to upgrade some win xp pro machines to windows 7 pro, we are told to buy the windows 8 upgrade open license, FQC-06457.  we are told in order to do the upgrade, the existing win xp pro OS has to be installed first on the machine, which don't really prefer this way as the system may sometimes not that stable. Anyone has used the windows 8 upgrade license FQC-06457, can advise if possible to do a reformat and just install the new OS instead of having to preinstall the windows xp again?
