I would never do that, I don't just do what ever solution that works in what ever condition. I would never call Microsoft to have them activate the system I did mention that earlier as well. (It conflicts with my own personal way of doing things.)

I don't believe in such ways. If this method does not work then I will just use the old image and then reformat it.

The system is still backing up the existing image. From the 1st test run it does not seem that it will ask for a the key but that still remains to be seen.

The Laptop only has a serial number sticker and no other info.

It is time to close this thread and mark it as Solved because all the tips that are needed have been provided and I no longer require more info on this.

I also no don't want any more of these types of tips.

Thanks for the rest

Just for info, on Win 8.1 machines the product key is embedded in the BIOS so it should auto activate.

However, the original key can be found with this cmd from an admin cmd prompt.

wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

I'll now lock the thread as requested.
