Windows 8 product key from Bios not accepted

HP Pavilion 15-N010tx Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hello All,

 

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:

Error while entering original key.jpg

 

 

Current activate windows page: Activae windows page.jpg

 

Product key details from BIOS using ShowkeyPlus.

Old key details from show key plus.png

 

Please let me know how i can activate windows using this key from bios.

 

Thanks in advance,

Vivek M

Hi, Vivek:

 

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...

 

Y9NXP-XT8MV-PT9TG-97CT3-9D6TC

 

Then follow the rest of the steps you know about from the other post.
