windows 8 installation disk

hello to all the community,

my name is enrico,

I own a lenovo z500(no touch) with windows8 x64..

laptop is ok, really ok, but as every laptop,i think , after some years it need a fresh install..

Now, I know that there is a recovery partition for this but unfortunately i delete itSmiley Sad cause I needed more space on my hdd.

I think that in my situation i can only install windows 8 using an installation disk. Am I right?

While buying the laptop(with windows 8) I also bought the os inside, so I think this is legitimate to have the installation media, right?

So I would like to ask you, how can I get an installation disk(iso) for windows 8 x64?

 

than you, enrico

Re: windows 8 installation disk

You need to buy the Windows 8 From Microsoft.

 

The OS included on laptops nowadays is OEM version, which means it can only be recovered from a recovery disk or partition.

You can try creating a OS disk by downloading the appropriate version of Win 8 but finding the link for that download is very very difficult.

AFAIK there are no more Win 8 on sale, only Win 8.1. Download Windows 8.1 installer free (not the pro version) using the media creation tool (which you can download here) to install it in a pendrive or dvd. Use the pendrive or dvd to install the os. The installer will autodetect the product key which is embedded in the bios.
