    Windows 8 enterprise x64


    I request 3 keys, from different email address and even from different IP and for 3 different users last Saturday, I receive one yesterday morning and I have not yet receive the 2 others one. The one i receive was the second one I ask for, so I have no idea how MS is processing this.

    You only get one key per e-mail address.

    The watermark has been mentioned, not sure if it was this thread. As you observed it goes away. Likely just to show you the update/upgrade worked OK.

Or was I seeing things wherever I read that? Maybe that was only free for those purchasing the 8 upgrade from other OS's? I got my OS from my Technet Plus account. By the way, it works just fine.
