    Can this be done...?

    Upgrading the network to Windows 8 Pro and just wondered if I could do this...

    We've purchased 9 new Windows 8 machines with the windows 8 pro DVD these have been installed and work beautifully, we have also purchased the Windows 8 License keys for our remaining 20 Windows machines. My question is can I install using the existing DVD's and then use my product key from the Microsoft Licensing centre or will I have to download the .iso image from the License centre and start from scratch...?

    Any body got any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    John

    I would guess that the Windows 8 Pro licences you have with the machines will be the OEM versions. You would need to download the Volume Licence version from MS for the other machines. I may be wrong!
