Any utility that actually works for retrieving the product key embedded in the BIOS of a computer that came with 8 installed originally. My machine crashed and the only way I could restore it was by downloading and installing the Windows 8 evaluation version, which is only licensed for 180 days. I have tried several programs that claim to be able to recover the embedded key, but none of them actually work. They just find the key to the version I'm running right now.
We got a nice Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook and all it needed was a hard drive. Now.. here's the problem.. I'm good with a screwdriver or a soldering iron but software isn't my strong point.
It's a genuine Windows 8 machine and as I understand it, it will have the genuine COA embedded in the bios right? Now I've tried installing Windows 8.0 64bit OEM which I believe is the correct uk ISO, and I've tried the Pro version also but with both, neither seem to pick up the embedded COA and therefor do not activate.
Am I correct in thinking that it might be because I have to use CSM mode in the bios to get it to recognise my installation media? If I had a UEFI version would it make any difference?
I have a product key for Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro (x64). I was wondering if it can be used as an everyday OS (listening to music, surfing the web, playing games)? I am aware that in Windows Embedded 8.1, metro apps/Windows Store are disabled. I was not going to use metro apps anyway.
Do regular desktop applications work perfectly on Windows Embedded 8.1?
I have a dreamspark account and in that I am provided with the Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro . So, I was thinking if there are any differences in that one and also would I be able to use it like a Home User?
I am also getting the Server 2012 Datacentre Edition. So which one should I go with? I plan to use VM's in the future though.

So, I have purchased some computers from Dell and they have Windows 8.0 Professional from the OEM. So, it was very easy for me to use my MSDN media, reinstall Windows 8.0, and it simply detected and used my Windows 8 embedded BIOS key. From there, I would make any adjustments needed, run sysprep, and grab an image. This allowed me to use that image on any of the Dell's that I purchased with Windows 8 and all was great.
Then, along comes the free upgrade to Windows 8.1. I took one of my Dell's, and laid down a clean windows 8.0 image. Then I ran the Store "free" upgrade to Windows 8.1. All was well. I then cleaned up the temporary files and whatnot and tried to run Sysprep only to be greeted with an error that said, "I cannot validate your OS installation". Did some research and found that you aren't supposed to run Sysprep on a machine that you ran an "upgrade". Instead, you are supposed to install from scratch.
Ok, let's do that. Grabbed the 8.1 ISO from MSDN, put it onto an installable USB key, started the install and it now prompts me for a key. It won't detect or use the embedded 8.0 key that is on the box. So, I cannot actually clean install Windows 8.1 with the embedded OEM key, even though I can freely upgrade to 8.1.
I'm not going to take my new Dell computers, lay down the clean 8.0 image and then upgrade each of them manually via the store to Windows 8.1. This takes way too long.
I'm not going to use my MSDN keys to install onto these machines, because I don't want them to activate these keys. They aren't the legit keys for these machines. These machines have legit OEM Windows 8 keys and 8.1 is a free upgrade to 8.0, so it seems like these legit keys would work. I paid dell to have a valid OEM license on the computer, that is what I want to use.
Any way to get 8.1 Pro to install clean, on a machine with an embedded 8.0 Pro key.
I have many files with several thousands hyperlinks embedded in them. How do I convert the embedded hyperlinks from .doc to .docx and from .xls to .xlsx. I do not have hyperlinks to internet sources in there.
I recently bought new hardware to upgrade my system. The whole works, motherboard, SSD, i7 processor, new RAM.

I get the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR 2 or 3 times a day. I found this mainly happens when I watch videos embedded in websites or browsing the steam store (when you browse a game there are embedded videos that play automatically in steam).
I just put together a computer yesterday, and while most things seem to be working fine, I've been having some problems with YouTube and certain websites that have embedded ads with animation. The computer either freezes up completely or sends me to a BSOD that cites the problem as WHEA_uncorrectable_error. It happens almost every time within a few seconds of the video starting. It also froze once just sitting on the desktop with only a Steam download in the background, but I haven't seen that happen again.
Oddly enough, I've run several games on Steam to see if it would have the same effect, but I haven't run into that problem yet while playing games. Netflix and Hulu also seem to work fine.
Nothing is overclocked. I got drivers for the video card and mobo from the company websites, although I'll admit that I don't know much about that. My report from the diagnostic tool is attached. My build is posted below.

