Get original iso of Windows 8 free serial key

Hi all!

I have a problem with my Dell. I tried to install Ubuntu Linux on my laptop and the installer accidentally erased my Windows preinstalled with all my data 8 and so on. Is it possible to download an iso original Windows 8 to burn it to a CD or a bootable USB and install Windows 8? I tried downloading the tool from Microsoft, but I need my serial key, which is hidden somewhere in my UEFI/BIOS. Maybe Dell can send me some iso or the link to download? Someone had a similar problem?

Thank you, Peter.

Microsoft has updated the Downloader so that it does not require a product key and gives a Windows 8.1 with update 1 that accepts product keys Windows 8.0 and 8.1 for installation both retail and OEM. It now allows choice of architecture, language and version. See here for more details:

http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/download-Microsoft-Windows-and-Office/Download-Microsoft-Windows/

The downloader requires a launch Windows operating system it's a .exe then its best to use a Windows based computer. If this isn't the case, you must download Windows 7 and install without a VirtualBox/VMWare Player product key, and then use it to download Windows 8.1. It's easier to just use another computer.

    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

  • How can I get the iso of Windows 7 official since March 2014?

    Hello.

    I have a laptop win-7-pre-installed, served with a proper key.

    But now it runs with a little illegal after years of careless use.

    Now I am trying fix it back only to find there is nowhere to get the official iso files.

    Yes, there are so many kind recommendations which offer anything useful, but darn links CONTENT of DIGITAL RIVER.

    only THEY ARE DEAD.

    Hope to find alternatives...

    Thank you.

    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

    If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.

    This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...

    For Dell, press F8 on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.

    For HP, press F11 directly after switching on the device

    For LG, press F11 directly after switching on the device

    For Toshiba, press and hold "0" BEFORE and during the power upward

    For Acer, press and hold ALT + F10, as soon as you see the logo

    For Asus, press F9, as soon as you see the Asus logo.

    For Samsung, press F4 to the power upward...

    For Fujitsu, press the F8 key directly after the power

    Advent, restart your computer. Then, press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting system recovery"

    Sony VAIO, reboot and press "F8" or "F10" repeatedly until the screen "Advanced Boot Options".

    If your recovery partition does not work, you can try the following below:

    Download the corresponding edition of Windows 7, you have a license from the following link. You can identify the edition on COA sticker on your machine, at the top/side or bottom compartment or battery (laptop) if it's a desktop computer.

  • Windows 7 Enterprise Serial Key suddenly not valid

    Hi all

    I had my W7 Enterprise key for more than 5 years with no problems, making a certain re installs due to various problems (HARD & Mo disk failures).

    A few days ago (after battling a virus naughty (and eventually won), my Windows 7 Enterprise tells me now that I am the victim of counterfeit software, my desktop background is black, a message at the bottom right says "Windows 7, Build7601, this copy of windows is not genuine" I am also square box pop ups reminding me this fact regularly.)

    I tried to re entry and re activate my legitimate copy of windows nothing helped.

    My key is legitimate, I've been through the online help of regular MS who have told me that they have validated the serial key, but can't help me because it's a company that issued my key for me.

    Can a MS teach, please advise how I can re entry and re activate my windows, to return to normal as soon as possible.

    Thank you very much.

    Rick

  • How can I get an ISO in Windows 8?

    I have a laptop HP I bought several months ago. I had to run Linux on it, so I installed Ubuntu. Now, I also need to do some things in Windows, if I want to install Windows 8 return. For some reason, I don't have a product key, its apparently hardcoded in the BIOS, so it should work automatically, but I don't know how to GET Windows. This site gave me an installer, but it is an .exe file, you can not run on Linux. I can not just run it as a live USB so its useless. I need an installation ISO, but I don't know where I am supposed to get it. What am I supposed to do?

    I know, 8.1 installation will not work if you have the product key for Windows 8. Where can we get the installation media for Windows 8?

    Unlike recent downloaders imperfect, the 8.1 Windows Media authoring tool provides a Windows 8.1 with update 1 .iso that works with the Windows 8.0 key both OEM and retail sales. See here where I demonstrates its use with a system OEM:

    http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/download-Microsoft-Windows-and-Office/Download-Microsoft-Windows/download-Windows-8-1-retail-and-OEM-ISO/

    Your first question is that the tool for creating Windows Media is a .exe that requires Windows 7 or later. Its recommended to use another PC to do this. Otherwise, your only choice is a double installation (or setting up a virtual computer) using the valuation of the company. This has a direct download link... You can install it and then use it to run the media creation tool:

    http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/download-Microsoft-Windows-and-Office/Download-Microsoft-Windows/download-Windows-8-1-Enterprise-ISO-90-day-trial/

    Your second question at issue is to determine the correct edition as you can not start your old Windows installation. The correct edition will automatically enter your product key and brings you to the license agreement, incorrect Edition invites you to enter a product key.

  • Could not get Basic Code for Windows Vista Home Edition key to work

    It is on the side of the computer, but my vista on the screen says its invalid... I have the code and it will not be taken, it says I have go to vista set up can't find it and I don't know if the computer is even came with the drive, he bought at Factory Direct...

    You can change the product key on the bottom of the system (Windows key + Pause/Break) properties page.

    Use a strong light and a magnifying glass to read the COA sticker.  It is easy to confuse some characters such as B and 8.

  • The ISO of Windows 8 Pro file

    Install Windows 8 Pro by installing directly without saving a copy of the ISO file. How can I get an ISO file to create a USB key for re - install?

    Today, I went through the process successfully with the help of this community. I summarize the following steps for you (I can remember a few steps, but you most).

    Download the .exe installation of:

    http://Web.ESD.Microsoft.com/W8DL/WSEC5B1D8A9DFDFD92DFB736C5B1D8956B5B1D8/Windows8-Setup.exe

    Click on Setup.exe. The wizard of Windows 8 will begin. Enter your key of Windows 8 and press Next.

    Click install now and let the full download.

    The installation files will be stored by default in the C:\ESD\Windows folder.

    When the "Install Windows 8" message is displayed, select 'Install by creating media' to create a bootable USB key or .iso (a disk image) file. Chose a folder to store the image, for example "Windows.iso.

    Wait for the wizard to create the media or bootable .iso file. The flash player must be having 3 GB or more of free space available.

    Burn the .iso file, if that's the path you have chosen, to a blank DVD.

  • can I use a disk the retail of home prem win7 with a serial key of win 7 home prem, found on my computer hp laptop?

    Can I use a disc of Windows 7 Home Premium retail with my Windows 7 Edition serial key Home Premium at the back of my HP laptop for a new installation of Windows?

    I know not what banhiem story and why he thinks that it's illegal, but it's fine as long you run version and the retail version, that you intend to install.

    Install as a trial and when everything is up and running, right click on computer and go to properties. He will say at the bottom of this page click "change product key" on it and follow the instructions to enter your product key for laptops.

    I've been running my dv8 in this way, and it's been a year. Microsoft would have locked me out now if it was illegal.

    The other choice is to simply do a system restore and it will be an option to make a minimum restore image, this will get rid of most of the bloatware. Note that this option is available on the newer machines.

    Things like the HP Support Assistant and Media Smart program will always be there, you can simply uninstall them if you wish.
