    Thanks. Are the steps in that thread still possible if I don't have the original OS installed on the laptop anymore?

    My question is Windows 8 OEM did not have a COA on it. so if he had a KEY -listed on it. probably a Generic upgrade.
    Windows 8 and genuine MS Download or several found on MDL sinply insert the media and Boot and go... it will install and Activate automatically.
    any way all 3 of my OEM Windows 8 works that way.....

    It also depends on the type of ISO.
    win8.1 unfortunately does not like to install using win8.0 oem keys.
    It allows them post-install, but won't auto-import them during install like win8.0 setup.
