There was a bug on their site that skipped verification of your cd-key for win7, now it's fixed and you have to enter your legit win7 key
Just did it with IE and it never asked me for a Win7 key. When I did it with firefox, it did ask.

This thread reminded me to check out my campus MSDNAA account. It has Windows 8 Pro on there with keys for free. Just a reminder to those with access!
Thanks for this information!!! Just saved me $15.

I have a PC with a Windows 7 installation that's considered "not genuine". I had an issue where someone sold me a key that they said was legit, but MS shut it down about a year later.

Anyhow, will this install over the top and turn my install into a "genuine" copy of Windows 8?

I ran the upgrade advisor and it went through the whole check, allowed me to purchased and started downloading, then started preparing files.

I canceled it so that I can back up first, but doesn't anyone know if it will work?

That's exactly what Microsoft wants to do on the day they launch their new OS... harass all the early adopters for taking an unwarranted $25 discount. Talk about PR Armageddon.

Just have a boxed version or another purchased key ready. It will ask you to activate, just put in the purchased key and you will be all set.

Great deal, doesn't really prove you bought your system during reduced upgrade price time. I don't see whats stopping anybody from using this to install over a genuine Windows 7 installation. I ran the upgrade advisor only to get a key. When I'm ready to upgrade I'll download an iso and burn it. I have a proof of purchase with an order # if it doesn't activate I can phone Microsoft.

I've done the same thing with Windows 7 and Office 2010 (bought the key for a download and then used an iso burnt onto a DVD instead of the web installer) and both times it activated no problem.
