Windows 7 to 8 Upgrade

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I had some question about going from 7 to 8 with upgrade option. I was thinking of buying this http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-3ZR-00001-Windows-8-Upgrade/dp/B00AM9YXTS/ref=sr_1_7?s=software&ie=UTF8&qid=1383329994&sr=1-7&keywords=Windows+8+Pro+upgrade and was wondering how does works do I get a serial key so that I can do a clean install or just upgrade from inside 7, both? I have retail 7 would I be able to use this upgrade on another build when I'm done with this one?

Hello with the upgrade version there designed purely to be non fresh cause it requires a base system such as XP,7.Although there is ways to fresh install i have done it many of times by having say windows 7 installed or refreshing over a current 8 install. You need the base system installed to do a custom install i toyed with fresh drive and it kicks up a stink. I bought my upgrade through the Website so i only received a key. With that upgrade you will receive a disk and key although purchasing through Microsoft website you are able to burn a copy of the ISO anyhow. I hope this helps anymore questions just ask =]
