I lent my windows 8 key to a friend, now I want to use 8.1, do I get a second key?
I bought 8 but then my pc died and I lent my friend the 8 key for him to use on his new pc. I recently re-built a pc, and since I had 7 I'm using that until I can upgrade to 8.1, however, I don't want to ask my friend to buy a new license because he's a good friend. I was clear that I would need the key in the future, however, I've been hearing that you get a second separate key for 8.1 and it works as a separate key. Is this real? Will I get a second key? I have that windows media player key too that could be used to activate windows but I think that's patched. Anyways, is there anything I can do to receive a duplicate or will my buddy have to buy his own windows key?
