I have an ASUS mini laptop with Windows 8 on it. It was a bought as a refurbished unit so the recovery partition was removed prior to me getting it. There is no product ID key loctaed on this laptop but I know it is stored on the computer somewhere....can someone tell me where or if I can download & run a freeware program to get the product ID key in case I have to re-install the OS form a disk at a later date? Thanks
