    How to Upgrade to Windows 8 Pro?

    Is upgrading to windows 8.1 pro as easy as inserting the new cd key into the 'add feature' option? I did this and it was fine for 2 weeks. However, just today I saw that windows ping me that "key is being used by another PC". Now I do want to note that this cd key was previously installed on my PC but I already formatted that PC and install windows 7 instead a few months back. So my question is:
    1) If I should be able to successfully install windows 8 pro without reinstalling windows, I will contact microsoft to clear out my cd key usage
    2) If the only way to upgrade is to reinstall windows using UEFI USB, I'll figure out how to create this UEFI USB
    3) should I call ASUS and ask them if they can help me with this?

    any feedback is appreciated, thanks!

    Was your Windows 8 key an OEM version, or retail? If it was retail, then just ring MS and tell them you've moved the OS to another PC.

    If it was OEM, you can't move it, sorry. Also, if you took the downgrade route for Windows 7, your Windows 8 key is still used.

    ASUS aren't going to be able to help you with this, it's an MS thing.

    It was retail and I pretty much formatted that HDD and used another HDD to install Windows 7 on that PC. I'll give MS a ring, thanks!

    As long as you didn't use your Windows 8 key to downgrade to Windows 7, you'll be fine.
