    Windows 8.1 installation disc for a friend

    I have 8.1. For future reinstallation, I downloaded and burned an ISO from here:

    What I want to know is if this will work for a friend's computer and I can just use his Windows 8 product key to activate it, or is this installation media tied to my product key?

    Edit: Probably should have posted this at eight forums. My bad.

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    Yes you can use that media on his PC and Yes you can use his windows 8 key..
    As long as the media edition matches the installation key (Pro edition - Pro key) (Core edition - Core Key)
