Retrieve Windows 8 Key encrypted in BIOS

Microsoft moves Windows 8 OEM Product Key to BIOS embedded. The product keys are no more sticked on the computer. You will only see a Windows 8 logo sticker and nothing else. So if you reinstall Windows 8, no need to hunt for the key, the installation will automatically pick up the key from BIOS, provided you install the same version of Windows 8 OEM that came along with the laptop.
