    How to find your Windows 8/8.1 OEM product key.

    This tutorial will explain how to find the Windows 8/8.1 product (license) key that is embedded in the BIOS, this is for machines that came pre-installed with Windows 8/8.1.

    The following command will only work on OEM machines, it will not show a result for Retail, MAK or a KMS key.

    Step One::

    Open command prompt as an Administrator, instructions can be found Here.

    Step Two::

    Copy and paste the following line into the command prompt window:
    powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query ‘select * from SoftwareLicensingService’).OA3xOriginalProductKey"
    Press Enter.

    The product key will now be displayed under the command line.
