Yeah i checked the link out this morning i was having problems with and it actually worked. I started install before i left for work, saw the computer restart and then come back on and had the new windows logo and said installing then the little circle stopped spinning at 52% and was like that for 10min and then i had to leave for work.

So hopefully it didnt mess up and freeze. Not sure if i could just power off my PC and start it back up and try again or what. Ill be checking back at lunch to see how it goes.

I have heard it is taking a while to get the MC keys.

Also, you must use the MC key before Jan 31 2013 for it to be valid.

When I first read this the title showed up as "& Windows ME..." lol SWEET! Windows ME! Yyyyeeesss! best OS ever!'

It'll be interesting to see the personal reviews of win8. Definitely interested...We'll see if Nvidia can roll out some great new drivers that somehow boost windows 8 performance...

I received my key about 15sec after purchasing through the little upgrade assistant program.

Im having a problem though, When installing windows 8. It goes through the process and restarts the computer. Then i have the W8 logo and the little circle of dots...always freezes before complete. The first time like i said above it was 52% now it was at 39%. This is during the Readying Devices part. Not sure what to do, might have to give it a couple days. my computer is only 6 months old and its pretty damn good, so I dont think it has anything to do with my system.
