i need some help.
I am on the Windows 8 Release Preview. I ran the Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Assistant and it says all green! just buy the online download for $39.99.
If I buy that. Will I be able to do a clean install of Windows 8 Pro on my PC? or not?
No I don't have a windows 7 license.

If you don't have a licence how are you using Windows now?

The "upgrade key" is actually a retail key, so:
Unofficially: the key can be used with MSDN ISO's, MS wouldn't clarify on this, but it has been reported and confirmed by many users,
Officially: A PCBeta guy has asked MS China Customer Service, the key can be transfered to other machine(s), you can check with MS at your location.
I have a PC that has Windows 8 Release Preview installed. The computer has never experienced any other, earlier version of Windows. Are you guys 100% sure I can buy the $39.99 upgrade and have a fully activated, legal licensed RTM copy of Windows 8 Pro?
Thanks for clarification regarding the option to install on a clean drive, but it seems kind of too beautiful to be true to upgrade a release candidate to pro
