    Clean Install of Windows?


    I have a computer that has preloaded Windows 8 with all the bloatware crap and am hoping to possible get a clean install of Windows 8? How can I do this? I have a ASUS CM1745 with an AMD A8-5500 and Radeon 7560D. I can't seem to find my product key either.

    How can I do the clean install? Will the product key work if I use it with a clean version?
