    I upgraded my friends Acer Iconia W500 yesterday and after the upgrade order was processed the key was displayed in the upgrade assistant.

    I upgraded my desktop and got the key the next day. I upgraded my laptop and used a different email address and never got a key. I have tried 5 times since December 2nd. Not one email from Microsoft. I even checked my spam folder every day. I'm going to try again tonight.

    Hi all - complete novice here so please bear with! - I received an email from Microsoft to say I must activate my free product key by Jan 31 - it then gives me the product key - and the steps to follow to add same. However, try as I might - I cannot get those steps to work. Any advice please would be much appreciated.

    If you have already activated with that key don't worry about it. I got the same e-mail and its for a key I got a while back. It's just a reminder to use it e-mail. If you just requested it and just received it, that's a different story. if that's the case post back and we'll help you sort it out.

    You can't, you'd have to reinstall to go back to 8 Pro. there is a trick to get around it, I think its in a similar thread on the sister site Windows 7 forums. I'll have a look and see if I can find it and get back to you.
