    Install key error


    I'm having problem during the installation of Windows 8 Pro CD. How can I eliminate the key from BIOS? I still run the OEM version and I want it to be removed. Thanks in advance

    Try disabling Secure Boot and enable CSM in your BIOS, that should allow you to clean install 8.1 pro

    If you have Windows 8 core Pre-install.

    To upgrade Windows 8 core, you need to use the Pro Pack.

    To upgrade to Pro Pack
    No install files needed.
    Only the Upgrade key is need.
