    Originally i just had Windows 8 Professional, activated with a key found on the internet via Phone Activation.
    When Microsoft were 'giving away' Windows 8 MCE keys, i upgraded.

    I need to reinstall Windows 8. How do i restore full activation or simply reactivate with minimum fuss?

    Kind Regards

    If I was you I would use the backup/restore files method.

    There are two threads about it in the Sticky area.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Use Advanced Tokens Manager latest version to backup your current activation. :biggrin:
    Create a Windows 8 ProWMC ISO and install.
    Just run the advanced tokens manager and hit restore activation.
