    Hi all
    i bought a new laptop that came with win8 preinstalled.....im not keen on it but the missus is....i want to dual boot with win7 ult for me and leave her with win8.....i used magicjellybean to pull out the key on win8 ...the question is.

    can i download a copy of win8 (if so which version ) from MS and use the key that came with the laptop ....the hdd will be wiped and formatted before the install .....hdd is set to GPT aswell which il try and change to mbr .
