Your best bet is to start the 8 install from within Windows and run an upgrade. That will reinstall it as an upgrade and allow the code to work.

I know it sucks but its the only way to install a upgrade without installing a previous OS first.

It wont take long but should resolve your issue as that's what I have done in the past with upgrade versions.
