So my old Core 2 Duo CPU finally bit the dust. This was originally a Vista OEM license, upgraded to Win7 Home Premium, upgraded to Win8 Pro.
I went ahead and ordered a nice Ivy Bridge CPU/motherboard/RAM to replace it with (should arrive some time today). I am a bit worried about the install though. I'd love to do a clean install of Windows 8 and use my upgrade key. Is it going to let me? Of course I did not create install media and instead opted for the web setup. I really don't want to have to install Vista first just to wipe it out. That would add at least an hour to what is going to be a long night anyway.
