I want to activate the windows 8 again, but don't find the product key. The microsoft support detect the product key isn't into the BIOS. Please help me to get my windows 8 product key back Thank.
It's in there. You likely are trying to reinstall a different version of Windows 8. It has to be exactly the version that shipped on the laptop new... 8 or 8.1, Pro or Standard and I believe 32 or 64 bit. Where did you get the Windows 8 install media you are using?
