Preferred Solution: regarding product key recovery of oem window 8.1

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, Please do not messing up with Microsoft. Hopefully the key is still in the BIOS of your machine, please use the following tool to get it: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.htmlWhen run this tool, it produces a report, scroll down to Software Management section. Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 product key is in there.You can also use the following tool to find out: https://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/Regards,

I have had to put a new hard drive in my laptop after the original one failed.
I then reinstalled Vista using the product recovery CD that came with the laptop (not the recovery cds i made as these did not work!)

Vista is now asking me to supply a product key as the one given is incorrect.
I tried the key from the bottom of the laptop, but this does not work.

What to i do?

The Windows product key on the bottom side of your notebook is an OEM license key. That means this can?t be used with other Windows versions.

Last week, I purchased a new Lenovo X260 (Type 20F6-006AUS). Packaging said it came with Windows 10, but when I fired it up it booted into Windows 7. After searching for the Windows 10 media or files, finally succumbed and contacted Lenovo support. The agent said the Windows 10 files are available by request and come on separate media, so I made the request.  This afternoon, a thumb drive with the Windows 10 Product Recovery arrived.  (Rhetorical: Can it really be Product Recovery if the laptop was represented as having Windows 10 installed, but was not actually installed?) I followed the instructions. Now when it boots to the thumb drive, I click past the Acceptance of Terms and conditions, acknowledge it'll wipe out all my personal data and watch the recovery start. About 1 minute in, I get a pop-up with the window banner "Product Recovery" and the message "Recovery failed." The recovery process must have gotten far enough that it wiped out the boot sector on the SSD, because I can neither boot to the original factory SSD or to the Product Recovery USB they shipped. I've searched around and found no solutions for this specific problem. Some have speculated it may be because they didn't have factory installed HDD, but I've swapped nothing out from how it came shrink-wrapped. Any suggestions?

It sounds to me like your rescue and recovery partition may be corrupted. My recommendations is to get the rescue and recovery CD's from Lenovo. I had to purchase some for an old T40 and it cost me like $45, but after you have them you can have piece of mind that you can replace the hard drive and still restore back to Factory settings. After you get the recovery CD's I would recommend reinstalling rescue and recovery.

I would greatly appreciate advice on the following.

My Sat Pro M70-220 (PSM75E-00D008G3), laptop has 4 partitions created by Acronis Disk Director Suit v9:

C: OS-Win XP Pro SP3
D: Programs
E: Data& Downloads
F: Backups

After booting the laptop into Win XP, I inserted the Toshiba Product Recovery CD into the DVD-RAM drive
and navigated to BMP folder, R:\G_INST\BMP, where I found the file "menu.bmp" which gives 2 Recovery
options:

*1. Recover entire Hard disk*
Warning . All stored data o your computer will be lost.
Factory pre-installed software will be installed.

*2. Expert Recovery Mode Warning:*
This is for PC experts only.
Factory pre-installed Software can be installed onto an existing partition.

My questions are with respect to using the "Expert Recovery Mode" :
- will I be able to use the "Expert Recovery Mode" of the Recovery CD to reinstall the Win XP Pro (factory pre-installed software) onto my C: partition, whilst not affecting the D, E & F partitions ?
- will I be able to format the C: partition, using the "Expert Recovery Mode", without formatting the other partitions ?
- what is the exact "Expert Recovery Mode" procedure ?
- where can I find further info on the "Expert Recovery Mode" procedure ?

Thank you

>will I be able to use the "Expert Recovery Mode" of the Recovery CD to reinstall the Win XP Pro (factory pre-installed software) onto my C: partition, whilst not affecting the D, E & F partitions

Yes, this should be possible. Using the Expert Recovery Mode you should get the Ghost window in which you could select the partition where the OS should be installed. In such case only this partition would be formatted.

> will I be able to format the C: partition, using the "Expert Recovery Mode", without formatting the other partitions?

Yes, theoretically this should be possible.

> what is the exact "Expert Recovery Mode" procedure ?
As I mentioned above, this mode allows you to restore the OS on a certain partition and only this partition will be formatted.

> where can I find further info on the "Expert Recovery Mode" procedure ?
How about searching here in the forum?

