How to install windows 8.1 on Dell venue 8 pro and activate with original product key

This question is not answered
Hi, Unfortunately my dell venue 8 pro has got some issues and i re installed windows 8.1 pro. But its not working fine as its not a genuine version. Can someone help me to install windows 8.1 32 bit and activate with the original product key that came with the product. I've noted it down ? Thanks, Ram

  • Hi, Thanks for your reply. Yes. I need your help. I kept my tablet inside a draw as i couldn't use it. I've already downloaded all the drivers. If it goes well for you please guide me how you did that. I'll also try to get original 8.1 iso. Thanks again for your help. Ram.

  • Hey,

    Please can you tell me in details what's the steps, because I have the exact same problem, and I can't use the dell venue 8.1 key to install windows again.

    So what's the solution??

    THanks

  • well do you have all that the equipment in the list
  • ok you need to download the torrent iso of windows 8.1 but you will not be using the hacked but the not hacked one so I don't think Microsoft will care
  • ya I see that google disabled it I will get you a new link ok
  • there go back to the list I gave over what you need and if updated it so you can get what you need
  • please don't use magnet link until I say so im going to check it is good ok I already have download it

    I would download this. Get it from MS.


    And if I were you, next time this happens I would consider simply doing a reset of the system. I do it regularly on most of my systems so they're fresh and speedy.

  • well you cant
