Rob: Your product code is held in the firmware (aka BIOS) chip. It is only used for authentication purposes by the specific windows with bing version of 8.1 as supplied on the tablet . The full retail version of 8.1 would need its own product code.
I don't know if there will be an equivalent windows 10 with bing version.. That's for Microsoft to decide..
You can only lose the embedded product code by performing a firmware upgrade.
I suggest that you make a written copy of your product code anyway (always a good idea!). If you ever wish to update your firmware then just ask on this forum or PM me. I can easily update your new firmware with your product code. You can then upgrade the firmware with no problems with windows authentication.
Your product code is tablet specific and is of no use to anyone else, even with the same tablet model. This is by design.
If you are having problems downloading the toolkit and drive archives then PM me. If you wish, send me an 8GB flashdrive, 1 dual layer DVD or 2 single DVD's and I'll return them "ready to go"...
Talking about product keys, we're launching LinxTablet.co.uk Premium next month which will back your product key up to your LinxTablet account
