    where can i get windows 8 64 bit iso? preinstalled machine


    Hi I have Lenovo z585 laptop. I would really like to get a iso for windows 8 64 bit. Now I tried this Download Windows 8 ISO (x86 / x64) File Directly From Microsoft | Redmond Pie
    but I can't because my I can't find my cd key and when I did find it using a program " The Magic Jelly Bean " but said it does not work because its not a retail key or something like that so I would like to know where else can I get windows 8 64 bit iso?

    The lenovo partition recovery software did not even give me an option to make recovery cd/dvd, it also did not give me an option to do a totally clean install.Click image for larger version

    This is a tutorial by Lenovo using the Windows 8 USB Drive Recovery app. (This may not be up to date.)

    Below are the instructions if there is an existing Microsoft Windows 8 install on the hard drive.
    1.Select the target operating system of Microsoft Windows 8 to reload over existing Lenovo preload.
    2.Select "Yes" to repartition the drives or "No" to keep existing partitions. For a clean install, the drives should be repartitioned.
    3.Select "Fully Clean the drive".
    4.Click Reset to begin the process.
    5.The reset/recovery process takes approximately 90 minutes.
    6.Once the reset/recovery is complete, the system will reboot into Microsoft Windows 8.

    Can't I get windows 8 64 bit iso just like windows 7 64 bit iso? Is that legal as long as you have the license key? I just want to restore my computer to a fresh new start. I just want a clean iso.

    Why do I need to buy the windows 8 installation dvd when they should have provided me that disc or let me make that disc in the first place? Lenovo parititon sucked so I removed it as it was useless because it did not give me no option to make a disc and it only restore back to factory setting. Lenovo wants $50 for a windows 8 disc.

    Again why do I need to buy it when they should have provided it to me in the first place? I don't care if they don't put the installation drivers but they really need to put the operating system with every laptop/desktop.

    nvm disregard this post but seriously they need to put the OS with the computer as drivers aren't really important but the OS yes. The reason drivers aren't important is you can get them of the website.
