    my question is How can I get the product key of windows 8.1 pro which is located in BIOS of the computer without need of installing window 8.1 ( I mean with my present windows 7 ) ?
    Thank you

    The tool just reads the embedded key.
    That was put there by the OEM which also (presumably) supplied the copy of W8.1 which was downgraded, so they go together.
    A key which is entered manually by the installling user is not stored there.
