Sorry previous post left out the word UPGRADE.

Can you dual boot Windows 8 using the UPGRADE version.? Some sources say yes and others no! Obviously one of them is correct but WHOM.? Must you have the full OEM/full version in order to dual boot?

Hi robwin I have used the upgrade version (both Windows 8 Pro Versions) and have been able to dual boot (with Windows 7) my desktop and laptop

If you mean - will it work as dual boot yes it will. If you mean can you do it under the terms of lic - no no no - you only have to look at the lic - it is now quite simple to read not like some of the ones in the past.
