    I want to install Windows 8 Pro on a friend's computer but would rather enter the key at the end while activating not during setup.

    anyone know how to do that?

    You could use one of the MS Windows Client Key's for Windows 8. That will not get Windows activated but will be fully installed. After use a legit Key or KMS for activation.

    Also you could use the EI.CFG function, read here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...-8-Core-and-Pro-RTM-from-MASD-without-any-key
