I figured that it might be easier since I'd just have to buy a new flash drive instead of trying to get a new optical drive. I also heard you can just torrent the files for the OS and then buy the license key to make it all legal. Is that all I really have to do? And it just confused me because at the same time the stuff I was reading mentioned making sure not to buy a license key for the upgrade and making sure it's for the actual Windows 8.
Yes. Windows has a program that essentially turns torrents into OSes. I have and do use the USB booted from the BIOS. It's definitely easier and I find finding a USB is nicer than DVDs - I tend to lose/break/scratch DVDs. If I still had the guide my friend gave me I'd link it - but it's for Windows 7 Ultimate. I'd PM Henreh since even though it's technically 'legal' with your Key, I still think discussing torrents like that is a no-no.

But yes Kevin, it definitely can/will work.
