    Hi all,
    actually i've an old PC that run a W8 Pro WMC activated with the "bug of the WMC free keys" last year.

    My question is: i bought a new PC (without OS) on which i would like to install (and activate) W8.1....the "old 'legit' license" of the old PC is usefull?

    I can use it to activate the new W8.1? I don't know, with the phone activation, with online activation?

    Thank you :eek:

    no sir, activation tied to machine, try your luck with phone activation

    Yes, i know about changing (all) hardware...but extracting the Product Key with a tool and use it with phone activation seems to me a good idea, isn't it?

    Thanks, i'm looking closely to KMS activations...but, if it's possible to have a permanent activation... :D

    Permanent activation uses many steps which I didn't favor! Simply using KMS activator will let everyone happy! :D:D:D

    Phone activation is the way to permanent activation at least for now.
