    The "OEM Key" that you get from OPTION FIVE will be for the original Windows 8 product key in your UEFI firmware chip from the factory.

    If you like, you can download a Windows 8.1 ISO file from OPTION ONE in the tutorial below, and be able to activate the installed Windows 8.1 from it with your Windows 8 key.

    FindWindowsKey.zipHey Shawn, I've been making different batch files to upload to people who need help. they are folders that contain the actual batch file, instructions, and a shortcut that runs as admin. I made one awhile ago for the windows key(attached). If you want you can place it at option six(after you tidy it up a bit I suppose).

    Thank you Cliff.

    I've just updated the .vbs file in OPTION FIVE to automatically prompt with UAC to run it elevated that should do the trick.

    One more option to find key: Speccy from Piriform shows it as serial number under operating system.
