So you're telling me it is attached to this computer I'm currently on with no way of transferring it?
Actually I'm not saying that. Think about the word "UPGRADE," it means you need to have a previous version to upgrade from
. If you uninstall your Win8 Pro UPGRADE from your old computer, you can use it to UPGRADE another computer's existing
OS to Windows 8 Pro.
So, do you have a qualifying previous version of Windows, so that you can use your Win8 Pro Upgrade on your new computer, that's the question. In most cases, the person had an OEM-licensed Windows that is
permanently married to the original computer. Since it's not OK to transfer OEM licenses, you're left with nothing to base your Win8 Pro upgrade on. You might pull it off anyway, but if your goal is a legit license, that's not kosher.
The easy solution is to pick up a full-version Win8 System Builder and be done with it. No previous version needed, and it's OK to transfer System Builder to your next computer without these entanglements.
That's quite disappointing.
For $200, it might be disappointing. For $40, it was a smokin' deal
