    [HOWTO] Clean install of Windows 8 and preserve your activation

    So I found this link and performed a clean install without any error. Only thing is after the install you touchpad won't work so you MUST use the keyboard to navigate.

    After you clean installed, go to ASUS support site and download ALL drivers and install them. Then make sure in Device Manager, there is NO single yellow exclamation mark beside any devices. If you've installed all drivers correctly, your system should be back to retail state with everything working.

    Guide to preserve Windows 8.x OEM Activation

    Note: for office 2013 H&S edition, you can download it off the MS site offcially, but you will need to have your office product key which is located on the sticker in the box.

    Go to this URL Download, back up & restore Microsoft Office products -, log into your account, activate your version if you haven't yet (I found that I have to reactivate via URL above even though I already ACTIVATED during initial tablet setup..weird but whatever).

    Confirm clean install work perfect. I clean installed Windows 8.1 Pro WMC activated (windows8.1_20in1.iso) and Office Pro Plus. Delete any partion and create new to install Win to sMMC.
