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

You can use ProduKey (assuming you haven't got it set up with a Volume Licence)

If you have the Asus OEM setup you should think about getting recovery media at some point otherwise you may be in trouble with a system failure (even if you have the key to hand)
