    Giving a fake key from Microsoft.

    I was giving a fake key from Microsoft employe. He had me do a full clean install of windows. When I finished I learned that the product key he gave me was being used on another computer. I contacted him again and he just sent me over to another employee. This employee told me they could not help me. What do I do. Now I have a version of windows on my computer that does not even work. And Microsoft keeps telling me they can not help me.

    Please help me!! I have a Windows 8 pro with media pack upgrade key. But it keeps telling me it will not work with this version of windows.

    My current version of windows is windows 8 pro build 9200.

    Hello Peter,

    You must enter your Windows 8 Pro key when installing Windows 8, and not the Windows 8 pro with media pack key.

    I called Microsoft and explained to them. That one of there employee's installed a non working version of Windows 8 pro on my PC. He activated the Windows 8 pro with media pack for me.
