  1. 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.

    Oh, sorry. 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.
  4. We are obligated to say that you need to get the OEM copy to legally use Windows due to you not having a legal copy to upgrade from.

    Otherwise thank you for going legit.

    Yeah, moral of the story, get the OEM version.
