    There are keys which you can get from but you need to activate it thru skype or phone activation. But what is your Windows 8 edition? Is it core? Pro?

    I think there is only so few available keys right now. And I know only keys for Pro WMC phone activation.

    you need retail/enterprise edition, use a mak key to activate by phone, this works with 8.1 pro/enterprise and server 2012 r2
    It don't work with either coresinglelanguage or enterprise's evaluation editions.
    open command prompt (admin mode) and type
    Code:
    slmgr /dlv
    , you gonna find what edition is.
    cheers

    begging for keys is prohibited on MDL. READ THE RULES :eek:

    Isn't that basically what the OP did? I'm having the same issue as him and was asking for help...sorry if what I asked is not permitted but I was just following what he said....

    Check your key and post the results (do erase personal contents): http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/20816-The-Ultimate-PID-Checker
    The one who has sold it to you is the one you have to talk to! If you have got no serial then you are ripped off and cannot expect that you can get one here.
    Edit: If you mean with purchased you have just got it then yes, sharing licenses / asking for keys is not allowed at MDL!

    The bold one is quite different if he's paid for it.
