Questions Regarding the Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Retail Box



I've just purchased windows 8 pro upgrade retail box & I've 2 questions regarding it upgrading from Windows 7 (x64 Bit) to Windows 8(x64 Bit) on my notebook:-


1. After upgrading from windows 7 to windows 8, Is there a limit license to how many times that I re-format my pc or is it unlimited?

2. Since I got a desktop PC (Personal use only) too, Can I install on both of them?.


Thanks In Advance.

Since you have purchased 1 licence you can use it only on 1 computer. Ideally the same license should work no matter how many times you format and reinsall Windows.


There has been couple of instances where the product key doesnt work after 3 times online activation of Windows but than you can always do activation by phone calling on 18009365700.


I hope it answered your question and it help you in future as well, incase you need further assistance feel free to send email.
