Okay. Currently, I have Windows 7 64-bit installed on my laptop. I have licenses for Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit. I want to dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 (64-bit), so I'm going to install my 32-bit Windows XP license on my laptop (dual booting with 7), then upgrade XP to 8. However, the website SEEMS to indicate that I have to purchase a disc for an upgrade like this, where I'm going from 32-bit XP to 64-bit Windows 8.
I want to know two things:
1. Is that correct?
2. Why? Can't I just download the software, create a bootable USB drive, and boot from that to install Windows 8?
I'd really like to just get the download, not a disc, because I don't wanna have to pay an extra 30 bucks!
