If you are using downloaded/purchased media to install Windows 8 to the same version that you have, check the side of the computer or the bottom of it for the Product Code. Depending on the manufacture, you may be able to reinstall using the product code with an copy of Windows 8.

Windows 10, version 2004 and 20H2 devices that have the January 2021 nonsecurity preview release, or a later version, installed might experience Windows activation failures containing error code 0xC004C003.

When troubleshooting a Docking Station problem. Dell Technologies recommends manually downloading and installing updates from the Dell Drivers & Downloads page. This ensures that all required software is installed, and the latest versions are used.

SYNC updates are free to download via Wi-Fi (SYNC 3 and SYNC 4 & SYNC 4A only) or by using a USB drive. Visit the SYNC and Navigation Update page to see if you have SYNC or Navigation updates available for your vehicle.

I start with a brief introduction into Window licensing and have put together my recommended mechanisms for downloading Windows installation media and activating your product depending on your license type.if(typeof ez_ad_units != 'undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'dellwindowsreinstallationguide_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_1',131,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-dellwindowsreinstallationguide_com-medrectangle-3-0');

The Microsoft Windows 8.1 OEM licenses uses OEM 3.0 system locked preinstallation keys for activation. OEM 3.0 SLP activation inputs a unique 25 digit product key into the systems UEFI BIOS and hence has no need for a COA which have been removed due to piracy issues and due to the multiple problems users had when they peeled off or faded.

In the vast majority of cases the "Home Edition" is "Windows 8.1" or "Windows 8.1 Single Language". If your system has this sticker try downloading these two .isos and if one of the .isos takes you to the license agreement during installation you have the correct "Edition".

In the vast majority of cases the "Professional Edition" is "Windows 8.1 Pro". If your system has this sticker try downloading this .iso and if the .iso takes you to the license agreement during installation you have the correct "Edition".

It is therefore recommended you toss any Windows 8.0 installation DVDs in the bin. You may download a Windows 8.1 .iso using the Windows 8.1 media Creation Tool and this does not discriminate between Windows 8.0 and 8.1.

This license is designed for smaller system builders to sell e.g. for local computer shops to purchase that build custom systems and sell them on to the end user with preinstalled Windows and installation media. Because such shops only sell a low volume of systems (compared to Dell or HP) there is no custom BIOS to include the markers for OEM SLP activation. The computer shop are meant to be the ones to support the license and since they can only support their own configuration there is the same OEM inability to transfer the license; it is tied to the original mainboard. The installation and activation for this license type is therefore more similar to a retail license. Phone activation may be required if Retail media is used for installation however.

Thank you for the response. The "Windows 8.1 Core/Home" generic key you list doesn't work when I type it into the Windows8-Setup.exe program for downloading the iso. Any idea on how to get the iso so I can try reinstalling?

What are you trying to do?If installing with Windows 8.0 media you shouldn't have to enter a product key if its a Windows 8.0 key.If installing with Windows 8.1 media you will need to enter a generic Windows 8.1 product key to install if its a Windows 8.0 key.If installing with Windows 8.1 media you shouldn't have to enter a product key if its a Windows 8.1 key.If installing with Windows 8.0 media you will need to enter a generic Windows 8.0 product key to install if its a Windows 8.1 key.If you install with a generic product key after installation you need to use change key and activate with your Windows 8.0 key. If your license is OEM you need to find out the key with RW-Everything before going to change key.If updating from the Store you should not be prompted for a product key.If trying to download Windows 8.1 media then see here: -microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-iso/

If an OEM license follow the instructions here:: -clean-install-of-windows/microsoft-product-activation/obtaining-your-oem-bios-embedded-slp-product-key-using-rw-everything-oem-only/Then follow the instructions here: -clean-install-of-windows/microsoft-product-activation/product-activation-using-a-windows-8-1-product-key/If retail follow the second link only.

Glad its helped Sebastian. I don't know why Microsoft want you to install Windows old (XP/Vista/7) and then download Windows 8.0, then download all updates and then visit the Microsoft Store then download Windows 8.1 and then download all the updates for Windows 8.1. Not only is it a waste of time, system performance is worse. This page has became quite popular as more and more people want to clean install directly.

For the retail license (if bought in boxed form) it should be the key on the card: -8/windows-8-pro-retail-boxAlternatively if bought as a digital download the key supplied in the email. Both of these have been reported to work in the method on this page.

You are talking about the downloader or the installer?The downloader both my keys are blocked to download as I have used them too many times and get the we cannot connect right now error so I cannot do more testing and refuse to buy Windows 8 again (especially at full price).The installer you should use the generic product key and change key at the end. -microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-iso/

After installation of Windows 8.1 using a generic Windows 8.1 Professional product key. As long as you are online you should be able to activate using the change key: -clean-install-of-windows/microsoft-product-activation/product-activation-using-a-windows-8-1-product-key/

I should have said I have the win 8 disc and prod key, the WMC prod key, the generic Win 8.1 key to install and can use slui.exe 0x3 to insert my Windows 8 prod key for activation. My question was, when do I perform Windows updates, before or after activation and the answer appears to be after activation of Win 8.1?Thank youPeter

You will need to buy one if you don't have one.This instructions you in using your Windows 8 retail key for the download.If you want to evaluate use the Enterprise trial or the Windows 10 preview.

I have used the mediacreationtool to download windows 8.1 update iso 64bit and it worked with a oem dell key . -microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-retail-and-oem-iso/

There is no way of deleting the OEM key from the BIOS, it'd be too dangerous. However there is a means of bypassing the OEM product key by adding an ei.cfg and pid.txt file to the installation media. See here: -microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-retail-and-oem-iso/You may use your actual Professional key opposed to the generic Professional key.

Do not use a .iso from a torrent, follow the instructions here to get a genuine .iso: -microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-retail-and-oem-iso/Use the Windows 8.1 Single Language .iso and tell me if it asks for your product key.

Hi there. I have an HP TouchSmart 15 laptop. How can I get the Windows version information and product key because the drive where windows is installed is locked? I have the external hard drive and 2 USB drives, as well as a working PC, and I had downloaded that RWeverything program as well as Rufus, but I don't see a .iso file in all of the RW files to make a bootable USB. Would you help please? Thanks.

How do you mean locked, Windows password protected or BIOS password locked?The .isos are here but you need to select the correct edition: -microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-retail-and-oem-iso/

The good news is looking at the price of your system it won't be a Bing edition.You should download the Windows 8.1 .iso, make a bootable USB and then attempt to boot from it, if it asks for a product key it is the incorrect .iso if it doesn't then its the correct .iso. Try Windows 8.1, then Windows 8.1 Single Language and then Windows 8.1N. As this is a Home System I don't think this system would be shipped with the Professional Editions.

I get error 0xC004F069 when trying to use my Windows 8 Pro upgrade on an installation of Windows 8.1 Pro with update 1 installed which was installed using the new program that allows you to download an 8.1 ISO. This article is great except my key does not work without that error. Elsewhere on this site you state to trash all my 8.0 installations, that won't work for me as my key ONLY works on Windows 8.0. Is there anyway I can use my 8.0 key any other way, without installing Windows 8.0 and downloading 8.1 through the store?
