    Unistalled windows 8 and I want to install it again!


    Hello,

    I removed windows 8 from my laptop and Installed Linux mint but I had a problem with the languages, etc..

    Anyway. I still have my windows 8 product key. Is it possible to use it again on the same laptop that was running windows 8 before?

    If so, how can I download windows 8?

    Thank you!

    Was the NoteBook Pre-installed with Windows 8?

    Hi.

    No it was with Windows 7, then I upgraded it by buying a license for $40 during the discount period.

    Now I'm using my new laptop which came with Windows 8.

    I still want to use my old laptop...!
