    Windows 8 reinstalling with the same product key

    Hello Guys ,
    So I have founded this site in Microsoft :
    Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Windows Help
    which i think it may help me to reinstall windows ,
    So I have windows 8 and i used some programs to get my product Key
    then , i thought if i downloaded windows 8 again from the site and used the same product key i have now it will work .
    So , what do you think guys ?

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    This will not work if you use an OEM or system builders product key.
    Have you tried this? -> Refresh or Reset your PC from the manufacturer recovery partition. You don't need Windows 8/8.1 DVD/USB/ISO.

    Computer Type Laptop
    System Manufacturer/Model Number Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G6 2321ee
    OS Windows 8 Single Language
    If you have Windows 8 Single Language version (see screenshot below), then you must download Windows 8/8.1 Single Language version (see this link for help).

    Take a look at your MS store email, you find a link to download or buy a DVD.
