    Can I reinstall 8.01 using the image on the web site

    My ACER E3-111 laptop came with Windows 8.1 64 bit home preinstalled but it came with lots of ACER bloat ware.

    Can I reinstall 8.01 using the created image that I burnt to a USB using the Microsoft create software on the web site?

    Will I need to know the windows 8.1 ID number or will it pick that up from the ACERs BIOS?

    How to download and clean install Windows 8.1 if you have an OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8/8.1 product key. -> link

    Note: If you have an OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8/8.1 product key, the Windows 8.1 installer should automatically detect product key from UEFI firmware (BIOS). If the Windows 8.1 installer can't detect Windows 8/8.1 product key from UEFI firmware (BIOS), it means that you have the wrong installation media.
