Thanks More about : windows upgrade question voiidwulf October 18, 2012 12:38:39 AM I don't think an upgrade version of Windows 8 would work with a cracked Windows 7. I think it needs to confirm your serial code to install.

I thought the rule was more along the lines of not helping people get pirated software. Though he is trying to purchase a legit copy of Windows 8 so it's not that bad.

Otherwise thank you for going legit. Score 0 Best solution voiidwulf October 18, 2012 1:04:39 AM Yeah, moral of the story, get the OEM version.
