    Ed, I found a little trick that may come in handy.
    If all the upgrade machines are the same such as Home or Pro and are all 64 bit or 32 bit you can get by with one download by burning it to DVD. Saves on bandwidth.

    Another thing I found out about the Upgrade from Windows 7 is that you can’t install from booting the disk. The Win 7 COA doesn’t register when entered. It has to be installed from a running updated Windows 7 OS.

    Windows 8.0 and 8.1 may be different in that most of those the COA is imbedded into the BIOS chip and don’t have a COA sticker.

    And by the way, do a Custom install to get rid of most of the phone home goodies.
