The following step by step guide will help you in installing the all new Windows 8 onto your system:

Upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 8

You can run Upgrade Assistant without purchasing or installing Windows 8.

The best way to tell if your hardware, apps, and connected devices are ready to upgrade is to download and run Upgrade Assistant, which scans them and tells you if there is anything you'll need to do before or after upgrading.
