    so i got my computer and i realized it came with a sticker saying windows 8 pro and i did research and found out that a windows 8 pro product key was embedded in my bios i found out also if you get windows 8 media files and it will say you don't need windows 8 key. But i cant find media files. so i was wondering if anyone could help me activate windows 8 pro.

    also i am new to this website so if this was already answerd i am sorry. i already spent a long time figuring this out and i just want a answer. thankyou in advance and please help.
    also it didnt say a product key on the sticker it just says windows 8 and it is blue
