System requirements: "To install the Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro upgrade, your PC must be running Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 Consumer Preview, or Windows 8 Release Preview. Learn how to get Windows 8 on a PC not running a previous version of Windows."


Install the "Consumer Preview" (Disconnect the LAN or wireless) as the "Preview will no longer activate" and entering your consumer preview product key.


Now connect to the Internet and either buy the online download version of Windows 8 Pro or install using a retail version purchased at a local store.
