Upgrading to Windows 8 was rather different to previous versions of the operating system – this time it could be done entirely online. You may well have decided to keep upgrade costs as low as possible by not buying a backup DVD. Here’s how you can create your own.

Does anyone know if the product key is embedded into the install media, or does the installation prompt you for the key? I can't remember what it does from my install a few months ago. Basically, can I use this media on a machine that has the key embedded in the BIOS?

Generally the key is separate in most cases. I'm guessing that manufacturers have a way to bundle the key, but not if you install it yourself. I could be wrong on the downloadable version.