I just recovered my windows system partition from an Acronis backup. Everything works fine except for anything that needs to write to Appdata. Cannot download, cannot run Dropbox, or create new user profile at logon. I have tried "Take Ownership", have set my user as owner via security settings, have given my user full control, but nothing works.
I have a bit of a problem here. I wanted to clone a 2tb sata disk from a karaoke machine, and when I inserted it into my NL54 HP server running windows 8 to perform the clone (to a new 2tb drive), the clone was successful. However, upon inserting the new disk in the karaoke machine, it just caused the karaoke machine to hang. Similarly inserting the original disk caused the same issue.
My question is, if Windows 8 alters or writes to (in any way) a new hard disk installed for the first time? I don't know the exact details of how the disk was previously formatted, however when I did install it in my HP server it auto showed up as a drive and files/folders were accessible - hence I assume it was NTFS.
What I really wanted to do was to do a clone whilst keeping the original write protected, however I don't think there was any pins on the sata disk to protect against this, so my options were limited anyway.
I have an 8GB flash drive that's write protected. There is no lock/unlock on the flash drive. How can I reformat/erase the contents so I can use the flash drive for other things? I've tried low level and that didn't work.
Completed a clean instal of 8.1 on a OCZ Vertex 4 SSD but cannot write any files to program files X86 folder? I am being told access denied. I have tried looking into the permissions etc but it will not allow me change anything in the Security User Permissions or anywhere else. I am obviously set-up as Admin but cannot get anywhere with fixing this issue.
I have two Windows 8 UltraBooks: a Sony Vaio SVT13126CXS, and a Samsung NP540U3C-A01UB. Both were setup fairly simply in December 2012, except that they both had the Intel/McAfee anti-theft software installed then. My kids use them for school work and typically put them to sleep when not in use. To our great frustration, they have found since about June 2013 that they are unable to write files anywhere on the hard drive when they get to school (they can write to a FAT32 USB stick). I suspect this is due to some Windows Update, but I don't know which one.
To fix this, I first tried explicitly giving the standard users ownership and full control of the My Documents tree, but that didn't work. Then I tried turning the UAC prompts down or off, but that didn't work (no UAC prompt/screen dimming/beep ever appears, anyway). Next I tried deleting their user accounts and files and re-creating their accounts as members of the Administrators Group, but even that didn't work. For instance, when they try to save a new MS Word document, a message box pops up saying something like "you need to ask an Administrator for permission" - which is bizarre, since they are Administrators! Trying to save on the Desktop or C: does not work either. I tried switching from sleep to hibernation, but that didn't work.
It finally occurred to me that the users were apparently losing part of their account privileges when the PCs were resuming from sleep. So I activated the password lock screen and sure enough that fixed the problem! Now when the PCs awake from sleep the users can enter their password to unlock the screen and then write and delete files at will. This is one of the most bizarre problems I have ever seen with Windows. I am posting it here for two reasons: underlying Windows 8 problem in this non-Pro version? So workaround (enable the password lock screen upon resume)
I have a lot of excel spreadsheets with embedded links to jpg and pdf documents stored on an NAS. In both Win XP and Win 7 I could set the file association to make them always open in the Win picture preview pane.
In Win 8.1 they will ONLY open in IE11.
I have changed the registry as directed by MS in this article to no avail.
How to configure Internet Explorer to open Office documents in the appropriate Office program instead of in Internet Explorer
Locate the subkey for the specific Office document type.The following table lists the subkeys for several common Office document types. Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003 Worksheet Excel.Sheet.8
After you identify the subkey for the specific Officedocument type, follow these steps:
If the Office document is an Microsoft Office Excel document, add the following value for all Microsoft Office Excel subkeys except the Excel.Sheet.5 subkey:
Value name: BrowserFlags Data type: REG_DWORD Value: 8
I do not want to view them in IE which is harder to zoom, and my habits do not change as easily as MS thinks they should.
Whenever I open new programs, my hard drive jumps up to 100% usage. The problem is my read/write speed looks like it's capped around 10 MB/s. The manufacture says I should get an average of 156 MB/s.
I have a 6 month old Dell XPS 8500 (i7, 8GB RAM, 1TB-7200 rpm hard drive). I consistently take care of it (defrag, clean sweep, virus/malware protection). See the dropbox link or PDF attached for examples of my issue.
My usb is apparently disk write protected. there is no physical switch on the usb. i can't understand it as it was working perfectly one day & the next it was write protected, it maybe to do with the fact that i formatted with 'wii backup manager' allowing me to put downloaded wii games onto the usb & play it on the wii, but i can't remember if i done this or not.
I googled the question and someone said to run cmd, diskpart, list disk, select disk X, attribute disk clear readonly, clean. it goes on for a few more steps but at this point i get the error message "DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O Device error. See the system event log for more information"
What can i do. the usb is only around a year old so shouldnt be damaged already.
