I have installed Win 8.1 from Microsoft site , using Generic product key , obtained from HP support community solution from my previous question.
But while entering the product key from BIOS, found using the cmd command
wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey
But, when i am trying to enter this, i am getting below error:
Current activate windows page:
Product key details from BIOS using ShowkeyPlus.
Please let me know how i can activate windows using this key from bios.
Thanks in advance,

OK, it looks like all you need to do is to go back and download and create the W8.1 Single Language ISO bootable media.
If you are asked to enter a product key, use this generic W8.1 SL key...
Then follow the rest of the steps you know about from the other post.
