buy windows 8 pro key after installed it over windows 7

I have 2 laptops with windows 7. I purchased one windows 8 pro key and installed it in one laptop and thn it starts giving problem in wifi as windows driver not available for intel 5100. To check if it works properly i installed windows 8 pro in other laptop using key of first laptop,  which working properly. Now to activate windows 8 pro on 2nd laptop do i have to purchase key after installing windows 7 first? ( When i tried to buy key with windows 8 pro installed it not giving upgrade offer and asking for more price.)

I don't know why it does that and Microsoft does not provide any concrete explanation, but considering that Windows 8 Pro increate in price after January 31st to $200, its still a good deal.
