    Installing a Product Key and Activating Windows 8 Developer Preview

    Early adopters putting the first public pre-beta of Windows 8 through its paces know by now that not only is a product key not provided by Microsoft along with the ISO images of the Developer Preview Build, but that itís also not needed during the installation process.

    Thereís a simple enough reason for this, Windows Developer Preview comes with the following product key out of the box: 6RH4V-HNTWC-JQKG8-RFR3R-36498.

    This being said, feedback indicates that testing Windows 8 is not always a perfectly smooth experience, but Build 8102 Milestone 3 (M3) is a pre-Beta release after all.

    Speaking of key, has anyone tried to locate the key in regedit and change it?

Activating Win 8 64-bit with 32-bit product key
Hello, I have a copy of Windows 8 Pro 32-bit. I know with Windows 7 Pro for example, if you had a product key for Windows 7 Pro 32-bit, you could use it with a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, and vice-versa. So I was wondering if that still held true for Windows 8. Could I install Windows 8 Pro 64-bit,...
