I found a program a few weeks ago called Pkeyui, no clue who wrote it.  It pulled the key from a Toshiba Win 8.0 laptop before I axed it and installed 8.1u1.  Read the key from the BIOS just fine.

It's a 5.5 KB file, no install needed.

 

I concur. Best app for the job!

Thanks. Since it's saved in the bios I shouldn't need to do anything else right?

 

back up the key just in case.

I'll do that in multiple places haha. Is it possible for that key to become removed from the bios?
