I've managed to get Windows 8 Pro Upgrade on the cheap and i have access to 8.1 so i figured now would be a good time to take the plunge but have a couple of questions.
My PC uses a VLK (KMS is it?) Windows 7 key that i got from work, am i ok to install Windows 8 RETAIL over this? I've don't want it to shut off the W7 key or anything like that..
What is the best approach to installing.. A clean install of W7 and then 8 over the top, then the 8.1 update? or is it OK to install 8/8.1 over my current installation which already has things installed.. i do like to keep my computers clean so i don't want lots of rubbish left behind from W7, or will it completely erase my partition either way?
I generally use my computer for the following software:
Gaming/Steam and love using Steam Big Picture
XBOX controller with official wireless adapter
Plex Media Server and clien
VNC (for remote app and VNC access).. RealVNC
.. Am i likely to run into problems with any of this?
