If you follow this blog on regular basis, you should notice that I have covered about the official release of Windows 8 Pre Beta (Developer Preview). I also wrote a post on how to create a bootable Windows 8 by using USB flash drive and the step-by-step installation of Windows 8 (dual boot and virtual machine). Windows 8 Developer Preview doesn’t require any activation whatsoever and the installation is quick.
By now, I bet you are pretty much excited to explore every feature of Windows 8. One of Windows 8 great features is “Refresh and Reset”. Basically this feature helps us to reset and refresh Windows system without losing a single file. Unfortunately, at this stage, it asks us to key in Windows 8 product key. This is very perplexing to many of us because to the best of our knowledge, there is no product key being supplied along with Windows 8 ISO files.
This situation has triggered people to seek help from MSDN Forum. According to Microsoft, in order to fix the problem, you are required to enter the following product key thus enabling you to further use Windows 8 Developer Preview.
