    Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center

    I lost my email and I'm trying to download Windows 8 again


    Odd question can anyone link me to the web site that is for the account summary page? It's shown in the email like here.

    I lost my email and I'm trying to download Windows 8 again. When I goto the MS pages to download the setup to install from USB I get a message that I can't use my upgrade key to download. So trying to get back to this site to see if it's a different installer.

    I can't just goto the www.mswos.com site as I don't have my order # again.

    Either that or if someone can goto the site and link the download to here that would be good too. But I'd like to try to get access to my account on there so I can save the order # again.

    Edit: Figured it out...
    Turns out after using the BelArc Advisor I was looking at the Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center key. Guess that's the key I used to add the Media Center upgrade. It actually wants the MS Internet Explorer key listed on BelArc.

    So you can close this thread as solved already.

    Hello TwiggLe, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    When you click on the link in the email to download Windows 8, it will take you to the link below.
    That is basically the same as OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to help with it.
    If that doesn't help, then you might see if you may be able to download an ISO using an option in the tutorial below. You can then create a USB or DVD from the ISO.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Yeah I ended up figuring it out. I don't have my email from the https://www.mswos.com/ site when I purchased the copy of windows. So I didn't have my order # to get back into the page to get my info and such. (They really should just have an account login that is tied to your email and doesn't require an order #.)

    I tried to download the Windows 8 setup exe's but didn't have my CDkey. Used the Barla Software and thought the Win8 Pro Media Center key was the key I was supposed to use. Turns out it was the MicroSoft Internet Explorer key it listed was my key to use.

    Thanks again and consider this issue resolved if you want to close my thread.
