    So the simple solution is to give the key itself, use the key given below if you are prompted again for the key.

    6RH4V-HNTWC-JQKG8-RFR3R-36498 (for the Windows 8 Client)
    4Y8N3-H7MMW-C76VJ-YD3XV-MBDKV (for the Windows Server 8)

    Windows 8 launched only beta version and i thing all the setup
    Take it by your self. You should go for next then it will take
    itself.
    But it need manually then you can enter following keys:-

    DNJXJ-7XBW8-2378T-X22TX-BKG7J
    6RH4V-HNTWC-JQKG8-RFR3R-36498
    4Y8N3-H7MMW-C76VJ-YD3XV-MBDKV

    So use any one to activate your windows 8

    Hello,
    Windows has only launched the beta version of windows 8 and i have used it too. But i did not require any key for it. It was done automatically.
    If you want to download the beta version then here is the link http://www.microsoft.com/india/windows/ie/IE8.aspx
    Just go on this link and click get it now.
    And ISO image will start downloading automatically

    Regards

    Every genuine OS needs a product key because to make their OS and system genuine so to do this we need a product key from the manufacturer or the company website.So if that is done during the installation then there will not be any problems of getting product key problems.So windows 8 needs a product key to use it as a genuine OS and it can be downloaded from the website of microsoft by purchasing it.

    Re: Windows 8 installation needs a product key?

    DEAR::""

    Theres a simple enough reason for this, Windows Developer Preview comes with the following product key out of the box: 6RH4V-HNTWC-JQKG8-RFR3R-36498.


    This being said, feedback indicates that testing Windows 8 is not always a perfectly smooth experience, but Build 8102 Milestone 3 (M3) is a pre-Beta release after all.

    For example, some testers revealed stumbling across an issue where a product key was indeed required of them during deployment, or as a part of the Reset process. If you find yourself in such a scenario then go ahead and use 6RH4V-HNTWC-JQKG8-RFR3R-36498 and everything should be fine.

    Once Windows 8 Developer Preview is installed, theres a powerful tool at your disposal to help you manage product keys, as well as deal with activation and licensing problems.
    The Windows Software Licensing Management Tool might be a command-line utility, but its very simple to use, as exemplified below.

    Just type cmd on the new Windows 8 Start Screen to search for the Command Prompt executable, but dont launch it immediately. Instead, right click it if youre using a mouse, or press it and drag it down on touch screens, to access the Advanced contextual menu with some extra options, including Run as administrator, which you need to select.

    The Windows Software Licensing Management Tool requires admin privileges in order to operate under normal parameters.

    Enter the slmgr command and hit Enter to bring up the Windows Script Host and an exhaustive enumeration of all the options for the Windows Software Licensing Management Tool.

    Youll only need a few of them to install and activate Windows 8, but feel free to explore what this utility has to offer.
    slmgr /dlv is the command you should use in order to get the tool to display detailed license information.

    Since the copy of Windows 8 Developer Preview I was using was fully activated, as you can see from the screenshots included with this article, I first uninstalled the existing product key by typing the following command slmgr /upk and pressing Enter.

    This left me with a copy of Windows 8 Developer Preview which no longer featured a product key, and obviously failed to remain activated.
    No worries, though, installing the product key I mentioned at the start of this article is really simple. All youll need to do is run this command: slmgr /ipk 6RH4V-HNTWC-JQKG8-RFR3R-36498 and thats pretty much it.

    Once the product key is in place, make sure to also activate Windows 8 Developer Preview. On a test machine connected to the Internet, enter the following slmgr /ato and hit Enter.

    The Windows Software Licensing Management Tool is also available in the server version of Windows 8 Developer Preview, but a different product key is required: 4Y8N3-H7MMW-C76VJ-YD3XV-MBDKV.

    Re: Windows 8 installation needs a product key?

    respected friend ,
    you did not mentioned that your window 8 is genuine or extract version i will solution for two problems
    for a genuine windows 8 they will provide you product key with your windows 8 installation cd so use the product key which is given and install windows 8 in your system

    if your windows 8 is a extracted version then you will get a product key along with your download file so use that key and install windows 8 in your system
    if you did not get the product key along with download then try this key

    XKY4K-2NRWR-8F6P2-448RF-CRYQH

    it works ..........

    Re: Windows 8 installation needs a product key?

    Dear friend,

    Windows 8 developer version can be installed without a genuine key. This is a trial version in which you can assess the
    features of new operating system Windows 8. You can select option of activating Windows later during installation procedure.
    Without registering this version, you will not be able to use all the latest features.

    Still, you can use the following temporary key

    3HBY3-3GNXP-22R96-CCMCB-HT67C

    Or
    KGQND-Q2HH6-XHXHC-89VWW-82KVC

    Thanks!

    Re: Windows 8 installation needs a product key?

    METHOD #1
    The most Easiest way to find your Product KEy is to check your Email Box . When you
    buy a Genuine windows then microsft sends you a E-Mail with Product key. you can
    retrieve your Product key from here

    METHOD #2

    * You can also use Third Party software to know or find your windows 8 Product key
    The Third party software that i have used one time is : "keyFinder"

    * Download keyfinder from link below :-
    http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/


    * Install it through easy steps


    * Then Run it from Desktop

    * It directly shows your Product key
