I got an HP ElitePad 900 that was new-ish (probably a display unit, since there was no R for Refurbished in the serial), which started giving partial activation errors from the outset. It said the Windows was activated in System, but personalization was locked, it asked to activate upon startup, etc. Eventually when I installed updates, it stopped saying it was activated in System as well and a Build 9200 watermark popped up on the desktop. I tried to restore to factory state but the recovery partition was erased. The charger for the tablet has a Windows 8 Pro sticker on it, but I looked at the System information and apparently the Windows installed is not Windows 8 Pro (says only Windows 8 in System). I just downloaded some software to get my original key from BIOS but trying that key for upgrade to Windows 8 Pro version hasn't worked. So right now, my assessment is that what I need to do is: 1. Find Windows 8 Pro 32-bit OEM version iso 2. Create a bootable USB using this iso 3. Reset and install using this USB However, I'm still stuck at step 1. The only Windows 8 OEM I found was 64 bit, and that won't work with the Atom Elitepad 900. It's proving almost impossible to find an OEM version Windows 8 Pro 32-bit. Am I missing something here? The lack of OEM iso downloads suggests to me that there must be a workaround, since I couldn't be the only one facing this issue. But I haven't been able to find another fix online. Could someone guide me here? Is there some other way?
