    I am booting from a recovery drive because reset did not work, but the recovery drive is not working ether.
    Is that the recovery drive you made from within windows like this:

    Use this key to install:

    Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    CoreSingleLanguage=Y9NXP-XT8MV-PT9TG-97CT3-9D6TC

    Professional=XHQ8N-C3MCJ-RQXB6-WCHYG-C9WKB

    Core=334NH-RXG76-64THK-C7CKG-D3VPT

    If you bought the $40 upgrade offer , it is almost certainly Pro.



    You can use your upgrade key to activate afterwards.

    (Ignore the tutorial title that has been added.) If you have windows 8.0 use the key that corresponds to your edition.

    Not clear to me what you are doing or why you want to connect to the internet.

    I think the tut added to my previous post has misled you. Ignore that.

    Is that a flash you are booting?

    Create a little text file in the "sources" folder of the installation/recovery drive media and save it as ei.cfg

    Click image for larger version

    It should contain this:

    [EditionID]
    Professional
    [Channel]
    Retail
    [VL]
    0

    I looks like this:
