    Amazing! Thank you so much genet! I couldn't get any ISO's to recognize that the BIOS had my key on my Lenovo. This worked flawlessly.

    Windows 8.1


    I'm having major problems with an Windows 8 x64 Std Acer V5 that's crashed.... Feeling smug, I made a windows recovery usb from another pc and dug out my recovery DVD disks - great or so I thought. I now find that as my recovery image disks were created in Windows 8 x64 std I cannot restore my laptop and to make things worse as the usb recovery is from a Windows 8.1 x64 Std computer Acer now want £50 ($75~) to send me a copy of Windows 8 std. Does anyone have a recovery USB image available - I have a copy of my bios embedded key so I don't need any keys. Basicaly I now have an unusable laptop with a set of useless recovery disks - I feel like chucking the damned laptop in the bin as I begrudge paying $75 to get back an OS I have already paid to use especially with Windows 10 arriving this year. I've looked everywhere for a Windows 8 x64 OEM iso but can find nothing on the net. Has anyone else had this kind of problem and if so, how did you get a resolution?

    Note: This Windows 8.1 installation media accepts Windows 8/8.1 product keys, both OEM and retail (for example, "Windows 8 Pro $15/$40 Upgrade Offer" product key).

    1. Create installation media for Windows 8.1

    Code:
    powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query ‘select * from SoftwareLicensingService’).OA3xOriginalProductKey"

    I can't use this guide because Windows Installation Media Creation Tool can't download anything.

    I'm stuck at 0%, and it has been at 0% for an hour now.

    Yes, i have specifically selected mediacreationtool.exe in my firewall settings to "allow" anything inbound and outbound.

    Anyone know why this happens?
