    My notebook has a Win 8 OEM key in UEFI.
    After wiping my hard disc I want to install Win 8 retail instead of OEM version.

    Because this is not possible with stored OEM Win 8 key I want to boot with a Win 7 BootCD and
    patch the UEFI with a Win 8 retail serial key.

    For that I need a Program like SLIC which helps me to accomplish this task.

    But where do I get this SLIC tool?

    is there another way to enter a new Win 8 key into UEFI from Win 7?
