8.1 Key is not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was provided a Key ending in 82M37 and it gives me an error - This product key didn't work.  Please check it and try again, or try a different key.

    I have tried copy and paste as well as manually typing.  I need help obtaining a valid 8.1 Preview Key so I can finish my install and check it out.

  • So I just realized why the key isn't working but where do I find a correct key?  I downloaded Window 8.1 Preview NOT Embedded and after download was complete I went looking for a key after initiating the install and didn't even realized I got in this thread for Embedded.  

    Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
