Can I do a clean install of Windows 8 on my computer without the disc and without jumping through hoops? I already have a legit copy installed I just lost the disc while moving.

I helped a friend reinstall 8 once. His HDD crashed, and he put in a new, formatted one. Used the USB booter due to no CD, and it automatically used his old product key to authenticate his copy. It is stored on the motherboard itself due to MS magic
>>
>>48827095
Copy and paste the following into a Notepad window:

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") MsgBox ConvertToKey(WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId")) Function ConvertToKey(Key) Const KeyOffset = 52 i = 28 Chars = "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789" Do Cur = 0 x = 14 Do Cur = Cur * 256 Cur = Key(x + KeyOffset) + Cur Key(x + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24) And 255 Cur = Cur Mod 24 x = x -1 Loop While x >= 0 i = i -1 KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput If (((29 - i) Mod 6) = 0) And (i <> -1) Then i = i -1 KeyOutput = "-" & KeyOutput End If Loop While i >= 0 ConvertToKey = KeyOutput End Function

You’ll need to use File -> Save As, change the “Save as type” to “All Files” and then name it productkey.vbs or something similar ending with the vbs extension

This will display product key
Open CMD administrative
slmgr /dlv
slmgr /upk(activation ID)
This will uninstall product key

Open CMD Administrative
/ipk (product key)

Damn that sucks, I have a USB drive but it's got all my important docs on it and I can't find my spare.

I guess I'll have to get another one tomorrow.

Sucks that even with the CD and the key in my bios I can't reinstall
>>
>>48827250
If you have the CD you can just install it off that with the key. You can also burn it to a DVD with that installer.

Also, I just installed a replacement 550w PSU (replacement) so that's another limit for me.

78XX to 79XX isn't much difference. Not worth the upgrade. Go for a 290 then or 290X, might be overkill but cheaper as the new Radeons came out.

>4690k and Z97, but not aftermarket fan
Either save a bit and drop the overclocking gear, or get an aftermarket fan. I'd recommend the fan anyway since it'll be quieter/cooler.

>3 250Gb SSDs
Unless you have a specific application in mind, don't do this. The 500Gb and 1Tb are cheaper price/Gb. You could also just replace the second two with large HDDs, and keep your OS on the first one, again depending on what you're using the PC for.

>$130 PSU in a single GPU build
I cannot be assed to search for a recommendation, but seriously, you should be able to find something that will do the job for a lot less than that.

>$50 optical drive
Jesus Christ. Literally just pick the cheapest one that has the features you need (can do BluRays and Read/Write DVD/CDs if you're needing that). Getting anything more expensive is silly, it's a fucking optical drive. Also, if you're only going to use it to install your OS, you're doing it wrong.

Why does iTunes assume you're only going to plug one phone into a computer? At my company I talk to people inadvertently syncing their kid's games onto their work phones because the personal Apple ID is signed into iTunes and the shitty software doesn't even say "gee this is a different device, maybe we should set up a new sync profile and ask the user if they want to use another Apple ID"
>>
>>48824965
The real issue there is that they're sharing Apple IDs which is something they shouldn't be doing. They should set up accounts for their children and use family sharing to prevent things like that. And if it's people sharing a computer with separate IDs they should have multiple users.

and here I was expecting someone the iOS development team answering questions about XNU.

Instead I got some cuck with a halfwit certification.

So apparently windows 2k3 is getting dropped by Microsoft leaving most of their customers servers running an OS without receiving security patches, similarly to windows XP. What do?

They're expensive though, specially when the machine costed 200 at the time I got it, spending another 30 or more makes me cringe as a poorfag
