System Recovery With New Motherboard (Win8.1)
I was going top see if i could download a recovery and boot it on the computer and see if that can automatically download the key for me. Can't find your answer ? The old PC was based on a VIA chipset. If you have any Acronis product with this feature maybe you can use it to create a drive/partition image. http://itsolutionsmarter.com/system-recovery/hp-recovery-manager-system-recovery-greyed-out.html
I got the message that the hard drive MUST be 1863 GB (2TB) to use the DVDs. There are various tools to discover a Windows 7 or before license, OEM or otherwise. Anything else at all? Then, boot to the utility and point it to the system image, and perform to the restore. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/System-Recovery-with-New-Motherboard-Win8-1/td-p/5878882
Yeah after an hour or so of playing a game it told me i had to REactivate windows.It thought i was trying to activate a second computer, which is NOT whats solved Any way to swap motherboards without having to reinstall Windows 8.1? I have a computer for my girlfirend that may or may not have a non genuine windows 8 because i may or may not have lost the key. I am pretty sure the motherboard would trigger reactivation given there are so much hardware integrated into the motherboard these days.
Another thing to note is; since I built in the new mainboard I couldn't start any Windows 8(.1) Apps such as the store, not even the "Change PC settings" button in That's why they give you the option of creating a DVD set when you first turn it on. If it returns OEM key, Your device has OEM key preinstalled and you can use that. It will have a brand new hard drive.
and how would they find out if i did sell it? solved Do I need to reinstall windows after replacing motherboard and CPU? Or what, if... https://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/21724-re-install-windows-8-w-new-motherboard-cpu.html He said that is fine.

- Windows 8 keys will not work on a Windows 8.1 install and vice versa.
- I tried using the recovery DVDs to Refresh the system, but received an error that this media is invalid.

- Just curious, what would be the repercussions for selling it?
- I've had activation failures when reusing a Windows license after destroying the old machine.
- Includes multiple keys of just about everything.
Or you could create a USB recovery drive from another 8.1 or 8 OEM preinstalled computer and use it on the computer with the new drive. Free? There are two possible scenarios: Dell replaced the motherboard with a new motherboard which does not have a BIOS Embedded system locked preinstallation key (this shouldn't of happened). Do you really need a Windows 8 Ready Motherboard in Drivers & Hardware I'm stumped with people saying you do and don't need a Windows 8 Motherboard Really need help with

He said the only way it wouldn't work is if i replaced the mother board because i even asked what if i got a new hard drive.
I found a couple places that had the software but I'm not sure if its exactly what i need. I have used the Flash USB method and the DVDs I made when I first bought the PC and neither of them work. Hi there If you DO get activation problems try activating by phone and just say your computer broke (after all you were UPGRADING from an old machine) so you are moving his comment is here I do not have the original hard drive, so i do not have the original recover partition or any of that.
dmiller79May 8, 2014, 9:00 AM On the topic of Windows activation, my understanding is that Windows makes a hash file based on the id of specific components (CPU s/n, MB, HDD, I might as well just sell this computer for 70 dollars less and then buy a new better one thats not all ****** up. I replace the HDD and insert the Dell installation media and proceed through the installation until it asks me for my product key.

yeah its pretty sweet You cannot sell that. The new motherboard was using an INTEL chipset. I think you may have to contact MS to rectify your situation, otherwise they will think you are in violation of the EULA. I contacted asus, they do not offer recovery media for windows 8 at all.
Even if i have the product id (not key) and i also had the pre-activated serial key and they can't do anything with either of that info. (this was for a Remember to create UEFI compatible boot drive.

They said that in order to use the oem key, you have to have a oem instal of windows. I am also going to swap my current AMD A10 6800k APU to a shiny new, faster, overall better AMD FX 8350. The report stated that the OS was not reloaded by the repair center. Good luck everyone.
