Windows 8.1 pro product key finder - Free Download
I downloaded Windows 8. My understanding was that in doing so, a new product key would be generated. Can someone help me out with this? Was I mistaken and do I use the product key I have for Windows 8?
There is no longer any sticker with the product key. When you upgrade to the final version of the free Windows 8. Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help. If you are taking advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 8. If I understand you correctly you downloaded or are trying to download from a Microsoft Web site. That download is for those that have to purchase Windows 8. Hope this helps and if you need further assistance post and we will be glad to assist you. The above opinion is mine and mine alone and doesn't necessarily reflect that of Microsoft, it's employees, or any other member of this forum.
If you have installed Windows 8 using its own key and then upgraded to Windows 8. If in the future you need to reinstall you cannot load Windows 8. If you want to avoid that make sure you create and save a system image. A system image recovery onto the same computer will not require the key to be entered, neither will a refresh or reset install on an OEM system.
This has been discussed many times on here and there is no shortcut. Microsoft will not issue a key to allow direct install as this would then be a free license to install it on a second computer. Tell us about your experience with our site.

I need to give some additional information. My laptop came with Windows 7 pre-installed. It was produced just prior to the release of Windows 8. I found out that I had purchased my computer within a window of time that allowed me to get a free copy of Windows 8. I took advantage of this and went ahead and installed Windows 8.
I have the product key for that. When I downloaded and installed Windows 8. This is the product key I'm looking for so if something goes wrong and I need to reinstall Windows I'll have the correct product key to enter. I have the same problem. The key revealed by Belarc is the old Windows 8 key which will not work when you try to create media for Windows 8.
This will be needed if at some time you need to do a repair. In reply to jameswil5's post on November 25, The keyword is "WHERE" in case you misunderstand my question and tell me an answer that does not have anything to do with the question.
No key needed when you download from the store. The problem this is causing us is that to do any repair or recovery you need installation media. To create a recovery DVD or thumb drive, you have to have a Windows 8. How do we obtain a key? I suppose we could contact Microsoft Support when we have a problem but that would be unnecessary if we had a key.
