    Hi there,
    I have an Hp with Windows 8 x64 Single language key in it's bios.
    I can install Windows 8.1 single language and it would activate automatically, but the problem is that I need a windows 8 singlelanguage iso.
    Can Anyone provide an esd or iso of such?
    or can I convert en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso to a compatible image to my system.

    No official (MSDN/Technet/Techbench) ISO of Windows 8 CSL is available/leaked; only few OEM ISOs & recovery/syspreped images were available.

    @crytoy

    Is there any specific need to stick with 8? 8.1 or 10 CSL is the default (& authentic) upgrade option for that.

    Though windows 8.1 sl is working, I prefer Windows 8.0. So if anyone can share his recovery esd or iso i would appreciate.

    @John Sutherland

    You didn't post feedback there regarding the activation by phone suggestion - usually it fixes the issue. I've never encountered any such issues personally.

    I've read something on mdl about that, irrc it had to do with the msdm key being blocked or something, not because of establishing a hwid from it. I see you linked to the thread already :)

    John Sutherland I have tested en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso and it doesn't work. I always had windows 8, so i still have the original key hardcoded.
    Tito All the links that you provided are dead.
    abbodi1406 Thanks man!!!

    Out of curiosity, don't all Windows OSes do that (read the key from BIOS, I mean)?

    Nope, afaik 8 or 8.1 was the first who did use the MSDM, at win 10 first official release (10240.16384) they stopped it for a while, when 10586 got released it was resumed, together with the so-called 1 year free upgrade to 10 and the use of working win 7 and 8.x keys for activating 10.
