    I see, thanks!

    And I did what you guys suggested, downloaded .ISO from Microsoft website and it automatically installed Home version and activated without asking me for a key
    Then you do have a Windows 8 key in bios.

    Yup. Product keys can be touchy.

    Always make sure you're installing the right version. :)
