    This is Windows 10 ? If so go download MS Media Creation Tool and use it to make a Windows DVD/USB

    You posted in the Windows 10 sub-forum. Anyways, try downloading the ISO file from MS:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows8ISO

    On the above page, it says if you are installing for the first time, you need the Windows key. I didn't know that Win 8 has the same 'remember your hardware for activation' as Win 10. But since the above seems to imply so, you can give that a try. Also you may have the Windows key on a sticker on the machine. If not on the bottom, then maybe inside the battery compartment.
