    Once the installation was completed, I could change the key to the OEM key from PC Settings and activate without any issue.

    Hey

    Would you be able to share the Dell Latitude 10 Windows 8 x86 OEM key please.

    I've had to restore the tablet, and in doing so I had to format the tablet. Now I have W8 running but not activated yet.

    Thank you

    Sharing a Product key would be Piracy.

    I did think of that angle, but at this point I have no idea what to do.

    I do really have a D L 10. At this stage the touch screen is not working, network adapters have not been recognised etc etc... I can only think of an expensive repair direct with Dell, even though it was their stupid recovery that messed up everything in the first place.

    Thanks for sharing the good news. Its been something I was wondering how to do for some time and is quite important information for a Dell Windows Reinstallation Guide.

    Theres a few additional things I was wondering about OEM Windows 8.1 installs with 8.0 SLP keys. If you have time to test could you let me know if it works?

    You have installed Windows 8.1 and used the generic product key and in advance you got your 25 digit OEM product key.

    First I assume this product key works with neither the 8.0 or 8.1 retail downloader from Microsoft?
    UK Customers: Upgrading Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Help
    US Customers: Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Help

    Secondly if instead of changing your product key (to the one you got with the keyfinder) do you think Windows 8.1 would automatically find the product key if the generic key was removed and it was restarted without any product keys?
    This can be done by typing slmgr.vbr /upk in an elevated command prompt.

    This is important as it emulates a replacement drive where the customer cannot use keyfinders to find their product key.

    Thanks
