I'm changing my motherboard, so I need the product key to reactivate windows. No sticker on or inside the case and nothing in the documentation. It's a Medion pre-assembled and installed machine.
At the bottom of my System page it shows a key for win 8.1. Is this what I want? Will it suffice to reactivate windows? It seems obvious but everything I've googled says the key is hard to find in the registry. Thanks.

For a preinstalled 8 or 8.1, it is indeed licensed to that original motherboard. You'll probably have to go through the manufacturer for an install disk and key. Talk to them and see what happens.
Or, you can run keyfinder on your OS Drive and see if that doesn't retrieve it for you. Only problem is you have to booted into that drive to run it.
