Hi,

Got my new PC, Black Pearl..

On the back there is small squared sticker "Windows 8"
but didn't get any Windows 8.1 (digital license) product key or can't see it anyware, nor was sent to me via email.

Could you help me with this?

I got the Windows 8.1 DVD but if I load it, looks like it wants to reinstall Windows 8.1 again? The DVD has no Key either.

Many thanks.

Here is the info. I have.

You shouldn't need the key. Is Windows asking you for the key? If you have a digital license it automatically pulls the license info for you to allow Windows Activation. If yours won't activate and is asking for the key, please contact tech support at 888/900-5180 or [email protected]

I am having the same issue. Periodically I get a green screen from windows requesting activation of Windows 8.1. Like the above poster I don't have the product key on my laptop, or emailed to me, nor is it on the Windows CD.

SO# 00453115 I will send an email to tech support.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply.

No I am not being asked for the key.The system works ok but when I tried to install the "ADD FEATURES", it will then ask me for the Product Key.

Maybe I am wrong I do not need the key for ADDING this features as I may have an additional cost.

Thanks for your help.

You can try some software like product finder to find back your forgotten key.

There is a way to get it via the command prompt. Be sure your running it with admin rights. Make sure you are at the c prompt it should read
C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Type in
wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

This should work on Windows 10 and 8.1.
Write down your key. It should be 25 characters long.
If this does not work or you somehow got it loaded up without putting one in. Have a tech savvy buddy who is comfortable looking in the registry. If it is not there, AND it is not sitting in your BIOS, and you lost or cannot locate the sticker or card that has the key. Then there is no EULA approved way of activating Windows.
NEVER SHARE YOUR PRODUCT KEY!! Even when you call Microsoft the will never ask for it nor allow you to tell them.
