The only Full version of Windows available for purchase is the System Builder version (OEM) You will have to purchase it at an online retailer such as New Egg or Amazon. Remember System comes without any Microsoft support and must be install with a "clean" install. Hope this helps and if you have any other issues or questions post and we will be glad to help you solve them

Full version Windows 8

There are no full retail versions of Windows 8. If you need a full version, you will need to purchase the Windows 8 Pro OEM from New Egg. This requires a custom clean install.
