Windows 8 Upgrade Screenshots

Microsoft have made several improvements to the Windows 8 Upgrade process, in an attempt to make it as simple as possible.  Below you can see the screenshots I took when I upgraded my main Windows 7 Professional based machine to Windows 8 Pro.

Overall my upgrade experience was fairly painless although I had two problems, one of which could have been quite painful:

(i) when I tried to upgrade within Windows 7, it allowed me to download the new Windows 8 Pro files, and then told me I didn’t have the necessary 20GB free rather than upfront

(ii) I think the failed upgrade above somehow screwed up my HDD and it wasn’t detected in the upgrade process.  To fix I had to put my HDD in another machine to fix, which meant wiping the disk.  This would have been a disaster if I didn’t have a backup of all my files.