HELP! So we recently purchased an X240 for a user and it's been nothing but issues. Shortly have installing the applications he needed, the machine has been having this weird problem of unresponsiveness for no reason. You'd start up Excel and then shortly after that the machine just "pauses" for many seconds before the mouse moves again. Anyway, after trying to figure out the cause I gave up and decided to restore the machine to its factory settings. Problem is, pressing F11 and booting into recovery the process stops about 1/8th of the way and says "Recovery failed." Does anyone know what this means exactly under all of this GUI interface? There's no details as to what or where it failed. I've even created a USB recovery disk to restore from, but it bombs out at the same place... I've asked Lenovo to send me recovery disks, but that's going to take time to receive and guess what... it's coming as a DVD when this machine has no DVD drive! HELP!

A:Window 8.1 Pro Product Key

WARYAA Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about needing your product key and wanted to help. With Win8x, the product key is embedded into the UEFI firmware on the motherboard.  You can retrieve it by following these directions:  Product Key - Find for Windows 8 However ... you have a bigger problem.  Your Win8.1 is not activating because you most likely reinstalled Win8 from an image your downloaded from the Internet or from an MS DVD -- and those images are Retail versions. Your PC came preinstalled with an HP OEM version of Win8 -- and the product key from that can only be used to activate the HP OEM version, not the Retail versions.  So basically, the version you installed will not activate unless you go out and buy a license for it. What will work is restoring your machine to its original factory condition using HP Recovery Media.  This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number.

Hey Guys,

In 'System Information', there's a link that says 'Get more features with a new edition of windows". Clicking that brings up an 'Enter Product Key' page, and it is only at this point that I realize my product key isn't stuck to the bottom of this PC.

So, researching this on Google, I found a product key that Microsoft Released for the Trial:
NTTX3-RV7VB-T7X7F-WQYYY-9Y92F

So, my question is: Will my Windows 8 Product Key work with 8.1 Preview?
If so, I think I would rather dig that up than use a generic key.

If it doesn't, and I need to use this generic key, what happens at the end of the Preview when everyone has the same Product Key.

Will Windows 8 become an Operating System where you'll need to pay for the updated OS after the preview? Ie, paying for and getting a new Product Key?

And last, does anyone know what features entering a product key will actually unlock?

Thanks, Kurt

Welcome to EF BarkerBlast !

1- You can upgrade from Windows 8 without entering a product key, but for a clean install you'll always need a product key. You can enter the generic key or a key received from MSDN in case you have a subscription. Windows 8 keys do not work for a clean install.

Hello,

I've been having a few issues with a new home-built computer (start up occurred on 11/25/2010), specifically BSOD's. Initially, the computer would crash due coming out of hibernation. This has been solved by turning off this feature, for now. In addition, a new problem cropped up yesterday. But first, a bit about the computer:

-Video Card: NVidia GTX 460 768 MB

A:lost product key for window xp home

Sorry buenf but we can't help you with that. An OEM (preinstalled) version of XP is only meant to be used on the computer it came with, it's the downside of not having to pay the full price of a retail licence. Getting the OEM key to work on another system would be illegal. Your only solution is to buy a retail licence and use the retail product key that comes with it (if you can't activate the OEM version with a retail product key you can phone ms or reinstall from scratch with the retail CD).

I'll close this thread, please refer to the forum rules.

A:Reinstall Window XP- Product Activation

Dell OEM disks do not require activation.  If the SLP key is missing this means you did not use DELL OEM media OR you are trying to use XP on a system that did not come with XP.   Microsoft DOES NOT provide support for SLP activation or OEM Versions of windows.
 
"Microsoft feeds synchronization" errors are XP Internet explorer errors and has nothing to do with Activation."
XP is end of life End of support AND microsoft has removed the downloads for Service pack 1 and 2 and 3.
 
Reinstalls of XP require service packs as well as IE8 minimum.
Its probably too late to get most of the links below.

XP is no longer supported. I highly recommend you download all 4 gigs of the files below to a flash drive because later on they will no longer be available.

All of the Dell CD's I have have Dotnet 1.1 sp1 on them.  You have to install your dots in order.  CHIPSET Should be FIRST before anything else.

There will be tons of stuff to install if you don't have even with SP3

IE8 being one. DOTNET 1.1 is on the XP CD from dell.

I strongly recommend you download the files onto a flash drive because there is no telling how long these will stay.

It wont let you backtrack.

