I have just recently finished building a pc and installed Windows 8 onto it, problem is I used the disk on a previous system so I cannot activate Windows on the new pc. So I wanted to ask if I were to purchase new Windows 8 software, would that solve the product key issue I have? I've also hear about problems with Windows 8 on pc's with no previous Windows software on it, so any help anyone can give me would be great right now. Thanks in advance.

Yes you do need a new OS and it will solve your problem. Erase the hard disk and reformat it before you do the install.
AND you cannot use the cheap upgrade, you now have to buy a full oem...
All the best Brett
All right, least there is a store close by that I know has oem's for sale, too bad they're already closed for the weekend, oh well I'll just check Monday I guess.
