    Hi

    The download links on MDL were removed and searching anywhere else, I can't find it. I don't have the recovery discs, windows install disc, or any discs that came with my laptop that I'm trying to re-install windows 8 again.

    I'm assuming that it's the original MS TechNet/MSDN file? If so, if my laptop already came pre-installed with windows 8, then upgraded to windows 8.1, do I need to install Windows 8 or Windows 8.1? I checked the back of the laptop where I would have thought the product key would be located but its not there. I assume that if I were to install the windows 8 iso file name : en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso would it then automatically detect the OEM product key or do I have to use a program to retrieve it?

    I could not even find this file on thepiratebay since majority is Windows 8.1.


    Windows 8 RTM English, 64-bit (x64)
    Filename: en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso
    Size: 3.33 GB SHA-1: 1CE53AD5F60419CF04A715CF3233F247E48BEEC4


    If I have to retreive the product key, would this work?

    if you really want/need "en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso" just google THAT name and pick the first hit (google drive). I would suggest as Tito has however.

    Yes I did that search but was unsure whether it was safe to download. I think that I'm going to try Tito first before downloading windows 8.

    Windows 8.1 with Update (multiple editions) (x64) - DVD - MultiLang

    Is this the one I download?

    -To install, just boot to the dvd or usb flash drive and enter the sku key. (vl versions such as pro vl and enterprise don't require this)


    So after I download the ISO Windows 8.1 with upgrade x64 dvd multi-lang? because it's not a vl verison (pro vl and enterprise), I would have to enter the sku key? and that sku key would be

    SKU = Core
    SKU = Professional

    I shouldn't have to enter a product key becauseit would automatically detect the OEM product key if I download, install the Windows 8.1 with update iso?

    Get the key now, as long as the system is still running. In System Settings under 'Activation' there will be an option to enter your key and activate :cool2:.

    If you're using one of my 8.1 dealies, just run the script in the windows\autokms folder or use microsoft toolkit here on mdl and select the uninstall autokms thing.
