    I'm getting a used Dell Venue 8 Pro and I intend to do a WIMBoot install to it but in doing so I think I kill the onboard Office 2013 H&S installation and I need to know if I'm setting myself up to lose it forever or if there's some way to pluck the OEM key out of the system and then reinstall it once I'm on the other side (I'm almost certain it's not going to be packed with the OEM key used to install it).

    I have two Office 365 subscriptions I can fall back on if this turns out to be a flub so it's not super-critical but I hate to lose software that is technically mine if there's something I can do about it.

    I'm quite familiar with ProduKey but I don't think it works for Office 2013.

    I was going to try it anyway but I wasn't holding high hopes.

    I use it on Win8.1 full updated and Office 2013 fully updated with no issue. Try:)
