    well it was either regular, pro or single language..

    no way to tell what version the product key is for..

    so try all three versions, I guess..

    Or look for a windows 8 sticker on the PC to help ID the version

When I select the boot from CD option it throws another error that the BCD store is corrupt insert the installation media. But it is booting from it only.
