Hi RajeshK69 , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Either calling in technical support for a recovery image or simply download a Windows 8 ISO image would allow you to automatically activate it as long as you image it with the same Windows version that came with your machine. 

Drivers available from the support website too.

 

Here is a guide to do it.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards
