Lost Recovery Partition

Hi all,


New to the forum *Waves*


I've recently formatted my hard drive and noticed i did a full wipe like a boss.
 i've had a few issues and went to recovery and nothing was there! After looking into it some more i noticed i formatted my HOLE hard drive.


Is there anyone to get my windows 8 partition back? or request a copy of it somewhere? since the my Lenovo Z500 IdeaPad notebook doesn't come with a product key im not sure were to start.


Any and all help would be appreciated.
