    This is very helpful, Barbanature! I followed all the instructions and it worked perfectly. Anyway, is it possible for any device either PC, laptop or smartphones to have an internet access from my laptop while currently using my own modem?

      Hello Jessi,
      The only way to install windows 8 without key is if the pre-installed CD has been cracked. and i don’t think the CD is out for now. The windows 8 is a new product try given it some months and all this will be available
