    Ops, sorry, mixed up which forum I was on when I got the e-mail. Yeah, that won't work. Sorry to say, you should have made the recovery disks when you had the chance. I don't have a source for official Microsoft Windows 8 images and your PC likely doesn't have a COA sticker. I think you're in a real pickle now. If I think of something I'll post back.
