    couldn't verify th produck key when i install wind 8?


    Hello guys,
    I am new on eight forums..
    hope be enjoyable with you and find a solution of my issue.


    At the beginning, when I have started to setup windows 8 ,everything goes okay until the product key, I get an error message saying 'We couldn't verify the product key. Check the installation media'


    And I had tried to install windows 8 on another PC with having same product key then I have noticed the product key has worked on that Pc! and not working on my PC.
    So I have tried several times to enter lots of keys.

    my Question is why my PC is not verify any product keys??
    and how can solve my issue??

    very thanks.

    First, and most importantly, please remove your product key from the original post! So, if you have already installed (and activated) that product key on another computer, you can't use it again on a second computer so I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish here. Good luck..

    Hmm... I wasn't aware that you could use the same key "over and over" again unless you had some sort of volume licensing arrangement and I don't know specifically how that would work.

    I suggest you need to edit the product key out of this post as well, because it's visible in the quoted text.

    Unless it's a volume license edition you cannot legally use it on more than one PC at the same time. You cannot install windows 8 without entering a Product code. You would have to modify the install media to do that. Where did you obtain your copy of Windows 8 from and what version edition is it.
