I have a computer with non-genuine windows 7 (cracked with windows loader). I was thinking of buying / upgrading to Windows 8 Pro. I ran
Windows8-UpgradeAssistant.exe and was said that I can upgrade to Windows 8 Pro.
- Can I perform a clean upgrade (format and install) from my current windows 7 to windows 8?
- In future, in order to re-install Windows 8 do I need to re-install the non-genuine Windows 7 and install on top of it?
- If my hard disk crash, or I want to install on a new hard disk (clean install), do I need to install windows 7 again before upgrading to Windows 8?
- If I don't like Windows 8, can I downgrade to Windows 7 genuine?
