I was running Windows 8, but long story short the OS crashed and I had no access to my product key to reinstall it so now I'm running Ubuntu. I'm starting to get a feel for Ubuntu, and it's really not too bad, but I miss Windows and would like to switch back. I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for it though, so I'm hoping to take advantage of my student discount before my college kicks me off there system since I graduated. The only thing I can find with a discount, though, is this http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Windows-8-Pro-Upgrade-%E2%80%93-Student-Offer/productID.264954100. It's the Windows 8 Pro Upgrade. Will I be able to use this to install Windows 8 from a non-Windows OS? I don't want to buy it only to realize that I need a Windows OS to use it. My machine has a Windows Vista OEM, but it's near impossible to find a legit Windows Vista ISO to go back to that and upgrade to Windows 8. Thanks for all the help.
