How to reinstall windows 8 with my valid serial key that I don't have?


I bought Acer laptop with windows-8 charge. But I don't have windows-8 serial key, because I don't have any mail as well as any sticker's stamp on the laptop.

The following are my system details...

  • Operating system: Windows 8 64 bit (version 6.2, 9200) (9200.win8_gdr.121119 - 1606)
  • Language: English (regional setting: English)

    Chassis serial number: NXM1JAA011236105246600
    Case type: portable

  • Main circuit
    Tip: Acer Aspire V5-571 V2.01
    Serial number: NBM1K1100423600C286600
    The bus clock: 100 MHz
    BIOS: Phoenix Technologies Ltd 03/08/2012 V2.01

I read somewhere that the COA (certificate of authenticity) sticker is not attached to the machine more. Instead, it will be incorporated in the BIOS setting. So maybe it's even for me.

Now I want to make sure before reinstalling my windows 8 OS how my new installation of windows 8 get authenticated with serial key valid?
When I reinstall.
Require a Windows-8 serial key? If Yes, then where I will get it?
It will be automatically the system BIOS (shipped)? If yes then how to confirm that it is integrated into my system?
If two options above does not work for me so I have to do?

Can I get my windows serial key product ID 8?

My requirement is to double my machine bootable, so my other question is can I do this?

Thank you

  • How to reinstall Windows 8 with the upgrade product key

    I bought a Windows 7 laptop and then bought the upgrade of Windows 8. on the online store of Windows. The hard drive of the laptop has been altered somehow and both the partition of Windows 8 and Windows 7 recovery partition no longer works.

    When I try to create a USB Windows 8 key install it does not accept the product key that I paid for. I can't reinstall Windows 7, so how can I reinstall Windows 8 on the laptop.


    Try saving it in a an ISO Image... You can then put it on a flash or DVD later...

    Make sure that you try to download Win 8 and not earn 8.1...

    You will always have problems well... even if you manage to get the picture, it will take an existing operating system on the machine.

    You may have to buy Win 7 media the manufacturer of machines, if they are still available...

    The price is usually quite reasonable, less with most manufacturers charge about US $20

  • G570 - How to reinstall Windows 7 after replacing a hard drive that crashed?

    Hi all

    I have a Lenovo G 570 and was very happy with it. Unfortunately, I had a hard drive crash (totally my bad, I dropped the laptop on the floor).

    In any case I had to change my drive hard because I got this message: "No bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key any." I have always this message with the new hard drive which makes sense since I have to reinstall Windows 7, but the problem is that I don't have a sticker with the product key

    Does this mean that the Windows product key is in the Bios? How can I get? Contact Lenovo to get a new product key and pay for it?

    A big thank you to the person who will be able to help me with this, can not wait to start to use my Lenovo again.

  • Games like solitaire, free cell, hearts, etc. accidentally has been removed from my computer. When I go into Control Panel, add or remove windows, windows components, I need the floppy disk that I don't have. Any ideas how I can get these games back?

    I have windows xp service pack 3 and internet explorer 7

    Hi dollarsfor6,


    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    In most cases if the games are deleted from the computer files will remain on the computer.

    I suggest that you are looking for game files in the system32 folder.

    Click on Start menu later click on run and type c:\\windows\system32 in the following search of the window for the file of games like free cell. If you get the files in the system32 folder then copy the file to c:\\program files\start menu\ later in the game folder.

    If fails it above step, try a system restore to the point when the game was available on the computer.

    See the link below to learn how to perform the system restore.

  • How do I reinstall Windows 7 with a upgrade disc

    Separated from this thread.

    Hello Bill,

    Is this true with a copy as well upgrade? I brought (bare with me I forgot the details) upgrade 64-bit Windows 7 Home premium from XP I think it is? If I was to reformat my computer would be I reinstall windows using the natures CD upgrade or do I need to reload XP and then update? I'm confused sorry if this doesn't make much sense!

    You can clean install them using the upgrade disc.  Always on the technical side, you need to own a qualifying version of Windows (XP), but that's just a rule of licensing - the older one has need not be actually installed on the drive.

    Since your eMachine has been pre-installed with Windows 7, you must have a recovery partition to reinstall your operating system.  If this isn't the case, they can also provide you with recovery media.  Please see the article here for more information.

  • How to reinstall windows 8 in new HARD drive using the old product key?

    Mr President.

    One of my clients purchased a new HP Envy 6 - 1150ex running integrated windows 8 64-bit a month ago. Unfortunately the HARD drive broke down by the improper use and must be replaced. I replaced the HARD drive, but I can't find the product key original of the laptop unless you have small windows on the laptop sticker. given that I don't have the recovery for the same model disk how can I install the genuine windows 8 manually by using the product key? where can I find the product key?  Please help me.

    Kind regards



    Should be no problem at all if you use the version of Windows 8 EVEN because the product key is now embedded in the BIOS of the machine. The process is to get the right installation of Windows 8 media (DVD, USB, downloaded file) and then install on your client computer. No label/sticker more for all new machines with Windows pre-installed 8.

    Please see the following link for more information.

    How to reinstall Windows 8

    You have two options:

    If you want to reinstall Windows 8, which means remove applications and personal files and settings, you can use the reset and refresh. This is equivalent to a clean install.

    To do this, follow these steps:

    · Press the Windows key + i on your keyboard to show the charms (if you use a touch screen: touch the right edge of your screen and drag your finger to the left)

    · Click settings

    · Click change PC settings

    · Click general in the left column

    · In virtue remove all and reinstall Windows, click Start

    Then follow instructions that will be provided on the screen to reinstall Windows on your PC.

    Option 2:

    If you create an installation DVD or a USB bootable, you can use them to reinstall Windows. First, you will need to reinstall license qualification, then begin the upgrade to Windows 8. License of qualification means that you will need to reinstall Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

    Option 3:

    A workaround for this situation is to create a system image of Windows 8, just after you have upgraded. So if your drive plant, you can simply restore the image on a new hard drive or restore the image on the same drive, if you want to reinstall Windos 8.

    See the following for instructions on how to create an image of the installation process of Windows 8:

    (references Windows 7, but the same principles apply to Windows 8).

    Hey Buddy,

    You have created the Toshiba Recovery disk? Perfect!
    After Exchange of HARD drive, you need this you to install Windows 7 disc. The Toshiba Recovery disk contains an image of the factory settings, which means that you will have the factory settings on the new HARD drive after the use of the disc. You must boot from it and follow the instructions on the screen.

    It would be interesting to know what data you mean exactly.
    Before you reinstall Windows, you must back up all data on a disk for example external HARD.

    I bought a laptop with a windows xp pro, I have the serial number, but I don't have the installation disc. How can I know which version I need? SP3 has not worked... at the moment I am testing SP1

    The serial number of the computer has nothing to do with the product key for Windows.

    What happened when you tried to install Xp with sp3? If you do not have the original for the computer that you use to install Windows?

    You can try to contact the manufacturer of the computer who may be able to provide the recovery disc. The disks are usually under $ 20.
