Hey guys, I'm curious to know one question. In Amazon, I found this cheap version of Windows 8 pro for only 70$. It's called " Windows 8 Pro upgrade 32/64 bit product key card with free update". This product key is required for windows 8 setup to be installed which I can download from the website. However, can I reuse this key to install it in different HDD's? Im buying it *no pirate or tricked codes* but a legit one.

It would appear to be an upgrade from Win 8 to Win 8 Pro.

Do you have a link to this?

Well no because I am using a smart phone but may you kindly search it up on Amazon? Just type this " Windows 8 product key" and it's gonna appear. It's one valued for 79$ but found it for 70$

I see one for $79.99.
That is an upgrade from Win 8 to Win 8 Pro. It requires a licensed, activated Windows 8 installation.

So here's the thing. I'm gonna install this new software on a brand new computer. Given the fact that it says I need to download the software installation on a usb and boot it from BIOS, I would get windows pro by putting the product key. Is that how it goes? Reason why is because it says you need to RUN Microsoft windows 8 installation setup the one you download from their website. Once you type the product key, it will install and once it finishes, it gives you the option to goto 8.1. Question is, since I bought this key, is it reusable when installing other computers? I heard that its possible since you bought the product key and it should be stored away safely when installing it another time

This is an upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro. It does not appear to be a standalone installation.
It needs a validated Windows 8 install first.

Ah... I see.. I thought that just by simply running the setup, your able to input the product key and let the installation come. I read the reviews on Amazon and they said the same thing as well. I know your telling me that it's an upgrade BUT the one thing I don't get is, why are people saying by simply running the setup, you input the key and you got windows 8 pro and then your givin the option of upgrading to Windows 8.1. Since I'm a Windows 7 user, its an upgrade to windows 8. That's the part tricking me

Without a link to the actual thing you bought it is hard to say. But it would appear to be an upgrade from Win 8 to Win 8 Pro.
Not from 7 to Win 8 Pro.

(reviews on Amazon are often faked)

Actually, yes. You can use that one. But you have to do it from another running PC. Win 7 or 8.
And that PC must be the same bit level (32bit or 64bit) as you want to end up on your new system.

Buy it, go to the MS link they give you, and start the upgrade process.
Early in the process, it will give you the option of 'Install now', or 'Install later with media'
This allows you to create an install DVD or USB.
DO that.

You should be good after that.
