Windows 8 deleted

Hi,
I have ideapad Y500 with windows 8 original and no disc recovery and I made a mistake by changing the partition size and things go wrong with windows 8 lead to not work properly, in one way or another the windows had been deleted and I am asking if there is any way to retrieve the original windows 8? And if another recovery made by other same laptop model would work and retrieve it may by.
Please answer
many thanks.

Hello had same issue. If you get the OEM iso and re install the key should register automatically because its flashed into BIOS. Once you can pull windows back up use a key extraction program to find your OEM key. Here is link for instructions: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2328-uefi-unified-extensible-firmware-interface-install-windows...

 

Hope that helps!!!

Make sure that after installation from either USB/DVD that you goto the BIOS and change your boot sequence to Primary HDD/SDD first. Usually restoring to default setting will do the trick.
