Hi ifhope,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Your product key is embedded on your board so that it should automatically activate once you have it online as long as you installed the same version that came with your machine. Some would need to run Windows update first and some restarts.

 

Your systemboard with part number 90002745 (Mb Viwz1 Mb W8s 76 Gv 2G B) do have Windows 8 Standard edition. Try to run Windows update first and restart as needed.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards
