Your OEM ID is different to mine, mine says "ALASKA"

Must be one of the differences between the 7 and 8!

Nothing, however it's known that if you flash/update the bios there's a chance you'll erase the key from the bios and you've lost it forever then.

Reassuringly, I get same answer using both methods.
Also with RWeveryting, just scroll down a bit below screenshot and you will see the key on one line, making it easier to cut and paste.

Please excuse my ignorance, I haven't had my Linx 7 very long and haven't had to use any software that expects me to have the right version depending on whether the machine is 32 or 64 bit, as rweverything does. 32 bit OS, x64-based processor says "PC Info" in Win 8.1 with bing. So do I need the 32 bit or the 64 bit version of rweverything ?

And does the "portable" version run from a USB stick ? I have a working USB adapter.

Many thanks
