  • Hi Doneldar.

    If your Windows 8 copy was pre-installed within the PC, the product key code is stored into the system BIOS and the Windows setup program will automatically read it during the installation phase.
    You could try getting your product key code by using a tool like ProduKey.

    Bye.
