    It would be advisable for you to take a look at the following guide for doing a fresh install: Alternate Step-by-step Guide to installing Windows 8.1 Enterprise on the Dell Venue 8 Pro

    IIRC that allows you to do an unattended install, so you don't need the touchscreen. Alternatively, you'd need to attach a powered USB hub to your tablet and use a conventional USB keyboard and mouse for the install.

    You can find Windows 8.1 ISOs in various places (try searching for digital river links, I believe MDL has them) but IIRC Microsoft doesn't provide any official way to download them without an MSDN subscription so I can't post direct links here.

    As for the license key, if you're talking about the original one for the copy of Windows 8.1 core that came on your Dell I believe there is no public key as such, it's embedded in the bios. If you installed the correct version of Windows 8.1 (core, not pro) from what's written here it should already have picked up the key from your bios. You could try the instructions shown here, but I've not had any experience with that.
