Just ordered a "blank/clean" laptop and will be buying a windows 8 upgrade disc. Is it possible to install it on my blank Hard Drive?

  1. It is possible, however it won't activate correctly. What I have found that works sometimes is installing a copy of Vista/7, then upgrading with the upgrade disk and activating that way.
    Good luck.

  3. I've used a windows 7 repair disc for a clean install...but there seems to be a lot of conflicting info when it comes to windows 8. I don't just wanna go buy a windows 8 upgrade disc to find out it doesn't work.
