    Activated Window 8 SL become unactivated windows 8 pro


    I tried to upgrade windows 8 single language features with a recommended serial number found on a website but it turns into unactivated windows 8 professional with Media center. Now I want to revert it to genuine windows 8 single language. Please help.

    You are welcome.

    The tutorial is now updated.

    If you have an OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8/8.1 Single Language product key, then you must download Windows 8.1 Single Language version (see this link for help).
