    windows 8.1 COA


    I'm new to 8. I've noticed that laptops do not come with a COA sticker. The product key in the system menu will not work. How can you get the product key?

    Welcome to the forum!

    The key is burned into the chip on systems with UEFI BIOS. You can get the key with several different tools. Last three or four options here: Product Key - Find for Windows 8

    Never mind, Nuccii posted while I was typing.

    Thanks everyone. Wow, that was a quick response. I'm hooked on this forum. I finally purchased a desktop with 8.1, so I'm sure I'll be on here. Thanks again.
