Windows 7: Windows 8 doesn't show my specific edition

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Windows 8 doesn't show my specific edition

Im running Windows 8 which came pre installed with my hp notebook, but all I see in system properties is "Windows 8" and I typed "winver" into run and all I see is "Windows 8" and nothing about an edition

I need to know this because I am getting an SSD and will need to make a Windows DVD so I can do a clean install onto it.

Windows 10 64 bit

There is a separate forum just for Windows 8. May be better to post there, since it is a Win 8 issue.

That's because that IS what edition you have. There are 4 editions: Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows RT.
