Re: windows product key

Hi again,

 

The key (or equivalent) is embedded in the UEFI BIOS.  It isn't normally required that a user access it.

 

Why do you ask?

Re: windows product key

If you had 8 Pro originally it should activate automatically.

 

[edit]  I see from your other post you had Win 7 Pro.  If it was via downgrade from Win 8 Pro (not downgraded by you but sold that way) it should still activate 8 automatically.  If it was a "pure" Win 7 Pro install, you don't have an 8 key.

 

[more edit] That model was Win 7 via downgrade from 8.  Should activate 8 Pro automatically.
