    To get the Product Key run this vbs script:

    ShowKey.vbs

    i think you may have misunderstood the issue.

    current position is, i am getting the automactic repair loop. i can use the Assist key to get to the menu which allows me to select start with bootable media, bios, recovery etc but when i select bootable media I just get "operating system" not found.

    there isnt any way for me to get that VBS script on to the laptop which has the issue

    No safe mode ?
    No command prompt?
    You're in a pickle then.

    Get recovery DVDs from manufacturer.

    You will probably need something efi bootable with rweverything on it.

    Have you access to another machine running 8.1 ?

    In the middle of d/l ing something, so can't boot into 8.1 to make one for you just yet.

    If you are stuck, will do it a bit later.

    That is good, You can use my winpe maker thing on your laptop. ( RW is in there ).

    It will create an efi bootable iso. Try booting that on the sick machine, or use Rufus to put the iso on usb.
    Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

    Rufus 1.4.6 download 578kb


    Will post a link when I have uploaded new version in a few mins.
