Install windows 8 on new pc w/o OS or CD?

So i'm gonna build a new computer, and i got a product code from microsoft for windows 8 pro. But since i didn't get any cd from them, i won't be able to install the OS on the computer! I've heard you can burn it to a cd, or to a USB, but the problem is that i only has a macbook pro 2011, making me unsure if i can even download windows and put it on a usb/cd. I don't want to waste my expensive code by giving it to my mac without using it, so i'm clueless.
Help?

    Is it a full install code or a upgrade code ?

    It is an installation code.
  3. You can always ask a friend that has a Windows PC to make the DVD for you. Another way to do it would be to download the ISO installer instead of using the upgrade advisor. Then just burn the ISO to a DVD.
