I'm part of a pioneering project to test Surface Pro 3's at our company. However, the IT dept wants to ship the Surface Pro 3 with Windows 7. I'm requesting Windows 8 be installed instead.
I don't have Domain admin rights.
If they ship it with Win7, I was hoping to image it, then upgrade it to Windows 8, but I'm concerned I won't be able to attach it to the active directory.
Will domain/AD authorization carry over to Windows 8 when I upgrade?
