    unless you buy the product itself, there is no other way to get a genuine key. Unless you want to use some of the products they offer here, like loaders and use one of those keys and have a genuine copy of windows. If anything ask your friend for the key if he still has it.

    That link is for the Release candidate. It is beyond pointless installing the Release candidate as the RTM version is out. (RC keys won't run on on the RTM version)

    If for some bizarre reason you still want to run the release candidate (which will expire next year) everyone was assigned keys from a small pool of keys, so just use one of these:

    Thanks for the reply...

    he doesnt have the key... he was told, that once u log into the website given, it will be activated and a key will be given.

    can u pls explain where i can find these loaders which u r talking about and how i can make this copy genuine (so that i can use this OS permanently)..

    will be waiting for your reply.

    Dude, that blue sticker means that you are activated and genuine. It only says ask for genuine microsoft software as a marketing scheme.

    Grab an untouched retail version up in the stickys. Then put the loader in. All good to go.
