    How create full backup license for Win8 Prox64 DPK TPG?

    I bought a ThinkPad Edge E430 with Windows 8 Pro DPK TPG. There's no product key. No product key also below or under the battery, but sticker has sticker with Win8Pro. I did recovery usb disk drive from (create recovery drive ) option in control panel with Copy contents from the recovery partition to the recovery drive checked box. Is that enough, if you damage the disc and need to install new windows? What should i do to not lose my license if the disk is damaged or the motherboard in the future?

    Thanks in advance!

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD.

    Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    Check out chapter 3 in this manual:

    You can order OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.

    You can also use the Windows system image.
