I have a machine currently running Windows 8.1. It's starting to run a little slow and in need to a clean install of Windows. As I only have an upgrade licence for Windows 8, doing a clean install (without re installing Windows 7, then upgrading to 8) is a bit of a pain. I have used upgrade media to do a clean install before but had problems activating using the upgrade key.
I remember that Windows 8 now has a reset option, which after looking online sounds to be exactly the same as doing a clean install anyway. Does anyone know if this is the case or if there are any advantages of doing a clean install using the install media rather than just using the 'reset' option in Windows 8?
