Windows 7: Acer W500P Windows 7 Product Key

Acer W500P Windows 7 Product Key

Hi,
I recently got an Acer W500P tablet which came with Windows 7 Pro x32. I am planning on installing the new Windows 8 as I have been told it is perfect for tablets.

Before I do this I want to make sure if it doesn't go as well as I hope it will I want to put Windows 7 back on. But it didn't come with a CD or Product Key.

How can i find what product key it is using?
I tried a program "WinKeyFinder", it gave me a key but when i googled half of the key it came up with the whole key in the results (websites giving away keys for free).

Was that my key or did the program give me the wrong one?
If that was my key, would it work if I do a clean install of windows?

Thank you in advance.

That was your key most likely, and yes it'll work if you do a clean install.

I googled my completely legal OEM key, and it came up, so I'm guessing all keys show up. I really don't know.

First: If your product key is on the internet, then there is a high probablity that you have an illegal copy.

Run WVCheck please.

WVCHECK

Please download WVCheck from Artellos.com.
  • Double click WVCheck.exe. (If you downloaded the zipped version you will need to extract it.)
  • As indicated by the prompt, This program can take a while depending on your hard drive space.
  • Once the program is done, copy the contents of the notepad file as a reply.

What you know now is that the Win 7 wasn't a "hacked" version.

You still will probably run up against problems when you try to validate the Win 7 if others have been using the same key to "validate" their Win 7.

the rule is really simple:
1 license = 1 machine
1 machine = 1 license.
