I dont know if anyone already posted about this loophole.Microsoft had announced that those who bought a Windows 7 PC between June 2, 2012, and January 31, 2013 are eligible for a further discount and can actually upgrade for a meagre Rs699. Microsoft letting users with pirated Windows 7/XP to upgrade to Windows 8 for rs 699.
1. Go to this official site Windows Upgrade Offer - Landing Page ,even if you are on pirated windows it does not matter.
2. The WindowsUpgradeOffer page requires people to enter some extremely basic details about their Windows 7 PC purchase. It neither asks for a serial number nor Windows 7 key,put date of purchase after 2nd june.
3. Once the details are submitted, user will get a confirmation email about the registration.
4. Within a few minutes, another email with the promo code is sent to the same email address.
5. This promo code can be used to purchase the Windows 8 Pro edition via the Windows 8 Upgrade assistant app for a nominal fee of rs 699.
Finally i think it was intentional from microsoft to get more legit users and to sell more win 8. They already know this very well. A very big enterprise cannot skip a thing like this but they are intentionally allowing this thing.

Yes. just proceed with the upgrade assistant and it will give you 3 options:

1. install now
2. install on a usb stick
3. install on a dvd

You can select either 2nd or 3rd option it will load the iso image in the respective media and the upgrade assistant will automatically close
