  1. First of all, did you buy the windows 8 dvd or just the upgrade key? I believe that you might have to buy a new key, as seen by this post: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-windows_install/product-key-accidently-used-for-two-pc-installs/a19091e8-b8a7-4da7-a412-5548732b2010

    You need to take it off your laptop , then use the automated phone option within windows to activate it on your desktop.
