Windows 8 Consumer Preview Key

Did you download Windows 8 Consumer Preview, burn it to a disk, and then get presented with the “Enter the product key to activate Windows” screen when installing and not sure what to do? Ran into that myself just now and according to the Windows 8 FAQ:

If you install Windows 8 Consumer Preview using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup program, you won’t need to enter a product key—the setup program automatically provides the product key. If you create installation media, start your PC from the media, and then install Windows 8 Consumer Preview. You’ll need to enter this product key: NF32V-Q9P3W-7DR7Y-JGWRW-JFCK8.

There you have it. Enjoy the show.
