Windows 7: Upgrading to Windows 8 Standard

Upgrading to Windows 8 Standard

Hi folks,

Sorry for the noobness, but I'm contemplating upgrading to Windows 8 Standard but don't want an OEM version but a version that is not tied to the motherboard. I've checked Amazon but they all seem OEM. Where can I purchase a retail version? Is this version now known as the Upgrade version, and can the Upgrade version be clean installed over Windows 7?

Thanks.
