In the September issue (18:9) you have a very interesting explanation of how to create a Windows 8 thumb drive (The Ultimate thumb drive toolkit). I see it as a perfect method to test Win 8 without having to actually install it (shudder).
However, your process supposes a Win 8 installation disc, or iso. I bought the Win 8 upgrade for 39$ back in January. How would I go about creating the Win 8 thumbdrive ? Would it work to install Win 7 to the drive, according to your guide, and then installing the upgrade over it ? If only Win 8 has the capacity to run from a thumb drive, this may not be possible.
I am sure I am not the only owner of the upgrade who would like to use your guide to try out the OS without danger.

It may, but if you just want to try an OS, you can always use a virtual machine like VirtualBox.
