    The OEM/System Builder will allow you to install it on a clean drive. So will the upgrade, but that will take little haggling with the registry.

    I don't recall if you can, since i bought my copy of W8 when it was released for that $40 offer. But you do get the download, and i believe it asks which way you would like to install it, including an option to create an .iso to burn to a disc and use later.

    Anyone had any issues with IE launching? After booting Windows, or resuming from sleep, it can take upwards of 10minutes before I can launch IE successfully. I have no issues with any other piece of software that I use regularly.
