    Can i re-use my windows 8 DVD?


    Hi, i bought windows 8 on my PC. Now i want to buy it for a second PC but i dont want to sit through the painfully slow download process all over again(I have a very slow connection). I installed by DVD, is it possible for me to re-use that DVD with another product key?

    Hello aayushagra, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you can use the same Windows 8 DVD to install on any computer. You would just need to enter a different Windows 8 product key per installation.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Thank you Brink, though one follow up question, i only know buying it from the upgrader, is it possible for me to buy a copy without the upgrader for obvious reasons?

    No worries. You can do a clean install with a Windows 8 upgrade.
