    OK - this is seriously screwed up by MS or I missed the boat completely........Here's the issue:

    I purchased, got my serial and downloaded the files for setup, 2.63GB via the Upgrade assistant. Now there's the first problem as the 64-bit files are supposed to be 3.3GB.

    As if that is not enough, all attempts at install proved useless, probably because of the file discrepancy.

    OK - What now?

    Google advises that I redownload the install files - good advice? One would think so, would you not?

    Think again.

    I cannot redownload any files as all attempts to run the upgrade assistant prompts me to purchase the product again prior to getting to the download. I have already purchased the product but cannot download the setup files.

    Does anybody have any advice/ideas for me where I can download the setup files for Win8 64-bit again without having to spend another 25?

    Honestly, I have spent the better part of an afternoon on this and am none the wiser.

    Not sure if 3.3GB for 64 bit is correct. I downloaded 64 bit with upgrade assistant and the ISO is 2,828,864KB. I doubled checked with the now installed OS and it is indeed 64 bit.

    64 bit is not 3.3gb. There is a torrent copy out there that is, but it uses less compression.

    mine was about 2.8 gb.

    I ran into the same issue trying to install it after I replaced my hard drive with SSD. I ended up create a boot-able disk and installed it on boot up. They give you a choice of fresh install or keep your current setting.
