    dear all,

    i don't know whether this trick is already found or not, but i found out this trick interesting.

    First:

    Get a Windows 8.1 ISO

    Second:

    Mount/Burn the disc, then run the setup.exe on your PC

    Third:

    When this screen comes up

    ProdKeyPage.png

    Enter the generic product key, then, after the generic key works, replace the field with your own key.

    EDIT: If you put your own product key before inputting the generic key, it will fail the key check.

    Fourth:

    Follow all the steps, and enjoy :D
