    I have a copy of Windows XP Home Edition (case, key, cd; all authentic, key works) lying around. Once Windows 8 actually arrives; how would I go about purchasing Windows 8 for $40?

    Do I have to have XP installed on my computer, and then do an upgrade? Or do I simply give my key to Microsoft to verify if it's legit?
