I ran the upgrade assistant and it showed me a list of what is and is not compatible w/the new OS. I proceeded to the next screen and it suggests the upgrade to windows 8 pro. My issue is that the current version of windows 7 is not genuine. Does the upgrade assistant not look to see if my OS is genuine or not? If I buy the upgrade version and try to install it, will it fail due to the current license not being genuine? I built this system myself, but I cannot find a system builder disc w/o going through amazon.com to get it and I'd really like to avoid them if I can.
