Windows 8.

    Visit the below link to run Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/w...e-to-windows-8

    If your PC is running Windows Vista, you'll need to reinstall your apps after you upgrade.

    Thank you.
