Slideshow: Install Windows 8 Enterprise for a free evaluation

Of course, you'll encounter a UAC and will have to work thru it

You'll then see a User Account Control window, like the one shown. To continue, click Yes and wait for the Download Manager to install. Again, be patient as it will take a few moments before you will see anything transpire.

I have no need for Win8 Enterprise, though I'll move from Win7 to Win8 eventually. Is there anything in Evaluation version of Win8 Enterprise that's not in Win8 Standard or Win8 Pro that I could tuck away to use when I get Standard or Pro?

"Furthermore, there is no way to upgrade from the evaluation to a real Windows 8 version. Your only option is to trash the installation." Yikes

...like messages in Mission Impossible, the evaluation is locked down and will self destruct in 90 days. ;-)
