Notebook: HP Pavilion D6, 03/10/2013, BIOS-Version F.23 with Produkt configuration ID and System Board CT Nummer and Factory installed OS Win8 To people who could help an old fogy at 73 years. Good day and a brief history Age-related, I have from my half-brother in Virginia ( he is 12 years older) received his almost new laptop as a gift. For export reasons and security He has to expand the installed hard disk and can be destroyed. After receipt of the machine in Germany I have this shipped to an authorized dealer of HP (IPC ) to the U.S. keyboard replaced with a German keyboard. On the machine there was a sticker of WIN 8 My brother I confirmed this with the information that he has received no media for this purpose . But MS Germany would help me. For my request for information to MS Munich I had to pay 72.00 euros to the support first . I got this information that there is no disk with an OEM version . The product key is permanently installed in UEFI BIOS. However, in MS-store I could buy a WIN 8 for € 129.00 Preferential price, a DVD. A disk as a recovery version I would get only from HP. After I paid 62 euros to HP I was told that I could get a Recovery disk only within the warranty period. The warranty period is over 03/10/2013 March 2014, as recorded in the BIOS (F10) The customer service from HP has helped me over the instruction on the phone to deduct a small plug-safe on Machine Factory setting to reset the. Now my question: Is there any expert to whom I could send my machine? Perhaps to a moderator? Or how can I read the product key in the bios? For my situation I've invested a lot of money. That is why it has lasted so well until now. The notebook starts immediately. About F10 I can turn into the bios. A blank hard drive I could be installed. I bought this. Thank you in advance for your efforts. DieLoo NS: Since 1972 I have paid faithfully and honestly all my licenses and product-Key's. Whether Microsoft, HP and others. Today I feel deceived and am disappointed by this behavior.
