    Hi all.

    Wow its been a while since i was last on here.

    Any way, my girlfriend has given me her laptop as she hardly uses it. She has an iPad.

    Is there a way i can find out what the product code is for the Windows 8.1, so i can possibly obtain a windows 8.1 disc, then do a fresh/clean installation?
    There is no sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

    The OS is genuine.

    Thanks for any help thrown my way.

    OSG.

    You can simply run Daz's Windows Loader and it will show the os is not supported but it will also show the used productkey.

    To reinstall you also could go to the settings app and do a reset/refresh, so you don't need an installdisc.

    The laptop should also have an oem:Dm bioskey (you can check it with the OEM Query tool from the Multi_OEM project by The_Guardian)and when you use the Multi_OEM project files on a win 8.1 installmedium it should also auto-activate by using the oem:Dm key.

    Oh its as easy as that?
    So this will simply clear all programs, settings etc and give me like a fresh start as if i just bought the laptop?

    And am i being a bit thick by thinking that the Product ID that is being displayed in the This pc>properties is the key i would need to use if i did install form a disc?

    ** I used DAZ as you said, and i found the 25 character key so im guessing that it lol **

    I forgot to mention the laptop has no cd/dvd drive lol.

    And thank you for the reply Bat.1. Ill check the program out also.

    Look up jelly bean key finder that would suffice.
