We’ve run into an interesting dilemma at work. We have a brand new laptop with Windows 8, that we need to install an SSD hard drive in, and then reload the current Windows 8 license onto. And we actually aren’t sure how to go about this… The laptop has no optical drive and didn’t come with install media of any sort other than a recovery partition (i imagine). The most confusing part is that there is no License Key on the machine.
I guess we’re going to try to retrieve the current license key using some program. Then we just need to find a usb version of the install media to use. Unless anyone has some bright insights for me 🙂
