As it would appear to be a computer with preloaded Windows what you can do with the key might be limited - all depends on what you have in mind.

Starting with Win8, OEM's embed and encrypt the product key in the system's BIOS. See this article for more information.

Just to confirm that despite the above mentioned changes (#2) the key finder given in #1 will still work. Just checked it since my upgrade to Win 8.1 and it still shows it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
