You need a Windows 8 Professional Product Key to install a legitimate version, let alone Activate it!
Unless you mean 'can you upgrade Windows 7 Home Basic or Home Premium to Windows 8', then the answer is 'yes'. You can check by running the Upgrade Assistant.

Tom's Hardware forums do not support any form of software piracy. To use Windows (any version), you must purchase a license. There is no free version.

If you can't afford Windows, then consider using one of the many free Linux distros that are readily available.