But an error showed up saying Your device needs to repaired and not connected kr cant be acessed (Code: 0xc000000f).?Then i tried Repairing windows from bootable windows 10 USB but again it failed too (Error was startup repair cant repiar your system).?After trying this when i pulled my usb out,  i was not able to start my windows even because on startup before windows 10 lofo every time an error showed up saying (No bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key)?So i thought i could help my self by formatting c: drive and installing new windows for usb. But again i failed , error saying (your partition is of GTP type) after formatting c:?So To get rid of (no bootable device) error on stratup i thought i can get rid of it by formatting MBR partition and another very first partition labelling System.

Is there any way to recover your product key? I have Win7 retail for 3 computers. I have just installed on the last computer (the first two were installed a year or so ago) and I don't have the product key. I think I tossed it out as it was on a card IN THE BOX rather than a sticker on the end like every other frigin MS product I have seen. I must have saw the card and just tossed it out thinking it was just another ad trying to sell me something else. Seeing the sticker (but not looking close) just assumed it had the product key.

Hello, I have a Dell XPS 8700 desktop I'm working on. after Hard Drive failed, I installed a new one. The computer boots to a black screen... SATA 0 installed SATA 1 installed 2-5 blank.
I have attempted to installed windows 7 via USB, and Windows 10. All goes well until the product key is required. I have also attempted the Dell OS Recovery and Dell Key Creator. All failed due to no back up or product key. When I enter the Service tag Dell OS Recovery says "No Recovery found for this device"
I do not have any backups. I have contacted Dell and they are no help. I can enter the BIOS, and when I attempted to install windows 10 I was able to get to the system recovery menu. Attempted every option in that list and nothing found. Now I can enter command prompt from this menu. I was told by Dell there is no command or solution to recover the Product key off the motherboard, they said I have to send the motherboard in to have it repaired. Is there anything I can do. I have been racking my brain for days trying to find a solution. Any help or advice is appreciated.

Hello,

Is there a freeware/shareware app out there that can let me know what my product keys are for the programs I have installed on my computer? (I.E. M/S Office, Outlook 2007 and the like)

Any direction would be great.
Many thanks,

Dave

I have an IBM A21p 2629HTU Thinkpad. I ran an IBM diagnostic test called a Drive Fitness Testing which indicated "one or more bad sectors found". I was directed to utilize the Erase Disk Utility to repair the drive. This would entail the use of a Product Recovery CD. I called the IBM HelpCenter and they said that they no longer provide this item for windows 2000NT. Any hints as to where I can legally obtain this item. Apparently it contains the OS and all appropriate drivers.
 

A:Product Recovery CD

Hi, Generally, and I am speaking of the regular full size hard drives, one bad spot is not going to kill anything, at least right away. Windows when it comes across a bad sector, will pull any data from it, and save the data as best it can.....it may be something needed, but if you have not seen any software errors or other file indications, then it is probably nothing needed.
The bad spot is then marked so, and not used by Windows again.

A full format sometimes can fix the spot, for some filesystem error, but if it is actual physical damage, then it will be marked so during a format (or a repair or recovery utility you were advised about) and not used, but you may still run OK that way. Depending on where the bad spot is, you might stay good for quite some time.

I have a hard drive with 8 bad spots, running win98, and the drive has been that way for 5 years.
The bad sectors/spots can increase, and that is a sure sign of trouble, so do not just let it go on, as it may crash totally at any time. I've read that defrag is not good to do in this situation.
Whether that is true or not, I can't say.

You can have some amazing luck on Ebay, search the Laptop or Notebook posts for that same model of ThinkPad, but, it would have to be exactly the same to work, you might find used ones for sale that come with the Recovery disks you need, for not much cost.

I have reloaded IBM ThinkPads with a regular install of win98SE and then been able to download and add the driver... Read more

I started to repair Vista but decided it wasn't necessary and did not follow through with using the repair disk.  Every time I boot up, a window appears telling me to insert the HP Product Support Disk in the CD Drive. How do I stop this from appearing? Thanks to anyone who replies. Doug

I have a 'Toshiba Satellite M100' running 'Windows XP SP2'
I wish to pretty much format my hard drive and basically make it like it just came from the box. Will the product recovery disc do this for me including installing windows XP? Also is there a way to back up some programs i don't wish to download again?

Thanks, Mat

Thanks, MatClick to expand...

the restore disk will make it just like when you bought it with OS and any programs that came with the pc
in general you cannot backup a program, programs need to be installed to function properly, the only way is to have 2 hdds with one cloned from the other and that is not what you are doing
