    Assume you got a empty disc and an extra computer?

    Yes, I will do but not until tomorrow morning as I am not home at the moment. So will have to do it tomorrow. Just with my laptop right now and phone.

    Would you be able to get the Windows 8 key off of your Vaio tomorrow?
    Actually, I don't think they added the key sticker on any Windows 8 laptops...

    I have the VAIO with me right now. No product key on bottom but I think I have it in an old email when I bought the laptop.

    Your probably better off with what SIW2 suggested, anyway.

    You will still need to burn this to cd or apply to usb stick.

    Can you do that Now, or will it be tomorrow.

    You can create install media if it is needed, but since this is an OEM device, you might be able to recover using what's already on the box.

    It might be a good idea to create it anyway...
    See OPTION ONE in: Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Let me see what I can find - but so that I don't chase an option you've already tried ...
    What options did you you try?
    Here's how you can create the install media - from the official MS ISO.

    My post must have been buried in the flurry of activity.

    Either that or I'm being completely ignored
