Hi manishchand,

The Windows 8 product key will be mentioned at the bottom of the computer or inside the battery compartment. Also let me the reason why you are looking for a product key as Dell laptops come with pre-installed OEM version of Windows 8.

All the keys on the keyboard light up as there are wordings on it but on a spacebar key there is no letters so it doesn’t glow. It is normal on all systems with backlight.

Hello, I have the same problem. I have deleted the boot partition of windows 8 and cannot find the

serial number to download and install the windows again. Inside the battery section I couldn't find

a microsoft label with product key. There is a number written there, but I'm not sure that this is the 

product key.

Hi bagrat85,

The product key for Windows 8 operating system is pre-installed in the motherboard for Dell computers. If you have made a copy of Recovery DVD of the Windows 8 from this computer you can use that or you may want to contact Local Dell technical support and request for an OEM DVD or USB drive.  You can use the OEM Operating system and the product key will be automatically recognized by the Windows.

If you have any further questions please reply to the same post.

Hi bagrat85,

I would suggest you to check with them if they have OEM DVDs/USB drives.

Hi rushup92,

Dell does not ship operating system DVDs currently. I request you to follow the below steps to copy Operating system on a DVD/USB:

(1) Click on Dell Backup and recovery.

(2) Select recovery media

(3) Click factory backup.

(4) Now select which media you want to copy to either a USB driver or to DVD.

(5) Then insert the media.

(6) Click on continue and in the next screen select start.

(7) Follow the onscreen instructions.

If you have further questions please reply to the same post.

sir,

this wont work as my laptop is already formatted. It was a mistake of my brother. Is there any way in near future Dell will be shipping OEM for windows 8 and they can provide me one??? Cause buying a new installating media is very costly. I will just return the laptop to the company and seek another laptop. What do u suggest???
