    I just got my dreamspark windows 8 64bit pro key, and I have a couple of questions.

    1. Can I use that key to upgrade from windows 7? I'm too lazy to do a backup of everything and do a fresh install :p :tooth:

    2. How many license, ie.. computers can I install this key on? I want to at least install it on my desktop and laptop, then make a back up of the licenses to reinstall if needed.

    3. How can I make a custom windows 8 dvd with that key and activation file, so that I can just pop in the dvd and it install and then activates on it's own? No matter how many reformat I have to do to both of my machines?

    I saw the guide for the AIO with the WMC but I don't have WMC so how do I do it with just the 64bit pro?

    So in dreamspark, I should get the debug keys as well? that trick by ambidav only uses wmc, I want to make a non-wmc pre-activated pro. How do I do that?

    s1ave77, I'm sorry but could you elaborate more? I am totally new at this so I have no clue how to make one.

    I tried to add the debugs 32 bit and 64bit, it won't let me. I tried to add the retail 32bit it won't let me either. It saids this:

    The item cannot be added to your cart because you have already ordered this item (or a related item) and cannot order it again. You can view your previous order by clicking Your Account above. Download orders can be re-downloaded from there.

    Did you think about other methods offered on MDL? KMS or the way over KMS to legalize with WMC key?
