What causes this error?




This error can occur due to various reasons, such as:



  • The product key you entered is invalid, incorrect, or already in use.



  • The USB drive is corrupted, damaged, or formatted incorrectly.



  • The ISO file you downloaded is incomplete, corrupted, or tampered with.



  • The USB drive is not compatible with the BIOS settings of your computer.



  • The USB drive is not plugged into a USB 2.0 port.



  • The installation media is not compatible with the edition of Windows 8 you are trying to install.




How to fix this error?




To fix this error, you can try the following solutions:



  • Verify your product key. Make sure you enter the correct product key that matches the edition of Windows 8 you are trying to install. You can find your product key on the packaging of your Windows 8 DVD or on a sticker attached to your computer. If you bought Windows 8 online, you can find your product key in the confirmation email or in your Microsoft account. If you upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, you can use the same product key that you used for Windows 7.



  • Recreate your USB drive. If your USB drive is corrupted or formatted incorrectly, you may need to recreate it using a different tool or method. You can use the [Windows Media Creation Tool] to download the latest ISO file of Windows 8 and create a bootable USB drive automatically. Alternatively, you can use a third-party tool like [Rufus] to write the ISO file to the USB drive manually. However, you need to make sure that you select the correct settings for your BIOS mode (UEFI or Legacy) and partition scheme (GPT or MBR).



  • Check your BIOS settings. If your USB drive is not compatible with your BIOS settings, you may need to change them to enable booting from USB. You can access your BIOS settings by pressing a specific key (such as F2, F10, or Del) when you turn on your computer. In the BIOS settings, you need to look for options like "Boot order", "Boot priority", "Boot mode", or "Secure boot". You need to make sure that your USB drive is listed as the first boot device and that it matches the BIOS mode and partition scheme of your USB drive.



  • Plug your USB drive into a USB 2.0 port. Some computers may have issues with booting from USB 3.0 ports, which are usually blue in color. To avoid this problem, you can plug your USB drive into a USB 2.0 port, which are usually black in color.



  • Select the correct edition of Windows 8. If your installation media is not compatible with the edition of Windows 8 you are trying to install, you may need to select the correct edition manually. When you boot from the USB drive, you will see a screen that asks you to enter your product key. Instead of entering your product key, you can click on "I don't have a product key" and then choose the edition of Windows 8 that matches your product key from the list.




Conclusion




We hope this article helped you fix the error "We couldn't verify the product key. Please check your installation media." when installing Windows 8 from a bootable USB drive. If none of the solutions worked for you, you may need to contact Microsoft support or a local technician for further assistance.
