Just bought boxed versions of win 8 pro upgrade.

Will I have to input and invalidate my old XP and Vista licenses to do a clean install? Seems clear on download version, unless you burn off to separate media for later install, it does. Not clear on download version when burned for later install.

I know it is early in the release but could someone clarify this for me, and I am sure many others with the same question?

Should be good for later install, incenses are not time sensitive...never been. But this is Win8 and Microsoft we're forced to deal with, so who knows - right. Ring 'em up and ask.
