    so do i install win 8 then use the toolkit?

    EDIT: would it be easier to upgrade from my current win 7?

    I would do a fresh and clean install only. Upgrade would need quite a bit more time and also could end up that some apps didn't working after! To clear the mess maybe would need some other and not so short time!
